You will only be able to open files that are natively supported on your iOS device. Files that are not natively supported will either require that you re-encode them into a format that is supported by the iOS device, or will require that you download a 3rd party app that supports browser access to network drives. For more information on what file types and codecs your iOS device supports, please visit the Apple website.
