Hi, does anyone know of anything like the squeezebox that you could also connect a USB hard drive to, so that the hdd could be accessed by a laptop on the wireless network, and then the audio could be streamed back to the squeezebox...?!

its just such a pain having to have my external hdd connected to the laptop all the time, so that would be a great way to kill 2 birds with one stone!

also, u know if it can work on a WPA network?!

If you already have a router you might want to look into a Ximeta Netdisk. This is what I use to store all my music, and it is available as a local drive from any PC on our network that I choose to give access to. Bought mine refurbished and it has worked out great.
