Media center can no find movies

Hi,
I just set up Windows media center, all seems to be working fine. It has managed to find my pictures, and my music, however it does not seem to find/display my movies.
All movies i had are saved in the "My Videos" folder and in libraries. How can i get media center to find my movies??

It's a slight pain but you have to add the directories you want to use through Tasks/Media Libraries and then simply point to them. I actually thought the primary libraries were scanned automatically but that's why Computing With Microsoft is such fun - after all, if they made it too easy, everyone would be doing it, right?

Thankyou it worked
The Videos Library should automatically get included IMO
