Synopsis: After I have run the scan for media, it seems to find all my media, but when I open Media Portal there are only 20 folders in each folder (music, video and pictures). I tried reinstalling (both versions). Hope you can help....

    the wizard seems to have problems with finding all media. Its a know bug afaik.

    It is much easier to add your shares manually. Go to Setup->Music/Video/Pictures->Shares. And add your shares. You do not have to add them all, just add the root directory of each section.

    After adding them, you can fill the database if you want. Setup-Music/Video->Database->Scan

    HTH, Flip.
