Could i access the pro X100 internal HDD without using a network, an app or web-interface?
The way the system is built makes it very flexible & stable.
My network is slow & want to copy via the monitor - if possible?

You can run a "live USB" O/S at the back of the server & view the interface & files of the monitor with a mouse & keyboard plugin...
Most linux OS have a live option, just make sure you don't delete anything to mess up your folders :)
You may have to boot via the USB inserted with the live OS - use a keyboard (quite simple).

Most linux have a good portable O/S USB option that can run smoothly on the Cocktail Audio Pro X100.
Tried it with Linux Mint 64bit just to see, worked fine but plugged in a mouse & a keyboard to access & copy files.
Some portable OS have bootable options & compatibility mode if certain devices aren't detected upon booting.

I tried with fedora live portable boot USB, worked fine.
Copied some files across to the correct folders (between X100 & my external drive).
If you have a bigger screen make sure to move the mouse below or right-click to adjust the display.
Icons were nice, easy to use...
(Sorry about the image used a crap phone camera instead of a screen shot/print).

Mint works better via compatibility mode as the mouse & keybooard i used was old :)
Copied many albums from another drive onto the Pro X100.
Use f12 & select the option done. [Press any key, during the count down if you want an option]
Hope that helps. :)

Thank you all.
Tried it but couldn't see the icons (MINT) so i removed the USB & used the drive mounter on the web-interface.
What went wrong please?
Also how do i know the correct folders please?

The partitions will pop up as devices on a live access.
For example with mint:
1. Media/Mint
> Music/Pic/Movies
2. Some live access could be under devices ... /dev/dm2 or spaces with icons

Also try using the menu options if you can't see the icons or right-click the mouse for settings (compatibility mode).
Generally you would see the media space & your mounted external drive under devices or partitioned drives.
It is very easy & simple!
If you are get stuck, just post for some help :)
