yes.

Try to access the drive with either SMB or UPnP when you add a new video source.

You probably have to set something up on your router to give the ATV2 access. What is the make/model of the router?

Seems I have misunderstood you. I thought you meant the USB HDD was connected to the router.

Samsung does not have a way to share a USB HDD from itself to the network.
