It can sometimes take a while. I've noticed that not all movies have cast & crew/similar movies details.

Orbital Shark, do you have blu-ray movies in your movie library and are you able to launch a blu-ray player?

Hey Shark I think i'm lost.

I followed the steps, got the program options set up as they should and have it pathed correctly to my movie folder but I have no DVDID.XML in my movie folders. Does the program download them all for me or do i need to find them for each movie I have?

Hi mustangman, you need to make sure that the 'Windows 7 Media Center' metadata option is selected as well as the User checkbox selected

Set it up like the image below & you should be ok

Do you have all the movie files in seperate folders? You need to have the folders named correctly too E.G. Fast & Furious (2009), Iron Man, The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008).
