Windows 7: WMC DVD Movie Library x2???

WMC DVD Movie Library x2???

OK... a strange issue here. I just setup a Movie Library and added only that folder C:\Users\My Videos\DVDs to my Movie settings in WMC.

All my DVD Rips play fine but I show 2 copies of every movie and I only have 1 of each in that folder.

I'm new to this Movie sharing stuff... Any Ideas?

Answered in another thread but for other users having the same problem.

The "My Videos" folder is monitoring by Movie Library by default, did you happen to add it manually as well? In general I would never use the "My Videos" folder as a root. Too many default actions that you have no control over. I'm a big fan of the native libraries and always use them over wmp's library but not of the "My" shell folders.

Try moving it a different location, clear out your Movie Library watched folder list and then adding the new location.
Please mark as solved.
