DETAILED DESCRIPTION In order to make the objectives, technical solutions and advantages of the present disclosure more apparent, embodiments of the present disclosure will be described in further details with reference to the accompanying drawings. Obviously, based on the embodiments of the present disclosure, other embodiments derived by a person skilled in the art without any creative labor are all within the protective scope of the present disclosure. Before the description of the method for sharing data in a DLNA device provided by the present disclosure, the DLNA device related to the present disclosure will be described. The DLNA device may be a smart router, which includes an independent operating system in addition to router functions in an ordinary router, and may allow users to install various applications, and also has a powerful USB (Universal Serial Bus) sharing function. A DLNA server runs on the DLNA device. In other words, the DLNA server is configured or provided in the DLNA device. The DLNA server is an application with the type being server type, and is configured to implement the sharing of media contents such as pictures, music, videos and the like. The DLNA server runs on an operating system, which may be a fully customized operating system based on OpenWrt. The DLNA device may also include a storage medium such as a hard disk, which is configured to store data such as pictures, music and videos. In addition, the DLNA device also includes a USB interface, which may support access of a removable storage device such as a U disk, a removable hard disk and the like. FIG. 1 is a flow chart illustrating a method for sharing data in the DLNA device according to an exemplary embodiment. This embodiment will be illustrated by taking an example that the method for sharing data is applied to a DLNA device provided with a DLNA server. The method for sharing data may include the following steps. In step 102 , an event of a removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device is monitored. In step 104 , a mount path of the removable storage device is acquired through the DLNA server when the event of the removable device being plugged into the DLNA device has occurred. In step 106 , data in the removable storage device are shared according to the mount path through the DLNA server. Accordingly, in the method for sharing data provided by this embodiment, after the event of the removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device is monitored by the DLNA device, the DLNA server acquires the mount path of the removable storage device when the event of the removable device being plugged into the DLNA device has occurred, and the DLNA server shares the data in the removable storage device according to the mount path. Thus, the problem in the related art that the DLNA server cannot share the media contents in the removable storage device is solved. Compared with the technical solution in the related art, in this embodiment, the DLNA server acquires the mount path of the removable storage device, then scans and acquires the data in the removable storage device according to the mount path, and then shares the data in the removable storage device with the DLNA client, so that the data in the removable storage device is shared in the DLNA system and the sharing capability of the DLNA system may be significantly improved. FIG. 2 is a flow chart illustrating a method for sharing data in a DLNA device according to another exemplary embodiment. This embodiment will be illustrated by applying the method for sharing data to the DLNA device provided with a DLNA server. The method for sharing data may include the following steps. In step 201 , an event of a removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device is monitored. The DLNA device monitors the event of the removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device. A hot swap event is generated when the removable storage device such as a U disk, a removable hard disk and the like is plugged in or unplugged from the DLNA device, and may be acquired by an operating system of the DLNA device. In step 202 , a preset script is called when the event of the removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device has occurred. When the hot swap event is detected by the operating system of the DLNA device, the preset script is called. The preset script is a script file implanted in the DLNA device in advance, which functions to cause the DLNA server to acquire a mount path of the removable storage device and further to scan and obtain data in the removable storage device according to the mount path. In step 203 , the mount path of the removable storage device is added to a configuration file of the DLNA server through the preset script. The DLNA device adds the mount path of the removable storage device to the configuration file of the DLNA server through the preset script. The configuration file is configured to record a sharing path of data, which is sharable to the DLNA server. The sharing path refers to a storage path, in which the DLNA server sharable data is stored in a storage medium, such as media dir=/userdisk/data. The DLNA server may only share with the DLNA client data which corresponds to the sharing path recorded in the configuration file. In other words, although data is stored in the storage medium of the DLNA device, however, the data cannot be shared by the DLNA sever, if the storage path of the data is not written in the configuration file. One or more sharing paths may be recorded in the configuration file. In this embodiment, after the mount path of the removable storage device is added to the configuration file through the preset script, the mount path is transferred into the sharing path, so that the sharing of the data in the removable storage device may be performed by the DLNA server in the subsequent steps. In step 204 , the DLNA server is triggered by the preset script to read the configuration file to obtain a sharing path, which includes the mount path of the removable storage device. The DLNA device triggers the DLNA server through the preset script to read the configuration file to obtain the sharing path. The sharing path includes the mount path of the removable storage device. This step may include the following sub steps. Firstly, a