    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    That is an excellent question and the only way I have heard is setting up SMB on the IMac and PC and access that way. Which is way kludgey. I remember this being asked on one of the forums but I think it was in relation to a Mac Mini. Search the forum and google for: Archos 101 media streaming OSX or replace OSX with Mac

    Quick question:
    I've set up my shared folders on my Win7 PC, WiFi enabled. On Archos 101 I go to 'Files' > Network > Shared folders (SMB) > [MyPC'sName] > [tap] > enter username and password!
    WTF!
    I don't have an username or password!
    My account username is Win7, my shared folders pass is 00000000 ?
    what now?
