Can't see the files on a WD NAS on LAN

Postby Bill52 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 11:28 pm

Hi there,

(WD = Western Digital)
Home network: a router and a switch.
Just installed Cinnamon 18.1 on a HP laptop. Updated whatever had to be updated.

I can see the 'computer icon' of the NAS in the Network Browser.
When i click it, it comes up with a folder called 'configuration'.
I can log into the configuration/admin OK.
But I can't see the files on the NAS.
Windows computers work fine.

Sorry but have no idea about the relevant terminology, don't know how to search for an answer.
Anybody could put me in the right direction?

Thanks.
Bill
