Nas Server with USB connectivity to PC

I'm looking for a NAS Server (with 2 SATA bays or more) that, besides its ethernet connection, may also connect to the PC via USB (as a mass storage device).

Most NAS server have usb connection but only to add more devices to its storage capacity.

Why you may ask... I want to use it as a NAS server, connected to my house network, but also directly to my LED TV (which has media player software and a USB port for mass storage such as pen drives or ext.drives and, hopefully, this NAS server).

Can you help me?
Thanks in advance

  1. There is no prebuilt NAS device that I've seen that uses USB for anything other than storage expansion.
  2. I am with Chunky, I haven't seen such a NAS. Most NAS 'OSes' might not show the device as a mass storage device, but actually, look for other mass storage devices.
  3. Actually this one might do the trick.. It has a 500GB(max) dedicated folder for USB access.. It's a pitty it doesn't allow full access to all the storage in the NAS..

  4. I think the WorldBook's from Western Digital can do this too.
