[Network/Transfer] How Access to Your Zappiti From a Computer or OPPO via Local Network

Unlike the Zappiti Player 4K, you no longer need to use Zappiti Transfer to transfer your files to the Zappiti player from a computer through the local network.

NEW PROCEDURE (since Firmware 3.06)


Since firmware v3.06 Zappiti 4K HDR media players offer an SMB server function with automatic detection on the network. This allows you to access the contents of the hard drives connected to your Zappiti drive from a computer or Blu-ray drive compatible with SMB such as the OPPO brand drives.

During the first scan, you will be prompted for a username and password. Leave the fields blank and validate.

Computer (MAC / PC / LINUX)
In the network explorer on your computer, you should see your Zappiti media player as ZAPPITIHDR (or OPENWRT). Here's what it looks using Windows 10:
 
You can "copy-paste" or "drag-and-drop" your files to transfer them from your computer to the Zappiti 4K HDR and vice versa. The SMB throughput on the Zappiti 4K HDR is extremely fast: up to 115 MB/s, so the same throughput as USB 3.0.

Aleternative solution to access your Zappiti from a PC:
1. On your PC, launch the Windows Explorer (WINDOWS + "E" key).
2. In the path (URL) field, please type \\ZAPPITIHDR (ZAPPITIHDR preceded by a double anti-slash ("ALT GR '+' 8 'key on the Windows keyboard)), then validate by pressing ENTER key on your keyboard. After a few seconds you will see the hard disks displayed in the Windows Explorer. You can then associate a network letter to the shared folder (Disk_sda1 or Disk_sda1) by right-clicking on the shared folder, then "Connect a network drive".
 

Alternative procedure with the IP address of your player.
1. Turn on your Zappiti.
2. On the home page, click the "SETTINGS" button at the top left.
3. Click "Ethernet Configuration".
4. In the Ethernet control panel, locate the IP address (for example, 192.168.1.88) and write it down on a paper.
5. On your PC, launch the Windows Explorer (WINDOWS + "E" key).
6. In the path field (URL), please enter the IP address of your Zappiti 4K HDR, preceded by a double anti-slash ("ALT GR '+' 8 'key on the Windows keyboard), then confirm by pressing the ENTER key on your keyboard.
  
WARNING! It is imperative to put both backslashes "\\" (backslashes) before the IP address.

After a few seconds you will see the hard disks connected to your Zappiti displayed in the Windows Explorer. 


OPPO Blu-ray / UHD Players

On OPPO drives, you should see your Zappiti media player as: ZAPPITIHDR (or OPENWRT) preceded by an SMB icon.



Note: If you previously have updated your media player via OTA (BLUE button on the Zappiti 4K HDR remote), your player will be detected as OPENWRT. If you have updated your media player via a USB stick via the RESTORE procedure, your Zappiti 4K HDR will be identified on the network as ZAPPITIHDR as shown in the examples above.

Warning! Some connected TVs do not have an SMB network drive. In this case, you can access your Zappiti 4K HDR via DLNA using the MiniDLNA function of the player (OPENWRT).

OLD PROCEDURE (firmware 3.05)


First at all, you have to collect the IP address of your Zappiti player.

How to find the IP address of your Zappiti 4K HDR:
1. Switch ON your Zappiti player.
2. On the Home Page, please click on the SETTINGS button located on the top left of the screen.
3. Click on "Ethernet Configuration".
4. In the "Ethernet Configuration" panel, locate the IP address (for example: 192.168.1.88) then write it down on a paper.  

Windows Procedure


How to access to the content of a local hard drive connected to the Zappiti 4K HDR from a PC:

3. After a few seconds you will be abble to see the hard disks displayed in the Windows Explorer.

  

Alternative procedure:

If you have only one hard drive permanently connected to the Zappiti drive, you can also use the following method:

Mounting a network folder:
  1. On your PC, launch the Windows Explorer (WINDOWS + "E" key).
  2. Locate the "Network" icon. Right-click on it and click on the "Connect network drive" option.
  3. In the input field, type the IP address of your Zappiti 4K HDR media player with a double anti-slash ("ALT GR"+"8" key on the Windows keyboard), then add an anti-slash and Enter the name of the hard drive as it appears in the Zappiti, for example:
    \\192.168.1.4\Disk_sda1

MAC Procedure


How to access to the content of a local hard drive connected to the Zappiti 4K HDR from a MAC:
 
1. Switch ON your MAC.

2. In the top bar, click on the menu "Go" menu and then click on "Connect to server ...".

3. In the Server Connection window, enter the IP address of your Zappiti drive. Then click "Log In".


4. In the next window, select the "Guest" option, then click "Sign In" and wait. 

Warning! The connection may not succeed. Feel free to repeat the operation several times until the Mac can connect.  
 
5. You will see the hard drive (s) connected to the Zappiti 4K HDR. Select the volume (s) you want to mount on your MAC, and then click OK.


6. The hard drives will then appear on the desktop of your MAC and you can then drag and drop files on it to transfer the files from your MAC to the hard drives connected to your Zappiti player.

WARNING! If you set the Zappiti player ethernet in Dynamic IP Address (DHCP), if the IP address of the drive changes, hard drives will no longer be accessible from the MAC. It will be necessary to restart the configuration of the MAC.
