if this is in the wrong spot, i apologize in advance.

anyway. my WD media live player wouldnt play my new 3TB hard drive.. so i took it back and exchanged it for a LG DP1W. it kept saying USB device not recognized.

so, i thought id connect it to my home network and see if i can play videos off my laptop.. it is connected and i chose my PC, but the first choice had no files the 2nd one said i needed to authorize this device to my computer

how do i go about this? i have already put in my password for the wireless network.. just need it to be able to read my computer

will this device be able to play videos off my external hard drive via my laptop or am i dreaming?
