"Some people just aren't happy unless they're disappointed or angry."
i only have 1 USB connected locally (3tb usb seagate) and its does NOT pick up any content locally.
I think there are 2 potential problems - the first is with the amount of USB powered devices which can be attached and the second is something to do with the file system and partition table types.
I'll try to reproduce these problems tomorrow morning and update this thread.
Regarding USB powered HD issue - there's a limit and we recommend using only one of these. Boxee can't power more than one.
- thank you for your help, but the issue is with a 3tb seagate go flex...which has its on power source and is the only external usb hdd connected to the boxee...
the boxee sees that something is plug into, but no folders or anything shows under local sources.
thx for the update!
I'm still working on the 3TB NAS issue. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

shay - i can report that i connected my seagate 3tb external hardrive to my router using a seagate goflex net media sharing adapter. it uses pogo plug and has a usb slot...and it worked....so once again it can share it over the network but not locally.
The only reason, I can think of, for the problem you (and others) experience is the partition is missing a UUID. Boxee relies on this UUID to properly attach (mount) the external HD.
It's easy to verify (whether there's a UUID) - could you let me know what OS your PC/laptop runs?
Hi shay, sorry I never responded after initially posting the thread - stopped getting subscription emails and didn't realize the thread was still active.
I can check the UUID on the drive if that might help. It'd be easiest for me to check on OS X 10.6, if you've got instructions (I've got a basic understanding of how to use terminal commands). My drive is a 1 TB Western Digital... something, formatted to FAT32 if that's still relevant info.
