    I just got a new Tab 3 and attempted to use the files on my NAS (net gear router with NAS configured)

    This is still working fine on my other devices (Tab 2 & note 3) BUT the new device when I browse to it via ES file explorer like the other devices it will connect, see the sub folders...... BUT THE BIG ISSUE IS it won't see any of the files, mp4, .jpg etc... this is making me crazy!

    All i can figure there is a default setting in the new device that is not allowing it to see the files. The folders are there, and like i said my other devices have no problems so it is not a setup issue with the NAS. The NAS is running on a net gear wndr3400v2 router and the ready share is working.


    I really need this answered ASAP if possible.

    THANK YOU!!!!!

    Try ol file manager and if you want to stream files from the pc by wifi use Bubble UPNP

    I was manually trying to configure everything.
    I did auto scan, works great and I can stream using es file explorer.

    Place videos photos and music in the right folders on windows like videos go in my videos then in WMP drag and drop the files into it the Bubble UPNP should see the files it does for me

    I am interested in this subject. I am about to install a NAS on my home system. One of its major functions will be to steam MP3/MP4 files direct to Samsung tablets.

    At present I stream from a USB drive attached to an active pc using ES Explorer. May rethink if can't stream directly to tablets.
