By using network drive connection, you can playback video, photo, and music files on your PC connected to your home network. It's not necessary to setup special software on your PC or to copy the files from the PC to the other external devices, e.g. USB memory.
Supported contents are as follows,
|Video||mkv, DivX (only Canada model)|
|Photo||JPEG, MPO (3D Photo)|
To use network drive connection, you need to set up shared folder on your PC which has the files you want to playback from BD Player.
You can see the detailed information in the following page.
Windows XP : File sharing
Windows Vista : Share files with someone
Windows 7 : Share files with someone
Ensure that the router for your home network has adequate security system to prevent unauthorized access before enabling shared folder.
When you access to the shared folder on your PC, you need to know IP address of your PC.
You can find it in the following procedure.
Windows Vista : Find your computer's IP address
Windows 7: Find your computer's IP address
After enabling network drive as above, you can access a network drive by the following procedure.

Your network band width may not be wide enough to play high bitrate contents, e.g.HD video files.
The Performance of playback through network drive connection depends on your network condition or PC side performance.
If the problem is only momentarily, it may be improved by restarting BD Player.
If the target shared folder contains so many files and folders, it may take some time to launch application. Please check the structure of your shared folder.
Launch time may be shortened if you can separate the shared folder into some independent shared folder.
Folder name or file name may contain non-ASCII characters. Please use ASCII characters for folder or file name you want to access through Network Drive Connection.
