Windows 7: MKV + Media Center/ Media Browser Issues

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7600

I have DivX installed as well. I am on a Dell laptop with windows 7 (x64) Any help would be really great! Thanks.
op is saying that media browser wont see movies he has RIPPED to his computer he mentions mkv files also ,giving the impression that he can play these files normally on his pc i assume no codec issue ,having just re -organised a large movie file mysef to use in media browser i am aware that MB wont fetch the meta data for some movies thus forcing one to scrape the meta data manually center master, or a choice of many meta data fetchers
perhaps the OP could clear this point up save us fafing !!!

Tends to lead me to belive that we've fixed the codec issuse, I'd guess that as MC on an X64 system, as the OP has, is a 64 bit program wheres WMP and what ever he was using to rip films to MKV was a 32bit program. Hence why he could create MKV's but not see them, now he has added a 64bit codec/splitter he can watch them in MC/MB.

The not seeing them/ them not playing issuse is due to the 360 not supporting MKV's out of the box, which is why I said to enable the transcode option in the config tool.

I ripped using makeMKV and yes I changed the transcode on the config tool but that didn't help.
