Not sure which is the correct forum for this as it spans multiple pieces of equipment, but I will start here.  I am looking to store all my media on a network drive.  Here is the set up I would like to use.  A WD Myclould 2TB WDBCTL0020HWT connected to my router and 1 or more WD Mybook 4TB WDBFJK0040HBK USB drives connected through usb hub.  My questions are can the built in WD DLC software stream to PS3 and Sony Bluray players and if so how will that software handle the other drives connected to the Myclould drive?

The PS3 supports DLNA on the MyCloud drive (I believe that is what you meant by DLC), the Sony Bluray player will depend on the model. The WD Mybook  does not have DLNA or the twonky media server from Western Digital. If your Router supports DLNA or has media server software then you could stream from your WD Mybook.

I am refering to the USB port on the back of the MyCloud.  could the MyClouds media server read the MyBook from its USB port?

Then It Should, According to Western Digital You can Expand the storage by plugging a "Compatible USB 3.0" drive in the USB port. It does not say what is or is not Compatible.  :unsure:

correct thats my problem, just trying to be sure the media center portion of it will recognize and access the other drive.  Was hoping to verify before spending the money but may have to try and see.

I would think it will work, the WD Mybook doesn't have anything special.
