    Hi,
    Im from Argentina and I just bought in US an Sony NSZGS8.
    I also attach a 4 TB Usb hard drive (WD MyBook) formatted with NTFS I Guess.
    I cant view over the FTP access to /mnt

    How can I do?

    What apps would you recommend of the gs8? (games, bittorrent, remote access, whatever)


    Regards,
    Jonathan

    If I understand correctly what you are trying to accomplish is view a USB mounted HD that is connected to your GTV. And you want access that drive's content on a computer. If so the I'd give WiFi File Explorer a try.

    I haven't tested this on GTV. But I use it all the time to access files on my phone from my PC. It is like having a wireless thumb drive. You don't leave the app running all the time, just launch it when you need to access or move files. I bought the Pro paid version as it was well worth it.

    Catfishrivers' approach is to do all file management on the GTV device rather than on the computer. I think that is a bit more complicated because it requires setting up network file sharing on the computer. Besides I think what you were asking was to do the file management from the computer anyway.
