Media Files and Formats

To play media, the digital entertainer must be connected to the network, and the
media server software must be running. The media files can be stored on any
computer on the network, or on a CD in the computer’s CD drive. The media
player locates the media in your library folders.

The media server software is installed from the NETGEAR CD as described in
Chapter 1, “Installing Your Digital Entertainer”.
