    Go to the plastered and install samba fileshare . The ones I saw now after a quick glance look old but I guess it will still work

    If you have a PC in the mix you are doing it wrong.

    Plug drive into PC.

    Copy all your stuff onto it.

    Install Plex Media Server.

    Go to Media Box and install Plex Client.

    Boom.
