I spend the last 30 minutes searching, and i can't find a concrete answer.
Can i play movies from an external USB hard drive? I realize that it will show up as just a large memory card, but still, i want to know if that's possible.

Thanks

P.S. I really miss the old search

nope, even if you had everything right, usb 1.1 is too slow

just plug it in to a computer nearby and share it

I stream video over my network, but I also play back from a usb 1GB USB thumb drive with no problems. It shows op in XMBC - VIDEOS as a FAT32 memory device. I just plugged a 3.2 GB USB hard drive, and although it shows up as a memory device, and I can access it and see the files on it, I can not play a movie from it.

Any ideas?? uhh.gif
