Windows 7: 73 movie max count?

73 movie max count?

I have a bunch of movies i've downloaded and i set up the media library to browse all the locations for them but after it did it's initial search if found 73 movies total. but i keep trying to get it to search for more.. or i sit there and wait and wait and it never goes up above detecting 73 movies. i have probably 200 movies that it isn't seeing.

A few weeks later and it's still never seeing more than that.

Is there a way to fix it or is 73 the Max?


When i say "movies" i mean the "movie" section, abvoe the tv section.. Not the Video section. I get the Video section to detect everything. But i like how nice the "Movie" section looks where it puts the dvd cover picture and such.

hm. that's odd. i just added some more movie files that i downloaded last night and it's seeing those. it finally went up. now it's showing 89. figures it would wait until i posted here before showing me up..

but why is it cherry-picking like that. there are still tons more that it isn't acknowledging as "Movies" for that section.. and it can't be because they are incompatible with WMC because they play fine in WMC's "Video Library" area.

i'm really not sure, i know it's tedious but you could try moving the missing movies out of the their folder then placing them back in there and see if it decided to work. i wonder if anyone else here has had a similar problem.
