well fixed this problem

Had to name each folder exactly. Movie title with no . or -, also renamed movie in folder. Then found Media Center Master what a great program!!
Now all movies show up NOW just need to find out how to start MB when computer starts. Trying to make media pc in family room, fixing all bugs first on office pc. Then build pc for wife and kids this weekend.

go back to the front page and you'll find a shortcut for Media Browser.
Download it then place it in your windows start menu startup folder and then it will launch with windows.

keep in mind music videos fall into a different category than traditional movies. You are going to have to manually create thumbnails for each music video. Do me a favor and post a screen shot of one of your music video folders, and maybe I can help you with an idea. What you may have to do is use album art that is related to the song that the video pertains to, then apply the cd cover as the folder.jpg.

that's what I have started working on late last night and more tonight..
Used that wonderful batch program in my video folder no have all videos in there own folder.. going on the internet and finding pictures and posting them in each folder.. still have major issue with MKV thumbnails tried every fix. still no luck.. thay play fine.. only thing is my 6tb net work box will be here wednesday. then I will back up my system and try fresh install of windows 7 and also vista on duel boot see what works best. that will be the OS I will use down stairs for now. then keep using my pc to work on things..

?what do you guys think is the best software to copy dvd's.

Also if I take the time to convert all MKV to different format to fix the thumb issue is it better?? What format is the best and takes the least space.

What software can do both copy dvd and blue ray and also convert files...

The main difference between .mkv and .avi is that you'll have more options, as in several track of audio and subtitles if included, and better quality on less hard drive space with .mkv than with .avi, since they are nothing but containers, there is no inherent difference in quility between one type of file and another. Therefore, even if you've downloaded .avi, its the same, dont regret it, there's probably not going to be much of a difference, if the job was done correctly, between those files and their .mkv counterparts. The important thing is that the picture looks the same on .avi and .mkv at the same resolution, but because .mkv can use x264 it will be a lot smaller at the same quality. Take your regular HD H264 release at 330MB. At .avi that should come in at 500-600MB. So, basically it depends on you and what you want to achieve. For me, right now I prefer avi because I do not have a plasma or lcd tv that I can hook up to my tv so that I can run my MC directly to it. The tv that is currently connected to it shows poorly, so I just put my movies on a flash drive, then stick in my dvd player, and run them from there. Once I break down and buy a better tv, I will transition to mkv files. You can use a batch converter to convert multiple files at one time so that you don't have to convert them one at a time. Search around, there are tons of software around that can do that for you, I hope this helps.
