    I've googled around and can't find an answer for this....at work we have little digital media players that read compactflash cards and play the media files on a display. I'm wondering if there is such a device that will play media from an external hard drive, like DVDs and MP3 files. I know that there are external hard drive enclosures that do this but if anyone has heard of a sort of gateway between the external HDD and display please let me know where you can find that. Thanks.
