Windows 7: Media Center- Setup Movie Library

Strange

1 thing you could try is to restart the service. Type 'services' into the start menu & press enter, then scroll to the bottom & highlight 'Yammm' then click 'restart' & see what happens.

The only problem is that its not showing up on the restart. I restarted my computer and windows media player still has nothing added. Once again, do I need to manually add the info for each movie or does the program automatically do it?

Before putting your attention on Media Center, what are the current contents of just 1 movie folder?

Hi, sorry for the late reply (7600 leak & all that )

I would look to move your movie location. You could try the Take Ownership Shortcut to take ownership of your 'My Movies' folder.

It could be that as Windows/System32 is a system folder (normally owned by TrustedInstaller), Windows is halting all attempts by Yammm to automatically download new data

Good news Shark!

All i did was delete all directories that WMC accessed for movies, then added them back in and took ownership of my movies folder and the program works perfectly. Thanks again for the help +1
