    Trying to futz around with zumocast and I like the premise, but does anyone know how to accomplish zumocast recognizing a 2ndary HD on your puter. Im running a SSD for boot and a 2nd HDD for data/media etc. Zumocast scans C:, can I make it read D: as well?

    Right click tray icon > preferences > add folder > ....you should have access to everything in My Computer. I don't have a 2nd hdd in my PC yet but just going on the clues of the interface provided.

    Zumocast cast is awesome. Streaming music over 4g at work all day with no lag. Watched an episode of Entourage on my lunch break as well. Love it so far.

    I got it see my C: and my external D: and even the files on my 8TB NAS, but it won't play any songs(.mp3) or videos(.avi, .mkv). I haven't realy had a chance to figure out what the problem is yet.

    All my MP3's and AVI files seemed to work ok. I did notice that some files that I had on my computer that did not have the proper codecs would not stream to my phone. Not sure exactly how zumocast works, but it seems that whatever plays on my computer should play on my phone. Will need to continue to test more files though.

    I was able to add as many drives as I wanted (5 separate hard drives, 1 TB each) by doing it the same way ).

    There are two solutions.

    1) Remove all Library folders (the defaults), since you can't stream 1 folder in addition to its parent directory as 2 folders. Only the parent directory.
    2) Share any drive over a home network as a folder and add the folder (Drive) into Zumocast via your network.

    As for file types...



    What files wouldn't work?

    I love Zumocast so far.
    Granted I've only streamed a couple of songs but it's FAST

    It is working great with my internal hard drive and an external direct attached hard drive, mp3, avi, mkv, everything. I have accessed files and streamed music, TV shows and Movies and it is just too amazing and fun. :) I am still having problems with my NAS(unraid) I actually got a couple of songs to play but mostly get errors and now it seems to be causing me to lose the network connection between my windows desktop and my NAS.

    But you have been very helpful and Zumocast works amazing and I love it - I just need to take some time to figure out my server issues. I don"t consider it a Zumocast problem at this point - I don't think my Server likes being accessed remotely :)

    Thanks again!

    Edit: Okay I think I've got it. Instead of adding the Network share, I mapped one of the drives in the server and added the mapped drive as a folder and I just streamed some video over 4G without a glitch.

    Zumocast is a total Blast. It is like having a phone with 10 Terabytes of storage. :)

    Sounds like you have some kind of antivirus blocking the install of the program

    We don't have 4G here yet... songs stream OK but videos are choppy with buffering. Does it get better? We should have 4G later this week.

    Unfortunately my Mac does not have either the latest operating system or an Intel processor. Processor switched a couple of months after purchase (sound familiar). Anyway, I may put some songs on my laptop to check it out, however, I've had an 80gb ipod for a few years that continues to rock. Never wanted the microcomputer that happens to be a phone, for music listening.

    I am pretty tickled with the program as well. But, I am using it to access pdf files of my work, from the field. So it is not just limited to music and pictures. I have not tried XLS or DOC's, but it looks like any file that has a corresponding application on the phone to view/use may work. I am fortunate that I already have my drive structures on my PC set up so that "sensitive" personal and work stuff does not have to be pathed in order for me to access these pdf files. I am still a little hinkey about the potential security issues, but I think a little common sense setting up the home/work PC can alleviate some of the possible issues.

    If you have your ipod library on your Mac (and wasn't bought from itunes), create a playlist of the entire library and copy that playlist file to your laptop and stream the playlist from your laptop to your phone.

    Currently streaming a 208gb itunes library and streaming my playlists just fine. Quality will obviously change depending on connection and your streamer computer.
