"1: check that the media on your external drive has been properly shared. What windows 'says' it has shared, and what is actually visible to others, doesn't always match.

2: look into 3rd party streaming software. Orb, PS3 Media Server, and MediaTomb are all options that allow you to select exactly what media to stream."

"is the removable drive formatted in FAT32 format ? you might need to have a FAT32 formatted drive for the systems to recognize the drive.

try conneting your external drive directly to the xbox or ps3 and see if you can access the usb drive .. if you still cannot see it, that means something's funky with your external hdd"
