    Have you checked the video app settings to see if there is an option to scan for media and possibly setting on when it does this (i.e. scan each time the app is opened)?

After a format and transferring the files again, others broke, and the ones that didn't work before worked fine then.



    In advanced, sorry. It might already be enabled.

    But, rather than using the program files location, maybe try creating an sdcard folder in the videos folder in your user account, and mount it in there?
    i followed the guide on winsupersite.
    created c:\SD
    mounted my SD card in there
    created folders in my SD for each media type and the added them to my libraries.

    don't have an advanced option on SD or the mounted folder and not seeing my files in the libraries..

    Supposedly this should work:

    Team Radicus | Surface and SD Card

    I haven't gotten to try it myself yet, but the article describes to create folders on your SD, and mount those to folders on your c-drive, then add those folders to the indexing options.

    Glad to hear it

    Last weekend I tried something similar, but couldn't get it to work. I ran into that article yesterday, but didn't have time to play with it.

    When you add new files, does it update in the library now?

    I was wondering the same thing. I haven't gotten to setting it up that way myself yet, but I asked :
