If you’re reading this post, you either want to use your DroidBOX® device like a NAS, or possibly want to ensure Kodi is able to write to the storage devices you have attached. If so, scroll down for the details…
We have included relevant screenshots to illustrate the steps required. If you’re unsure how to proceed, please do drop us a line.
First, you will need to sign into Google’s Play Store if you haven’t done so already. Please see https://droidbox.co.uk/how-to/first-run-of-googles-play-store for more details if you’re not sure how to do this.
Once signed in, please check all the applications are up to date. Click the menu button in the top left of the screen, then on to the Your Apps & Games entry. If updates are available, allow them to be processed.
Now click on the search bar at the top and type in sambadroid
Click the Open button
The following is just for people wanting to use Sambadroid without other devices on their network. If you’re using this application to share files to other devices, please click here to skip the section below.
A final test is to now reboot your device (don’t forget to make sure Kodi or DBMC has been properly closed down first), then re-check that Kodi or DBMC and SambaDroid are still playing nicely together.
