Hi,

I have been streaming media to my PS3 via Nero Media Home 4 (NMH4), files are stored on my laptops hard drive which is where my issue lies. The laptop hard drive is only 80 Gig, only 7 Gig is available free space, in light of this I have bought a 250 Gig external USB hard drive to store all my media files.

I have no issues with setup or streaming of media files that are stored on the laptop hard drive so I am rasonably satisfied that the software is set up correctly. However, I have trouble when attempting to share the media files on the external drive via NMH4, the PS3/NMH4/Laptop doesn't like streaming the files from this drive.

Currently, my only workaround is to copy the file that I would like to stream onto the laptop from the external drive, stream the file, then delete, which is time consuming and a bit of a pain. Can anyone help with this please?

Thanks,
Valleyboy

I would simply have bought a larger hard drive for laptop...and cloned the old one to the new drive...and been much happier.

You can still do so.
