Question Cant get media from NAS- HELP!!

hey, i have an unrooted firetv and im trying to play some roms through xbmc (using rom collection browser). the roms are located on a NAS drive which all my devices have access to. I was able to get the plugin to import the roms and scrape the data but when i try to play any rom using an emulator i installed i get a message saying "unable to locate path sda1/blahblahblah/roms, path does not exist". I figure that this is because the device wont allow me to play the roms from the network shared

but if i were to root my drive - would it be possible to play the games i have from the shared drive or would i have to try something else like Samba or mounting a USB stick and porting the games to it?

even though XBMC can see the network drive.. im not sure if the fire TV itself does, so how would i let my firetv have access to the shared drive so i wont see this message anymore?

anyone able to help? im wondering if side-loading this SMB app on the fire tv will allow the device itself to see the shared folder and play games from it

has anyone tried this as yet?
