Do you have any suggestion on where such a Linux firmware coud be found, to fix the respective limitations ? I could not find any, but maybe I do not know how to talk to aunt Google.
I have a Samsung BD-D5300 Blu-ray, a Balkin Play Max router and a WD 1Tb My Book connected by USB to the router. I can not get the folder structure on the WD to be seen on the BD, only very few of the files on the WD are visible, etc. If I connect the WD directly to the BD, everything is visible - folder structure, all files, etc. But, obviously, I would like to keep the WD connected to the router, so that it can be seen by all computers on my home network, as well as being able to stream content from it to my BD and further on to my TV (only my blu-ray has All Share/network capability, the TV doesn't).
Of course, I could use the most primitive solution of all, namely to unplug the WD from the router and plug it into the BD, but this is primitive even for primitive.
Many thans in advance for a competent reply.
