Mark likes his SONY BDP-BX57 Blu-ray player, except for its DLNA support... it won't play anything other than MP3 audio, JPEG pictures and MPEG2 video. Mark wants more file format support! Robert explains why that Sony only handles those files, then explains how to play other formats on it by transcoding, using the DLNA Media Server software, PS3 Media Server, TVersity or Twonky!

Al's son managed to turn their 500 GB drive into a 16 GB drive after plugging it into an Xbox 360 and hitting OK at the "the X-box will create a 16 GB partition on this drive" prompt.

For our favorite file recovery tools, check out 'save the wedding photos, save a mairrage' from a few weeks ago. To learn what the Xbox 360 did to this drive and how to un-do it, watch this video and download GParted Live or Partition Wizard Home Edition. And Back Your Files Up now!

Mark writes in, "Audible books have been a real life-line for my father, who suffers from a variety of disabilities. He's having more and more difficulty using MP3 players with microscopic controls. Any suggestions?" Yup!
Shaun wants to tuner an older dual core PC into a FreeNAS box. Should he get ultra-efficient parts and let the NAS run all the time, or should I set up my NAS to shut down without activity and turn on when accessed? If it's the latter, how do I do that? Are there certain hard drives, Power Supplies, or other components that are better with a NAS than others? Watch the video to find out what we'd do!
