You can configure your LaCie NAS to share files (read-only) with UPnP/DLNA devices connected to the same network. Follow these steps:
To take an inventory of available multimedia files, you can Reindex your LaCie NAS and all connected desktop-attached storage (DAS).
Start a Reindex as described above if files seem missing on your multimedia share(s) or connected devices.
The time for indexing to complete depends upon the total capacity of your storage and the size of your multimedia library. If you have created many shares on your NAS, reindexing can tax the CPU's resources. Before starting the Reindex, consider shutting off multimedia support for shares that do not store media files. See General Settings and Shares for further information on how to manage services.
Your LaCie NAS can act as an iTunes Music server. Simply copy your iTunes library to a share on your LaCie NAS and audio files will be available to compatible devices on the network.
