Transferring Music

There are two ways to copy files to the Aurender's HDD. One is to use a computer connected to the Aurender Music Player via the Ethernet (LAN) connection. Another is to connect a USB memory device to the USB port on the rear panel.

Note: After song files are copied to the Aurender Music Player, the newly added songs or changes can only be seen after hard drive is scanned and the song database is uploaded to the iPad. This happens automatically a couple of minutes after the last changes to the hard drive. To see changes immediately, press the "Upload song information database" button in the Scanner menu located in Settings of the Aurender App. Depending on the size of the database, this can take a few second to about one minute.

PC Users

1. Open Network Connections and look for the Aurender Music Player.

2. Double click the Aurender Music Player and folders named "hdd1″ and 'hdd2' will appear.
Double-click this folder and you will be asked for the Username and Password. These can be found in Settings in the NAS Share section.

3. After entering the Username and Password, use your mouse to drag and copy files to the
folders on hard disk drive.

4. On the hard drive, folders may be created, named, or deleted.
To make a folder, right click on an empty space and click NEW-> Folder. The names for five folders on the hard drive will be shown in the second row buttons between ALL and MISC. If you have more than five folders on a hard drive, place square brackets around the folder names that you want - [My Music].

  

If the Aurender music server does not appear in Network Connections, input the Aurender IP address manually as follows:

1. Press the Windows + R on your keyboard (START -> RUN).

  

2. Type in two back slashes (\\) and the IP address of the Aurender music server.
(For example: \\192.168.1.171). The Aurender IP address can be found in NAS under SETTINGS on the iPad application.

3. Click OK and a window will appear with folders labeled 'hdd1'and 'hdd2'. Open the folder.

4. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password. They can be found in NAS under SETTINGS in the iPad application.

5. Drag and drop files in to hdd1'and 'hdd2', or sub-folders.

  

6. On the hard drive, folders may be created, named, or deleted.
To make a folder, right click on an empty space and click NEW-> Folder. The names for five folders on the hard drive will be shown in the second row buttons between ALL and MISC. If you have more than five folders on a hard drive, place square brackets around the folder names that you want - [My Music].

Note: Importing large libraries at once can take a very long time. We recommend importing files in batches.

  

Mac Users

1. Locate the Finder menu bar at the top of your desktop.

2. Click GO -> CONNECT TO SERVER from the navigation bar.

  

  

3. Type in 'smb://' followed by your Aurender's IP address.
(For example: smb://192.168.1.171) The IP address can be found under SETTINGS -> NAS.

  

  

4. Click Connect and a window will appear with folders labeled hdd1'and 'hdd2'.
Open the folder.

5. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password.
They can be found in the iPad application under SETTINGS -> NAS.

Note: If the Aurender is connected through a Gigabit network, the transfer speed will be roughly 50MB/sec. It could take 5-6 hours to copy 1TB of files. We recommend copying files in batches. The Aurender is able to playback music and copy files at the same time.

  

USB Memory Device   

Begining with Aurender System Software 4(5).3.130 USB copying for playback from a USB drive can be activated from the "Disk Information" tab in "Settings" in the Aurender Conductor App. Users can play files directly from an attached USB storage device (one device only) or copy the content into the Aurender's internal storage drive by selecting the command "Copy".    

  

If you wish to copy file content from an external drive into a specific folder you’ve created on the  Aurender internal HDD, you need to import using the same file structure employed on the Aurender.

  
For example, if you have a folder named "Music1/Rock/Eric Clapton/24 Nights" on your internal HDD and you want to copy another Eric Clapton album, “Clapton” from an external drive, then the folder structure on that drive should look like this: "Rock/Eric Clapton/Clapton”. After copying the album into the Aurender, the internal HDD file structure will look like: "Music1/Rock/Eric Clapton/Clapton”.
