In my home, I have a network attached storage (NAS) drive on my network. I have all of my music and video stored on it. It was originally installed to support my SONOS. The files that are on it were copied from a Windows system. I would like to be able to access those files from my Mac.

How can I map that drive to my Mac?

Will I be able to read the file once mapped?

If it isn't FAT32, you need to take all the data off of it, reformat it to FAT, and then replace the data.
