    I can do that, and that is what buzzes me. Is there a way to map the harddisk just as in "My computer" in windows from the Wii?

    No, there is not. Anyway, you need to know the path of the network drive, and username and password if there are any. You can enter this in Wiimc, under network share. I think you can find the path of the drive under properties, but I am not sure.

    I've tried that already with no effect. I've changed the conf. file in the apps folder etc.

    Pardon me if I missed the answer to this earlier in the thread - You mentioned that you can ping the NAS device, meaning it does have an IP address, and you can see it/use it. But, have you explicitly defined a static IP address to it (via 'reserve IP address' or similar in your main router WebUI)? A dynamic address would definitely make things more difficult. Since you access the drive from other devices in your local network, I am assuming you have explicitly defined 'shared folders', and user access permissions set up for each (requiring that an allowed username/password be given. Giving "Everyone" permissions can screw things up). If there is a such thing as 'simple file sharing' or 'automatically search/configure devices' on your router or drive...don't use it. In my experience those "features" are usually the cause of issues.

    Since I am new to 'Wii manipulation', I don't know how to configure the console. I am a Software Engineer, but I know PCs not consoles (yet). From Bilepo's post, it looks like wiimc has a similar network connection setup like any media player (blu-ray) or integrated media software would on a PC. Enter the static IP Address, username, password, and usually the name of the specific shared folder you want to access. Be sure that you are case-sensitive and all should work I believe...unless router firewall, port forwarding, or other IP blockage issues exist.

    I do wish a NAS could host games...but then the Wii would have to be able to decide whether to go to the NAS address for game data, or the Internet gateway for other needs (like a PC does). Of course, if the Wii can make this "choice" then I suppose it is do-able somehow...

    You could indeed enter path of the network share using an IP adres, like: \\WAN.IP.OF.THE.HARDDISK\share. As long as you have a static ip, this should work.
