Windows 7: How to "virginize" my movies??

How to "virginize" my movies??

Stupid question, but it bothers me how I can't figure out something SO SIMPLE!

Situation: I have an extensive movie library that I've created by transferring all my old DVDs and blurays onto my new HTPC. After the long process of converting/copying I'd always check if the sound and image was ok by going to random scenes in each movie.

Problem: Now all my movies have the Restart / Resume / Delete options. How the heck to I bring them all back to Play / Delete state? In other words, how do I clear WMC history?

I'd greatly appreciate any advice as this "problem" has been driving me nuts all morning!

If you let the video file play to the end it resets to the play and delete state. So if you wanted to reset a file you could click on the timeline bar a few seconds from the end and then just let it run out on it`s own. Of course, you would have to do this for each video one at a time. Maybe there`s a way of doing them all in bulk, but I have never heard of it.

I bet renaming the folder then rebooting before you restart Media center again would do the trick.

Thanks for the tips.:) I'll see if I can FFWD to the end of each movie.

Kind of annoyed at the lack of a global history reset.

Adding Videos to "Movies"?
I like the fact that Media Center has an option to have a special Movies category, becuas eI rip alot of my DVDs. However, I haven't been able to find a way to manually add these files in. IS there a special thing the file needs to have to show up there?
