I too have a similar setup, kids movies, movies, 007 movies, etc. When I add more than one folder into Windows Media Center it combines the contents of all those into the single movie library it uses.

You can still group movies together by title, genre, parental rating, etc; so its not a big deal to me. I dont think it can be avoided!

Anyone know a workaround to this?

Use the Video library instead of the Movies library? The Video library can be sorted by folders, unlike the Movies library, AFAIK.

Doesnt matter there... Because once you add anymore than 1 folder into Windows Media Center it combines all the movies into one list!
