Re: RPi not visible in Windows network WORKGROUP

Took me months to figure out why a known working Samba configuration for my Pi would no longer work and how to resolve that when Samba decided to change its defaults. It's not always as easy as it's meant to be. Yeah, and as a topping one of those nerds usually comes up with "Oh, you didn't read th...

OK, looks good, now the config of your samba server, especially the section for the NAS. And while you're on it: the output of sudo fdisk -l on the NAS. If /dev/sda/ is NTFS you surely used ntfs as an option for mounting, like this: mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs any checked that ntfs-3g is insta...

For fstab you need "password=..." and "user=...." etc

Re: Unable to mount smb drive

Can you mount the USB-stick on another machine? Check that you have the right path for the share, not the one in the file system of your router, but the one served by samba.

Which router, which samba and: which user have you configured on the router?

If you simply attach a single HDD or two to a raspi via SATA-USB adapter, raspi clearly is an option.
