Does anyone know of a USB thumb drive that will connect to a data store via wifi?

In other words...

I have a dvd player that shows photos off a USB thumb drive. I want to able to have the thumb drive connect via wifi to a share on a server instead of it's own memory.

Like this device but different.

Hot dog... I could just get a new apple tv for the price of that unit. But yes it would do the trick. – NitroxDM Dec 17 '10 at 7:00
Well, basically that's what I thought. Extending old technology using new technology invariably cost more than buying new items that does both. – bubu Dec 17 '10 at 7:26

You might be able to use one of those Eye-fi devices with one of these sd to usb adapters.

I haven't tried it myself so I don't know if it will work.

The Eye-fi device goes the wrong way. It would move data from it's memory to the server. – NitroxDM Dec 17 '10 at 6:55
