Media Center isnt seeing newly copied DVD's?

Ok I've been using DVDshrink to back up a couple of dvds to the hard drive

But for some reason media center isnt seeing them?

It only shows one movie that I backed up, but it doesnt even have a title or artwork or anything?

What library do you have them in? Did you set up that library in Media Center?
They might be in the Video Library if you converted them to something else.

Um not sure, I thought I set them up to the right library, but MC is kind of different the way it works.

Ok I finally got around to doing this & it didnt change anything. I already had the right folder ticked but it only shows 1 movie (with no poster) that I tried to rip & yet I cant even find that movie in the movie folder!

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I followed that first step of the filefolder.zip thing too

Do you have media center set to download media information? What do you mean "Tried" to rip?

No how do i set media center to do that?

Actually I think everything worked, I figured it out as far as the shrink goes. I think. I've got to get another dvd to try it on again.
