      Network media PS3

      Ive just managed to get wmp11 on my laptop to stream media to my PS3 (long story cut short, could not find media server on PS3) and now im looking to transfer my dvd and cd collection to some sort of external hard drive that I can also store downloads on.

      Ive come up with two solutions
      1- Network hard drive
      2- External hard drive

      All I want to do is set it up and not have to worry about connecting and reconecting it when I need to use it.

      Will wmp11 be able to open media form the network hard drive and stream it to the PS3? Or even better could the PS3 access the media straight from the hard drive and play it?.
      If it can this would be my first choice, If not then a external hard drive, that way I could just connect it between the laptop and the PS3 when needed.

      I went for a NAS drive with itunes server built in and hooked it up to my router. The NAS then serves the PS3 with all my music and vids without any PC being on.
