I've recently purchased a Samsung BDF5100UX Blu-ray player because I needed something to replace an ageing Pioneer DVD player. I have a separate media player on my home network connected to a USB drive for storing ripped discs, mp3 etc.
At the moment I log in to the media box over the network & ftp files directly to its USB drive for storage/playback (I like this option better than streaming stuff over the network).
The original thought behind the Samsung was just for a cheap box to play DVDs on occasionally, but I notice it also has network connectivity and a USB port, so I'm thinking I could maybe do away with my existing media player & just use the Samsung, which would be nice.
My question is this. Is there a way to access the file system on a USB drive attached to the Samsung remotely over the network?
If I could copy files to & from the USB drive via the Samsung's (wired) network connection then I'd have no need for my other media player. But having to keep disconnecting the USB drive & attach it to another machine just to take files on & off it would be a royal PITA (and I'd stick with my existing solution).
Hope I've explained all that clearly enough. Hopefully some boffin out there in th'internet land has already cracked how to do this. I'm thinking it should be possible via ftp or whatever(?) If not, then Samsung have missed a trick IMO.
