    You can probably achieve this for the Windwos network drives using the Samba package. You can look down the capabilities of this at the official samba website: Samba - opening windows to a wider world

    I'm unfamiliar with the Live Drive stuff - perhaps it has an NFS share option?

    I have managed to figure this out in windows you would use a \\blazablaza however in Linux kde you use a smb://blazablaza its kinda crazy but hey it works. Now if i could just figure out how to make video files work when i attempt to stream them from a windows station.
