Can I access my music library with my computer off?


Many people find it inconvenient and prefer not to leave their computer on and ask if they can access their music library with the computer off. The answer is no. To access your music library, whether stored in I-Tunes or Windows Media, the computer must be turned on and the Sharing feature enabled. However there is an alternative. You can add a NAS (network storage device) Drive to your home network. The NAS drive connects to your router and is always on. Once you have added a NAS drive to your home network, transfer your music library to the NAS Drive. Next, add the NAS drive to your Bose app. To do this, from the Soundtouch app menu, select “Add Service” and choose “NAS Drive”. Choose your Library and you should be ready to go. For best results with your SoundTouch® system, WD MyCloud or Synology NAS drives are recommended. However, many other NAS drives will also work. (Please note: SoundTouch® systems are not fully DLNA compliant and may or may not have full functionality with other models.)
