Wireless backup to hard drive ?

Hi all

I have lots of home movies, pictures etc and I'm getting a little bogged down by the DVD's I burn to view them on my tv.

I've decided to buy a WD media player connected to a dedicated HD but I wondered if there was a way of connecting the HD to my PC wirelessly (they will be in different rooms). I have a wireless network setup, so is it as simple as adding a USB wireless dongle to the HD?

Any advice greatly appreciated

Use a NAT hdd directly plugged into the router click here-(With-Hard-Drive) for examples.
Can be accessed by wireless and wired computersso you can modify it with your main computer and play back with the media centre without disturbing any connections.
You can also tuck it away out of sight.
Versions where you install your own hdd are also available click here-(Without-Hard-Drive)
