1. How do I Disconnect Freecom MediaPlayer?
To disconnect Freecom MediaPlayer, we always recommend using the Eject option. If
you CRTL+click on the Netdisk on your Desktop, then you will be given an option to Eject
the Freecom MediaPlayer. You may also drag the Freecom MediaPlayer into your Trash.
After that, you can go into NDAdmin and Disable your Freecom MediaPlayer. If you are
using USB, then Ejecting the Freecom MediaPlayer is all that is needed.

Freecom MediaPlayer for Mac
2. I have installed the Mac Drivers and Freecom MediaPlayer will not Enable.
EN
Make sure you have the latest drivers, available at the Download Center.
Please check the following:
5
Verify that your cables are plugged in correctly and that you have a link on the switch
where Freecom MediaPlayer is plugged into.
Make sure that it is formatted to a file system that your Mac can recognize. You can run
Disk Utility (Application > Utilities > Disk Utility). This will allow you to see the drive and
format it to Mac OS Extended or MS-DOS File System.
When plugged in via NDAS (Ethernet), please try enabling Read Only mode and reboot
your Mac. It should show up on your desktop as a Hard Drive. Then use the NDAdmin
utility to enable Read/ Write mode.
If that still does not work, try plugging it in via USB to see if it is recognized just to make
sure the Freecom MediaPlayer is fine. If that works, then try reinstalling the Freecom
MediaPlayer software.
If it still does not mount, then try formatting the Freecom MediaPlayer again via USB
and retry Enabling the drive.
3. How should I format Freecom MediaPlayer?
It is recommended to format Freecom MediaPlayer to Mac OS Extended format using the
Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility). If you also have a Windows computer
as well, and would like to use it between the two, then you must format it to FAT32 for
it to be recognized on both computers. You may use the "MS-DOS File System" option
to format the disk in FAT32 (Mac OS 10.3 only). A 3rd party partitioning utility to format
the entire drive to FAT32 may be needed if you have Mac OS 10.2.
4. The Freecom MediaPlayer mounts up fine and I can see it on my desktop,
but it disappears randomly and reappears. What is going on?
This problem can occur if the connection between your computer and the Freecom
MediaPlayer are a little unstable. Make sure that you are not using any Hubs, and that
only Switches are being used to connect your computers and the MediaPlayer to each
other. If you are using a wireless connection, make sure your signal strength is strong. Try
to connect the Freecom MediaPlayer directly to your ethernet port on your Mac to see if
the connection is stable. This will ensure that the Freecom MediaPlayer's ethernet port
is fine. If your connection stabilizes, then try replacing your ethernet switch or router. If
the problem persists with any switch or router, a newer software version may fix your
issue. Check the Download Center for possible updates.
5. Can I acces the Freecom MediaPlayer from my Mac in a Windows OS network?
Yes you can, but there are limitations writting to the Freecom MediaPlayer with this
setup. First it is best to format the Freecom MediaPlayer to FAT32. Once you register the
Freecom MediaPlayer from your Mac, you will not be able to have write access if another
Windows OS computer has mounted read write. However the Freecom MediaPlayer can
be used for windows file sharing and can map from the Mac.
61
Freecom MediaPlayer
This way everyone can get read and write access to the Freecom MediaPlayer without
a problem.
EN
6. Can the Freecom MediaPlayer be left on over night?
5
Yes your Freecom MediaPlayer can be turned on 24 / 7. Before you turn off your computer
we do recommend that you unmount the Freecom MediaPlayer to limit future problems
with your Freecom MediaPlayer.
7. When adding Freecom MediaPlayer to my computer, it tells me that my ID
and Key are invalid. What's wrong?
You may not have entered all the alpha-numeric values correctly. There are no letter "O"s;
please verify that you have used the number "0" (zero) for anything resembling an "O."
Also please check your other letters as well; two V's may look like a W. Start by entering
only the Freecom MediaPlayer ID. The ADD button should not be grayed out if the correct
ID is entered. Once it is not grayed out, proceed to add the Write Key as well.
Please also make sure that there are 20 characters for the Freecom MediaPlayer ID, not
including the Write Key.
8. I cannot enable read/write access on more than one machine.
With our current Mac drivers, only one machine can have read/write access at a time. The
other machines will all have read-only access. We are working on a multi-write driver for
Mac, and is expected to be released sometime in the future.
9. Why can't my computer go into hibernation or standby?
If you want to use your computer in hibernation or standby, you must have Freecom
MediaPlayer disabled before that can occur. You can disable the Freecom MediaPlayer
through the NDAdmin utility.
10.It takes over a minute for the Freecom MediaPlayer to show up on my
desktop after enabling.
If you are running your Mac on a wireless connection, this may happen. A wireless connection may take some time to properly obtain a stable connection with the Freecom
MediaPlayer. If your Freecom MediaPlayer is formatted in FAT32, this may also cause
the mount to take long. If you wish to improve the speed, try reformatting the Freecom
MediaPlayer in Mac OS Extended (only if you have a Mac ONLY environment). Later
software releases may increase speeds, so make sure you have the latest driver release.
