How do I change read and write access for a USB drive connected to my Arcadyan gateway?

Answered

I have Telstra Gen2 modem. I have a 1TB HDD attached to the modem which I can access with my TV, Laptop and mobiles. No issue there. Problem is I can not add or remove files from HDD while it is attached to the modem. Is there anyway to enable write and delete permission through modem settings? [I understand the security issue, I still want that option for convenience]

Thanks in advance.

The Bubble app uses DLNA so you will not be able to edit files on the Android device and TV. You need a app such as ES File explorer which uses SMB.

On the PC have you enabled SMB1.0 (Turn Windows Features on or off)?

Are you accessing the files on the PC using File explorer using SMB1.0 or are you using a media app such as VLC or Windows Media Player using DLNA?

I am using file explorer on my laptop. I use BubbleUpnp app for my android phone and Sumsung TV Detect the HDD automatically. As I mentioned earlier, no issue accessing file or device. Trying to find out a way to get write and delete privilege but no luck so far.   Screenshot_29.jpg
