    there are quite a few external hard drives with network ports - these are basically a network box with a hard drive. they also come with usb ports that allow you to plug in other external usb hard drives / flash drives etc.

    ive never seen just the case/interface though

    eg buffalo link station - stand alone hard drive network enabled, built in printer driver and 2x usb ports for additonal usb drives. 170plus vat for 120gig

    Linksys NSLU2 Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 Disk Drives is a box that has no internal storage, just adds 2 x usb2 ports to a network device to add external usb hard drives to a network - about 55 plus vat

    Cheers Dunk, the standalone usb drive combos are no good for what I'm trying to do. I'm looking for something along the lines of the attached pic, just a straight IDE to TCP/IP interface, it's going into a DVD player so IDE is the only thing I have to work with, unfortunately the pictured product is discontinued

    why stick a dvd directly to a network - easier to share a dvd drive on a pc surely? or even a virtual dvd for free?

    I've added a hard drive to my DVD player Dunk, it holds my MP3 collection and photo collection. I have put a drive caddy in the front so I can take the drive out and put it in my PC to update it but it would be a lot handier if it was networked
