How can I determine how much storage remains on my USB drives connected to my WD media player?

Do I need to disconnect the USB drives and connect them to my PC?

If you have the Live connected to your network, you can check it from your computer like any other drive.

Do you have to mount it as a network drive?  Cuz Win7 has never given me the stats for the WDTV’s drives if I try to explore to them.

All I have to do in Windows 7 is click on the Orb, click on Computer, and the attached drive to the WD is listed under “Network Location.”  Network Drive WD.PNG Network Drive WD.PNG

Sorry, palavering… I was asking Coco… mine show up in Network too… I’ve just never seen what Coco describes.

When I explore them from Network, it doesn’t give capacity or remaining space for me.

Use Command Prompt in Windows (and mount the drive), then a simple “dir” will show you the surplus. Dunno why explorer won’t tell for certain drives.
