What would I need to do to convince an average desktop Linux computer (any flavour, let's say i686) to serve a folder as if it were a mass storage device over USB?
ie: I configure the desktop (with, I'm assuming, a USB Host device) and put my holiday snaps in
/mnt/fake_drive. I plug a suitable USB cable from my USB Host device into my TV's USB port. My TV recognises a Mass Storage device has been plugged in and starts reading the images on that device, which are actually being delivered by the desktop from
Is this possible?
(I should be clear, I'm aware I can share data over a network, I specifically want to fake a USB mass storage link)
