Gotta Dump Windows Media Player Library

Using SoundTouch IV. Great sound. But annoyed with WMP error prone ripping. Missing files etc. Gotta find something better.

 

Currently my source files are on a PC. I know that, in this environment, I must use iTunes or WMP.

So, if I move my source files to a NAS, can I get some suggestions as to which library software will work. Looking at WD My Cloud or Synology NAS

 

Hope you can help me out.

Hello SingingEyeTie,

 

The WD MyCloud NAS drives are storage devices. They have library management functions but do not appear to include ripping CD's. For that you would need separate software on your PC. Hope this helps.

Hi SingingEyeTie,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us! Synology no longer works with SoundTouch. We recommend that you look at the WD My Cloud systems. Also, you wouldn't need any library software as it has it built in with the WD My Cloud storage. 

 

 

Hope that helps. Let us know if there is anything else you need. 

 

 

Thank you,

Will the built in Media Player in the WD Cloud NAS rip CD’s as well, or is it just a library management tool?

 

Thanks for your help!

Thanks very much. This is the kind of good practical advice that I was hoping to get. I will rip my cds with MediaMonkey.
