I bought a Maxtor Network Storage device this weekend; a 10/100bT interface, 300MB, 7200RPM, 16MB Cache. I'm able to play MP3's without any noticed problem so far, but video is a different thing. When I try to play an mpg, I have a prolonged "Please Wait" in the center of my screen, and then a broken image icon replaces it and the lower left of my screen says "Unable to play filename.mpg". The same video files, when located on a PC's mounted drive, play fine.
Anyone have experience with this NAS? Should I try networking it directly to the Roku with a crossover cable?
