Dolphin Crashes when trying to use NAS as a "path"
What did you expect to happen instead?

I expected it to use that folder just as it would any other

What steps will reproduce the problem?
[Don't assume we have ever played the game and know any level names. Be as
specific as possible.]
1.
2.
3.

Dolphin 3.5 and 3.5-367 are old versions of Dolphin that have
known issues and bugs, so don't report issues about them and test the
latest Dolphin version first.
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?

4.02
Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)

windows 8.1 intel core 2 duo e8500 @3.16ghz 8mb ram radeon hd 4870

Provide more detail (especially on the NAS and what its full path shows up as in Windows's file manager) and try a current development build of Dolphin.

I've loaded games stored on another computer via AFP/Samba before on OS X. Obviously it's different under Windows with its not-dead-simple mounting mechanics, but still, if you give Dolphin a normal path it shouldn't explode. Maybe try right-click > Map Network Drive and set the thing up as G:\ or whatever other drive letter is free?

#2 Updated by KevinSinclair.email over 6 years ago

My nas is a wd mybook device, and I haven't mapped it/assigned it a drive letter, it shows up as a network device in windows file manager.

Would such a setup work with a developer build or does it have to be a mapped drive (which I would rather not do)?
