I have a Samsung Blu-Ray player. I like using a USB thumb drive to play slide shows, music, and videos on the home entertainment system. However, regularly copying files to the thumb drive is annoying. Does anyone have any ideas on how to connect a Blu-ray player to the home network? I'm thinking specifically of using a USB wireless network adapter. Are there any configurable/hackable network adapters that will masquerade as thumb drive (at least as far as my Blu-ray player is concerned)? Are there any devices that would interface between the network adapter and the player that would do a similar thing?
Am I over-thinking this? Are there other ways of gaining access to the network from the Blu-Ray player?
(I have a BD-P1600, If that helps, but a general solution for any device that works with USB storage device would be preferred.)
