    I'm new here but hope I'm asking this in the right place.

    I have a DLNA network setup to my Samsung TV. This is done with the application "SAMSUNG PC Share manager" which comes with the TV. It works fine (as long as you have a LAN...).

    With that app you can share folders on your HD (C: disk). That's fine, I have some photos and mp3 on the internal HD. But my movies are on external USB-disks and the application does not allow me to share folders on external disks, it complains with an unrecognizable error msg.

    Has anyone succeed in sharing folders on external disks? I assume the Samsung application does not allow it, but are there any other applications out there? As far as I know, DLNA is supposed to be a standard so it may not be brand specific. Any input much appreciated, thanks!

    DLNA is supposed to be a standard, so you should not be limited to Samsung's software. Windows Media Player (as much as I personally loathe it) is liked by many for it's abilities when it comes to DLNA. This should remove the restrictions on available drives. Tversity is also well worth a look.

    Make sure when using wmp for network sharing you have your whole network set to "private network" so that the "media sharing" feature can be enabled. If its a "public network" it won't cooperate.

    I'm going to give WMP a chance then, had no idea about that... And I'll check the other app out as well. Thanks a lot!

    Just want to update this if anyone else reads it. Yes, WMP actually manages to share external disks on the DLNA network. Its weird interface and folder-handling gives me some headache, but at least it works! Thanks again

    I saw some posts on problems making TVersity work on Samsung. Does anyone know if this is a common problem or just people (like me) that cannot really setup the application well?
