I'm trying to find a really easy step by step guide to using the extra space on my SD card to store and play my music from. There are various threads here on the forum, but I'm a linux noob, so its all i bit complicated to me. I also understand that I need to create a symlink to the folder on the SD card where the music is stored so that mpd will know where to look, is that right?
I have a 64GB card, running the lastst version of volumio, and I would like to put my music in a folder on the SD card, mainly so I can use volumio as a portable music server on batteries without the need for extra power, usb hubs etc.
I can see that people have managed to do this, but I have been unable to find a simple step by step guide any where here.
I also need to copy my music on to the SD card, so I assume I can do this via a samba share, but I also need some help setting this up. I have been searching across the internet and tried various things, I feel like I'm almost there, but not quite, and it's soo frustrating. So if anyone can help with this which I imagine is pretty simple for an experienced linux user. I would be so grateful.
