You should be OK.
I have a whole server rack, and that's a lot of equipment for anybody who doesn't have that kidn of tech or need for it. ( i run a dozen or so
PC's and other electronics in teh house with kids and stuff so it's good to have it all on one system.)
Basicaly I use Windows Media Center. I believe the PS3 has a similar option for shared PC connections. That way you load all your content to the PC
and the drive and stream it via the program just like Netflix.
If you don't have any issues with Netflix than I see no issues using the above to attain the same goal.
Here's the easiest way to do it via PS3:
Follow these directions to do so.
1. Make sure PS3 is connected to your network
2. Install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer that is attached to the same network
3. In WMP11 go to Tools>Options
4. In the options dialog box click the library tab, then click Configure Sharing
5. You should see all the computers on your network AND an "unknown device" (which is your PS3)
6. Right click on "unknown device" and select Allow
Now if you go back to your PS3 you should see a Windows-looking icon at the top of Pictures, Music and Video sections. Use that icon to access your
