xmount Notes

To see NFS/CIFS/XFS/ReiserFS/NDAS devices, you must either:

  • have a supported drive/flashdisk plugged in for xmounts to appear
  • xmounts show up in Local Drives -> All Folders only!

OR


net.mounts file is where you can place NFS/CIFS/ftp/ssh shares that you would like loaded at boot. net.mounts must either be on a drive at boot or in /conf to be used, every boot.


Samba Notes

If you'd like to customize Samba options you may include your own custom smb.conf. Include smb.conf (smbpasswd goes in /conf/smbpasswd) at the root of an attached device, then power cycle and it will be loaded.

Install Instructions

Copy to usb key formated to FAT/FAT32 (use standard windows format) or under linux mkfs.vfat

Don't use NFTS its better to use better supported well known FS like FAT

Vista is using exFAT also PE2USB is able format USBkey to FAT16/FAT32

if new firmware is not recognized change wdtv/wdtvhd/wdtvlive/wdtvlive2 bin to higher release in the wdtv/wdtvhd/wdtvlive/wdtvlive2 .ver file
