Tried directory /mnt and used nano editor, that failed.

tried direcotry /mnt/dietpi_userdata/volume1/Movies also with nano, and that worked.

I guess you used user dietpi? This is correct that this user can't write to /mnt directly as it is not allowed by file system permission. By default root user is allowed only to write directly into /mnt

What I'm trying is to add the libraries to Plex. they are stored on my nas (192.168.0.10) and I want to be able to watch them on plex. The path on my Synology is /volume1/Movies; /volume1/Series

In /mnt/dietpi_userdata/volume1/ the files are actually visible when logged in as user root, but I still can't add them to the Plex media server.

What is the error message in Plex and can you share

Code: Select all

ls -la /mnt/dietpi_userdata/volume1/
