Spent a lot of time trying to load a SMB drive, but no luck. Tried different user account, share names, nothing works. Next tried Astro SMB module, added Samba share IP address and folders show up immediately
Works great with windows 7 shares App took a tiny tiny bit of setup. First on PC I shared the folders I wanted. Then I fumbled around a bit before getting the andSMB to find the shares. But not bad to setup and works great!
Only download, no play from network. The purpose of servers is to serve files, so clients won't need to store them. AndSMB won't play any file directly from server, only download to the device, which defeats half of the purpose. Not useful. Uninstall.
Can't cut files from local device storage and paste to remote disk Looks nice, but basic things you just can't do. You can 'upload' to remote disk but it copies, it doesn't move. Absolute pain to use.
Minimal but efficient Quite basic but really quick to set up and get going. Media player could do with some basic improvements though, just to bring it up to the levels of at least the stock media player on the android device
Authentication always fails Every attempt to authenticate using the same server, user and password settings that work on the three PCs here fails. If this app actually worked, it would be useful. 2015.2.3: Even after update to new version, & some help from vendor, authentication still fails. 2015.2.5: Installed Antek Explorer & its SMB client, and it connects with no problems. Uninstalling AndSMB.
