What is a USB Wi-Fi dongle device that can emulate a virtual mass storage device for home video player, but in fact it shows the files from a network-shared enter code here folder?

Could you describe why you want to do this? – digitxp Aug 28 '10 at 20:54
I have home video and photo files on my PC in shared folders. I have TV that can play video and photo from USB stick. So I want some device that will be recognized by TV as usual mass storage device, but in fact that will emulate virtual mass storage that consists of the files from shared network folder. – bender Aug 29 '10 at 5:44

IGRS Linksee USB 2.0 802.11g WiFi Wireless Remote Mass Storage Dongle also seems to achieve what you are after. Unfortunately, I have not yet seen a solution that is platform independent.
