Hello. New to using songKong and I'm attempting to fix files on my NAS from Windows 10.

I think I have read and write permissions set up correctly on the Shares, but I'm still getting the following error repeatedly when SongKong tries to save changes to a song:

Unable to save changes: Z:\Shared Music\Library\Music\{Artist}\{Album}\{Track}.mp3 java.io.IOException: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation 


Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really want this to work so I can be one step closer to freedom from iTunes

thx,

The filename shoudn't be

Z:\Shared Music\Library\Music\{Artist}\{Album}\{Track}

because the {artist}, {album} and {track} parts should be replaced withe the actual values for the particular file, so it does look to me like you have done something weird with the filename masks. If you don't rename the files does it then save ?

Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

I should have been a bit clearer. In the actual error message, the values in the curly braces did in fact reference the actual artist, album and track name. That was just my attempt to give you the generic form of the error message. So for example the filename part of the error message was formatted like so:

Z:\Shared Music\Library\Music\Nirvana\Nevermind\01 - Smells Like Teen Spirit.mp3 


But this same error occurred for each file SongKong tried to save before I stopped it.

java.io.IOException: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation 


Sorry for the confusion. Hope this makes things clearer.

Initially, I was getting different errors like:

Feb 29, 2016 12:42:30 AM:File Z:\Shared Music\iTunes Library\Music\The Vitamen\Fun\01 Molested.mp3 cannot be modified

Owner:S-1-5-21-834709840-3110349325-596344468-501
User or Group:S-1-5-21-834709840-3110349325-596344468-501 (Unknown):Allow:Write, Append, Read
User or Group:S-1-22-2-1000 (Unknown):Allow:Write, Append, Read
User or Group:\Everyone (Well-known group):Allow:Read
 


I was able to get these to stop by adjusting permissions on the NAS share for the folders where my files are currently organized. But then the 'Unable to save changes' errors started and seem to specifically have a problem with creating the new moved files in the target directory. And I'm stumped as to what the problem might be. I believe I have r & w permissions granted to owner, group & everybody on the directory in question, but still not working.

Thanks in advance for any insight you might have.

Also, as per your above suggestion, I attempted to run with the 'Rename files based on metadata' option unticked, and I also unticked 'Move to folder' in the 'File Moving' tab. Still getting the same errors when trying to save, just now occuring when attempting to save the updated file back in its original location. like so:

Feb 29, 2016 8:32:00 AM:Unable to save changes: Z:\Shared Music\iTunes Library\Music\Iron & Wine\Our Endless Numbered Days\02 Naked As We Came.mp3 java.io.IOException: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation 


Just doesn't seem like SongKong can write to the NAS for some reason. Again, to be clear, SongKong is running on Windows 10 (64 bit v). The files are on a network attached WD MyBook Live. "Z:" is mapped to the default public share on the drive.

Hi, try adding x permission on the folder, I think that is needed to create files within a directory, it would also help if you could email me your support files so then I can improve SongKong to preemptively complain about permissions problems before doing the save.

Run Help:Create Support Files, then email to support@jthink.net unless they are too large then you can upload them using something like dropbox

Still getting the "java.io.IOException: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation" error when SongKong tries to save files to my NAS share. Have granted rwx permissions across the board and still no luck. Any ideas?

Turns out it is actually due to an error in the Java JRE:https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8025619

But I have a workaround, please replace your version of jaudiotagger in your SongKong lib folder with one have uploaded to http://songkong.net/scratch/jaudiotagger-2.2.6-SNAPSHOT.jar
