WD TV HD Media Player and Wireless NAS

Hi,

I was wondering if it was possible to hook up WD TV HD Media Player (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?DriveID=572) and Wireless NAS (http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=377).

I want to set it up so that WD TV player will recognize files stored in NAS. I selected wireless so that I can upload files to NAS wireless.

I would hook them up using USB cable Male-Male.

You think it'll work?

  1. Won't work. The WD Media player only uses USB drives as a source, not network drives. The wireless NAS only has network connections to PC's, no USB for connecting anything except for USB hard drives. You'll probably need to use a network media player like the D-Link DSM 320 instead of the WD HD Media Player in order to do what you want to do.
  2. In fact, there's an unofficial firmware which allows wireless connections using certain usb wireless adapters:
