Does that mean copying from one network share to another network share through your windows PC?

I am using a Windows PC in the same network to initiate the copying process. But the USB disk drive is directly connected to the Dahpile PC.

USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. Big difference !

IIUC your data flow daphile HDD -> wrapping in daphile samba -> network -> windows -> unwrapping in windows SMB/CIFS client -> wrapping in SMB/CIFS client for the USB network share -> network -> unwrapping in daphile samba -> copying to USB.

What is your ethernet speed? Or even wifi?

Ethernet and Wi-Fi speeds are fast enough, but the whole chain you describe make it pretty slow.
(Windows PC uses Wi-Fi and Daphile PC is connected over Ethernet using the same router).
Also writing music from a Windows PC to Daphile PC is slow (2Mb/sec.).

Are they? 2MB/s = 16 Mbps + SMB huge overhead (protocol, encryption) + long unpredictable latency of wifi. People regularly report < 1MB/s samba speed over wifi. Perhaps samba params in daphile could be tweaked to improve the throughput - google offers lots of help. But again - no ssh access, read-only filesystem on daphile...

I tried to copy the music collection using a HD docking. So I took the HD out of the Daphile PC and connected it, using a HD docking, to a Windows PC, but then Windows asks to format the HD because the Ext 4 filesystem is not recognized.

Well, complain to the company you paid your money to - Microsoft. Ext4 is pretty old.

3 Ways to Access Your Linux Partitions From Windows

Or reformat your external HDD with NTFS which linux supports. Look at https://www.daphile.com/download/FAQ.txt Q12 .

Download and write to bootable media (USB stick or DVD ) an Ubuntu live o/s...(18.04) (Etcher ... Etcher )
Boot your windows pc from that and copy files to docked Daphile drive.

BBC HLS stream problems.
Hello can anyone help with a bbc HLS stream problem. I have tried Daphiles from 14 to the latest 18.07 but cant get the hls stream. If I do it sounds like very loud white noise with bbc almost inaudible.
I have enabled plugins bbc iplayer and play hls, but still no luck. I am using a variety of old pcs and laptops but doesn't help. My dual core system does work but that has the same 18.07 on. I have a choice of streams to listen to.
Has anyone any ideas.
Thanks
