Yup. So long as you have a folder shared on your windows box.

If you have movies on your windows machine share that folder. Call the share "movies"

Ssh into the azbox and issue this command:

mount.cifs //ip.of.windows.box/movies /DATA/movie -o user=your_windows_username

The azbox will then ask for your windows password. Type it in. Press enter. If successful you'll get the azbox prompt again. Then on your azbox remote press the home button. Go to Movies. Go to the movies folder. You should see the movies on your windows folder.
