Copying Music and Photos Directly to the MMS
Category: Mirage Media Server
Products: Mirage Media Servers MMS-2, MMS-2A, MMS-5, MMS-5A
It is possible to manually copy music and photos directly from your computer to your MMS
without using either of the two methods mentioned previously.
In the case of music, we don’t recommend this approach unless you have a very specific reason
for doing it. Usually, the Mirage Media Sync is a better choice for copying music as it automatically
adds new content to the MMS as you add it to your library, and it helps to insure that your
MMS hard drive space is utilized in the most economical way by automatically eliminating
In the case of Photos, this method is the only way to add new pictures to your MMS.
Once the MMS is connected to your home network, you should see a shared network device in
Windows File Explorer (PC) or Finder (Mac).
Clicking on this device will reveal two folders: Music and Photos.
Valid music files supported by the MMS will be indexed and added to the library within a few
minutes after the entire file operation is complete. (The MMS waits until it seems as though
you are finished copying files to avoid thrashing the hard drive.)
If your MMS is connected to an external display, image files copied to the Photos directory will
be displayed during the photo slideshow screen saver on the MMS On-screen Display.
