Google shared drive

    To clarify, the shared Folder belongs to a Team Drive account? That would explain the problem as Team Drive is not yet fully supported. Shared folders do work when they are shared by regular Google Drive accounts. We are still looking into adding full support for Team Drives in a future update. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for the reply. To clarify about the shared drive, I don't know whether my alum account is formally branded as a Team Drive or if Google has other organizational products that don't carry that name & set of rules. I have had the account for years, but I never heard of Google Teams until this week when reading the CloudPlayer support site. What I do know for sure is that mine's through "G Suite for Education". While technically part of an organization, it isn't a "Team"-style collaborative workspace and in most ways it operates exactly like an individual account, at least on the user side. Do the same back-end limitations of CloudPlayer compatibility with Teams (which to me implies commercial use) apply to GSE as well?

    Google's branding is very confusing. Team Drive is a feature of G-Suite. Though I think they might have recently renamed "Team Drive" to "Shared Drive".

    Ha, yes it is. And that sounds about right. Well, I shall look forward to future updates that might include Teams (by whatever name) support. Thanks again!
