I would like the ability to select all drives in My Video/Music when I go one directory up - not just CD/DVD drives.

Because sometomes, I put an external harddisk in and because it's not a CD or DVD it can't play it from MP 's 'explorer'.

    Add a new folder in the configuration with the drive letter windows assigns to your external drive.

    If the drive is not in, it will simply be an empty directory, and if you plug it in it should show the contents.

    Hope this helps

    This is how UAC works, the Media Portal itself runs under a user account, and the Configurator under an Administrator account/rights, the Administrator may not see your shared folders, especially if they are mapped to a drive letter (Because under his account, the shared folders were not mapped to the drive letter).

    Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

    Thanks for all the assistance; it is greatly appreciated. Rather than going the suggested route: I decided to do was I had stated earlier. I deleted all partitions (after taking the respective images, of course), then used Partition Master to do a surface scan, on the raw drive. As it came back with zero bad clusters, I thought it...
