    I thought i saw this a few years ago, about someone that did this to their divx player.

    Is there a way for a device say google tv or a divx player that has a usb slot that is meant for usb hard drives/media to share a network location as if it were were on a usb hard drive?

    I thought some guy took WAP, loaded some software on it that allowed network shares to appear locally and then connected the WAP with a usb cable to the device, just wondering if there was something commercially available that does this?
