Twonky v6 and v5 on 2 different servers

PC Windows 7 running Twonky Server 6.0.32
Drives on that Machine:
Drive C is the OS
Drive E is a USB External Hard Drive
Drive F Mapped to a My Book World Edition II External Hard Drive (No Twonky Installed)
Drive G Mapped to a My Book World Edition External Hard Drive (With Twonky Media Server 5.1.9 Pre-Installed)
All drives are full of Videos.

When I go to Twonky 6 on my Windows Machine and to Basic Setup -> Sharing I have the following shares:

Once on my PS3 I can see everything on my E and F drives but can't see anything on my G drive (The one with Twonky 5 pre-installed)

I know I can update My Book World Edition to Twonky using ssh and some hacking since WD hasn't release yet a version 6 of Twonky on their firmware, but is there a way to use my current version 6 of Twonky from my PC to read that external Hard Drive?

I just bough Twonky 6 and I just need it to read that Hard Drive.

What about aggregation on the Advance Setup? How can I configure maybe Twonky 6 to read shares of Twonky 5?

Do I need to uninstall or stop Twonky 5 in order for Twonky 6 to read that Hard Drive.

note: I notice that when I click Browse on Sharing I get a list of letters like:

What is strange is that I don't get drive G even if is also a mapped drive like the rest.

Any Ideas or suggestions will be appreciate.

Share your network drives using their URL addresses not the mapped drives such as

\\\Films2 and \\\Films3

Use the IP addresses not the host names.
