    Hi
    I have an XBox 360 and I also have a LinkStation NAS drive on my network, I want to put my music onto the NAS drive but the XBox 360 cannot see it? Is there anything that can be done, if not what type of NAS do I need as I know that some people on forums have said that it can be done?:rolleyes:

    I do think that you would need to be using the Media Center Extender and have the NAS added to the folders list in a Media Center PC if you have one.

    Thats right if you have just a standalone NAS drive your 360 wont see it.

    I have a Maxtor Shared Storage II 1tb edition and that has Twonkymedia installed on the device, this way the 360 recognises it and will play all my music and videos. I did this by putting a special firmware on my device.

    Check on twonkymedias website to see if your nas drive is compatible. :smashin:

    I have just seen the above post also, even if you add the folders the 360 wont see them.

    I have just been trying to install this on my Maxtor Shared Drive plus but I keep getting an error message saying

    Open a telnet connection failed, please check IP address of MSS

    The address is correct, the anti virus and firewall is turned off.

    Anybody else had this problem?

    EDIT: Sorted it now, not sure what was going wrong but a restart of the computer, router and MSS seemed to do the trick!

    I have a Linkstation on my network and using Tversity I can watch video and listen to music from the NAS box through the Xbox 360.
