I have about 100 - 150 GB Music/Videos/Photos in the 3 Service folder. When I start the Media Server and add this folder (e.g. Music) to the Mediaplayerlist, the server seems to be added correctly, but it hasn't been added at all.
But, therefore the Media Server seems to crash and in the System-info, it seems that the media-player service has been stopped and doesn't work.
Also the CPU shows 100 %
I received the device with the firmware v1.00.00.3 (seems it was an beta) and replaced it with the newest one from the Thecus website.
After i reseted the configuration (I'm used from some routers with this ...) but nothing helped
Also this issue is know at the Thecus support since 06.07.2009 - until now, no bugfix - It is a shame.
But if you read all the good critics they got from many PC-magazines - seems this guys was just in love with this tiny little nas....
If a baby break at home something, no one screams... If a big boy break something, he will be panished... (Its just an metapha.... small companies with small devices versus big companies with big devices...)

Neither... just poorly written. In my case, all I had to do to get it to work was removing "non-media" files that existed in my media folders. Non media means.... anything but .mp3, .m3u, .jpg, and so on. I had a few files that were a leftover from my previous media server (Twonky), some word documents or text file and other stuff that drove the mediaserver bonkers. Now it runs smoothly for me (mp3 only, though). It does take a good dose of patience the first time it successfully scans the folder....
BTW I came to this conclusion with the help of Thecus' people, so it's weird they didn't answer your support request....
I have no kind of relation with Thecus.... and will try to get rid of my n0204 asap! I'm only trying to get the most of it while I own it!
