    Need help in finding out how to use and manage USB drive to a patched ATV. I can see the USB drive but do not know how to move files fro ATV main drive to USB drive. As main ATV drive is under control of iTune setup in my laptop. Then I can move photos, music and videops to USB drive and release my Macbook drive space, while being able to access the stored files in ATV's USB drive. Thanks in advance.

    Because the moderators may not see the spam posted in your thread otherwise.

    To answer your question, you need to understand how the USB drive is mounted on the ATV. Then it's a simple matter of using the cp command to copy them. Note you'll want to have basic skills in a Unix terminal to do this.

    So it's clear... I didn't send the spam. I reported the spam. To the moderators.
