XBMC and NAS question

I've finally got XBMC up and running on my ATV2. I have a Western Digital My Book Live.

I cannot get XBMC to see the WD drive. Everything works fine through iTunes but I thought XBMC can see these drives. I'm sure i'm doing something wrong.

Any assistance appreciated

More Macs than I can count, really. Like 20 or so...

How is your WD connected?

In general - just add a new source to the movies folders. When doing that, indicate that that's a neywork location, specify the IP adress (make sure it's static for WD) and select a folder on the WD once connected. Was absolutely straight forward on my ShareSpace.
