All of my photos and videos are on Network Attached Storage with backups, redundancy etc.

 

I am trying to make an import preset that takes Videos off of an SD card, and copies them to the network folder.   \\HomeServer\Video

 

Yet, when I attempt to import, this network location does not show up as a destination.  There's no way for me to add it. 

 

I only see local drives an mapped drive letters.

 

The problem is that if i map a drive (example V:\ to \\HomeServer\Video) then all of the videos open under a new folder name inside lightroom instead of the \\HomeServer\Video folder.

 

How can I get my imports to go right to  V:\ to \\HomeServer\Video without having a folder called V:\

Hitting the little "+" at the top of this dialog doesn't seem to do anything.

I think anything that acts as a separate storage volume more or less has to show up as a separate 'heading' so that LrC can for example show a connection status etc. The only way around this that I can see, might be a symbolic link or alias which makes the chosen content from this separate volume appear (to the computer in general, not just so far as LrC) as if it was physically within another storage volume: one that you are already showing inside LrC.
