Roku Ultra - playing files from laptop

Hi,

I intend to buy the Roku Ultra. I would like to know if it is possible (like the wdtv) to copy, from my laptop, movies files into the USB drive which will be plugged into the Roku Ultra. To do this, the Roku would be displayed from my laptop as an external storage unit.

Thank you very much for your help.

No, you can't copy files to the drive while it's attached to the Roku.. you can keep it attached to your laptop, and share it with Roku Media player or Plex though.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
