I have a cisco e4200 router that exposes my media library as windows file shares. Is it possible to access them from my Chromebox?
I don't believe that Chromebooks have any native file sharing capabilities. The best way would be to use a NAS with a web-based interface that will allow you to transfer files, or use a cloud service. There are also utilities that will allow you to set up a windows or mac to offer web-based file sharing.
