    I have a network drive mapped with a different user name. That network drive is not available within the configuration. This can easily be tested by going to General - Virtual Drive, select Automount image files and select Browse. Try to browse to your network drives and it will fail. This also means that Moving Pictures and TV-Series Plugins are unable to access these network drives.



    This fails to on Windows Vista and version 1.1.1.0.

    regards, Gunnar

    What do you are mean they are mapped with a different user? Are these mounted as a network drive (allocated a letter like z:) or are these access using \\server\share UNC path?

    They are mounted as a network drives with a .cmd file.

    for excample;

    net use l: \\<server>.<domain>.<local>\<share> /yes /user:<username> <password>

    or by selecting

    Connect using different credintials

    in the Map Network Drive dialog.

    The mapped drives that are connected in "My Computer" are not connected when I browse in configuration. Some servers reject multiple connections to a single network resource from the same ip address, so even if I supply the correct credentials for network drive within the configuration it still fails.

    Just tried this on Win7 x64 and I can't see any mapped drives (whether they use default credentials or not) but I can access these via "Network" node.

    Tried on my XP machine and the drive shows up under My Computer.

    I have a feeling this is Win7 knowing best and wants you to connect via network rather than a bug in MP but anyone else got a view?
