Hi,
  I've read a few posts on this but I'm missing something obvious. I have a dedicated USB stick in USB1 that contains my WDTV setup (msheet, net.mounts, etc). On USB2 I have an adapter that connects to ethernet on my NAS (Thecus). I've tried creating the ".thumbdb" folder in /tmp/media/usb, however it does not populate. I also tried on the root of my NAS, but nothing is written. Do I have the wrong location, the guide said root of your attached drive ? Any help greatly appreciated.

thanks,
brill

Thanks Ron, I was just about to post it's working now. For anyone else interested, I simply created the .thumbDB in :

/tmp/media/usb/USB1/.thumbDB/

Working great now  :)
