    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

    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.
