If you attach the drive to your PC and set up the appropriate domain/workgroup with the necessary sharing permissions, it should be possible to 'see' the drive from any connected device, including your Samsung TV.

ßeta: I think Samsung has a version of that called Link (previously Allshare). It's downloadable e.g. here.

ßeta: oh, has it? But are Samsung Smart TVs DNLA compatible I'd always assumed not, which is why they came up with their own version.

Oh, interesting...

It's a pity you can't edit your own posts on here... But anyway: I just saw Allshare described as "DLNA on steroids" - it is DLNA-compatible, and thus will work with all other DLNA-certified devices.

In theory.
