    Vista Media Centre cannot find any video files


    Have setup Vista Media Centre but it does not show any of my videos other
    then the microsoft supplied sample videos. I have many avi files etc which
    it does show.

    I have monitored/added my c: drive in the Library options in the settings,
    but it always comes back with 0 files discovered after scanning the complete
    c drive.

    I can play these file with WMP in Vista.

    Can anyone help

    AVI files are not in the Media Center format and you have to select them
    manually. Go to Pictures & Videos, browse to the folder that contains the
    videos and select the one you want and it will play in Media Center.