preset signal is transmitted to the DLNA server through the preset script. After the mount path of the removable storage device is added to the configuration file of the DLNA server through the preset script, the preset script transmits the preset signal to the DLNA server. The preset signal is a signal configured to trigger the DLNA server to reload the configuration file. For example, the preset script may call a preset function through an inter-process communication mechanism provided by the operating system, so as to transmit the preset signal to the DLNA server. Secondly, the configuration file is reloaded through the DLNA server after the DLNA server receives the preset signal. After the DLNA server receives the preset signal, the configuration file is reloaded, such that the mount path of the removable storage device added in the configuration file may be refreshed and acquired. Thirdly, the sharing path is obtained by reading the configuration file through the DLNA server. The DLNA server reads the configuration file to obtain the sharing path, after reloading the configuration file. The sharing path includes the mount path of the removable storage device added to the configuration file through the preset script. In step 205 , the data in the removable storage device is shared through the DLNA server according to the mount path. The DLNA device shares the data in the removable storage device according to the mount path through the DLNA server. After obtaining the mount path added to the configuration file, the DLNA server scans and acquires files such as pictures, music and videos under a directory corresponding to the mount path according to the mount path, and shares the files with the DLNA client. It should be noted that after receiving the preset signal transmitted by the preset script, the DLNA server may also perform a step of closing a file system monitoring mechanism for a predetermined period. The file system monitoring mechanism is configured to monitor files in the DLNA server which includes monitoring of accessing, reading, writing, modifying, deleting, creating or renaming, etc., and to provide feedback to the DLNA server. A start time of the predetermined period is an instant when the DLNA server receives the preset signal, and an end time of the predetermined period is an instant when the DLNA server reads the configuration file to obtain the sharing path. Through closing the file system monitoring mechanism for a while during the above mentioned predetermined period, a system overhead may be reduced, and feedback notification may be prevented from being repeatedly transmitted to the DLNA server by the internal core since the files are accessed, read and written and the like during a process that the DLNA server scans and acquires the files in the removable storage device. It should be further noted that after the above step 205 , the method may include the following steps. Firstly, an event of the removable storage device being unplugged from the DLNA device is monitored. The DLNA device monitors the event of the removable storage device being unplugged from the DLNA device. When the removable storage device is unplugged from the DLNA device, a hot swap event will be generated and thus may be acquired by the operating system. Secondly, the preset script is called when the event of the removable storage device being unplugged from the DLNA device has occurred. Similarly to the case when the event of the removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device has occurred, when the event of the removable storage device being unplugged from the DLNA device is monitored and detected by the DLNA device, the preset script is called. Thirdly, the mount path of the removable storage device is removed from the configuration file through the preset script. The DLNA device removes the mount path of the removable storage device from the configuration file through the preset script. It is avoided that the DLNA server still tends to obtain a mount path by reading the configuration file and fails to scan and acquire the file corresponding to the mount path in a case that the removable storage device has been unplugged from the DLNA device. Fourthly, the DLNA server is triggered through the preset script to read the configuration file to obtain the sharing path. In this case, the sharing path does not include the mount path of the removable storage device. After the mount path of the removable storage device is removed from the configuration file through the preset script, the DLNA device still transmits a preset signal to the DLNA server through the preset script, such that the DLNA server reloads the configuration file after receiving the preset signal. Therefore, the refreshed configuration file will not record the mount path of the removable storage device. The DLNA server may obtain other sharing paths in the configuration file, and share files corresponding to the other sharing paths. Accordingly, in the method for sharing data in the DLNA device provided by this embodiment, after the event of the removable storage device being plugged into the DLNA device is monitored by the DLNA device, the mount path of the removable storage device is acquired through the DLNA server and the data in the removable storage device is shared according to the mount path through the DLNA server. Thus, the problem in the related art that the DLNA server cannot share the media contents in the removable storage device is solved. Compared with the technical solution in the related art, in this embodiment, the DLNA server acquires the mount path of the removable storage device, then scans and acquires the data in the removable storage device according to the mount path, and then shares the data removable storage device, so that the data in the removable storage device is shared in the DLNA system and the sharing capability of the DLNA system may be significantly improved. In addition, in this embodiment, the mount path of the removable storage device is written into the configuration file of the DLNA server through the preset script, so that the DLNA server may easily acquire the mount path in the configuration file, and thus the sharing of the data in the removable storage device may be realized, and the method is simple and easy to be implemented.
