Basically my question here is,
Can this be used like a traditional external hard drive?
Is it possible to connect the WD MyCLoud directly to a media player (that cant connect to network) to then play the media files on to a tv? (with no smart features)
i have tried a few times, got it hooked up through USB, but the media play just seems to not reconise the hard drive.
Just gives off a white solid light or blinking white, not the solid blue light when its hocked up through wifi.
