Windows 7: Movie Library sort by date added?

Movie Library sort by date added?

Hi all,

I've been a long time reader of these fourms but first time poster but am looking for any advice on the following.

I use the movie library function to view & play movies that are "ripped" and recorded from TV. I have now 300+ movies and add movies every week. The sort by date added only seems to work for recorded from tv movies but not "ripped" movies. I use My Movie Finder to get the rest of the metadata & folder.jpg i can't work out how date added works.

Anyone else sorted this issue other that using Media Browser/My Movies etc..

Thanks for the advice,

For ease of use, take a look a an app developed by one of our own here @ sevenforums... YAMMM. It will automatically go out on the net and grab the needed meta data, images, etc. It is a great... GREAT time saver! My sort by date works fine!

Oh yeah, welcome to the forum faloony!

How to sort images by date added to a folder
I created a folder on my desktop and add images of books I have sold almost daily. With Windows XP, the images would stay in order as I added them, but with Windows 7 they are always in order of the image name. I have tried using the different sort by date options, but they are always sorted by...

AVI files on SAN not getting added to WMC Movie Library
I've just setup an HTPC (W7 Professional 32bit) and am using WMC on Windows 7. I've run into a problem that lots and lots of people have had (can see lots of posts on the web) but not fixes seem to work and I've trolled for two days now finding no fixes for the problem. Perhaps someone can...

Not all vidoes being added to library
So I added my Movies folder to WMP 12 but for some reason it's only showing 66 of the 75 movies in this folder. All 75 were encoded to MP4 using Handbrake on identical settings so there's no differences between the files. Any ideas why 9 of the files refuse to show? They play just fine in WMP 12 -...
