by jcdavies / February 23, 2013 6:15 AM PST


Been a while since i have been here but you guys have always been so helpful in the past.

I have a Asus RT-N56U Router and have a Western Digital HD plugged in to it. On my Mac I have no issues in using the drive however on my Windows 7 machine I can only find the drive thru my network connections and it only lets me open the drive through windows media player.

How can i get it so i can access it as a normal folder

thanks for your help
