 my WD 1tb external drive is shared on the network my network name is WORKGROUP, the wdtv will read it when it is directly plugged into usb on the wdtv. the wdtv will read my wd 160gb over the network is their a configuration issue that i am missing. i am running vista 32bit and running it trough a linksys G router, the wdtv is connected with linksys WUSB600N usb adapter

Yeah it does. I have a 1.5 TB drive hooked up via USB to my PC, which is mounted on the WDTV Live using CIFS. I can play 1080p video no issues.
