Access to HDD through my laptop

it might be a bit of a basic question…I apologize in advance if it’s not advanced enough for advanced experienced users. I just want to know if there is a way I can use my laptop to access the HDD connected to my WD TV Live. Is it possible to stream files from it? add files etc…?

forgot to mention that I’m using a Windows 8 Pro system…

Hi and welcome to the WD community.

It is possible to access the hard drive connected to the WD TV. The unit should come up in the network section of the operating system and be accessible as a share computer on the network.

You can use this to see the HDD and map it as well.
