Libraries

Ive got a SD card that is going to live in my computer, treat it as another hard drive, and I want to add it to my videos library but Windows says I cant.

Is there a way to add removable storage into a library?

I just tried that too, looks like these are the only places you can add to the libraries.

I don't know about setting it up, but won't using an SD as a hard drive fry that thing in no time?

I know "thumb-drives" weren't designed for that type of use and will die quickly if use in that manner.

Curious...

Well yes, I was just trying to compare. But that's beside the point. I want to find out if there is a way to put it on a library.

Do a search on the Forum there is a long thread only a week or two old on this subject. Conclusion was that you cannot add an SD card to the library in Windows 7!

It is actually pretty simple. Create a folder on that SD card. Then use "send to" to put this folder into e.g. Documents. Create a new library (or use an existing one) and include that folder. That's at least how I do it with USB sticks which have the same problem. Then you can create subfolders to that folder - if you wish.
