Hello,

I have created separate folders of various TV series that I have acquired over the years, e.g. separate folders for each season of Smallville. In total about 70 folders for various series alone.
Then there is 1 folder for all DVD-Rips, 1 for Music, and 1 for Photos.

Now, when I add all these folders to Windows Media Center, I believe it does not allow me to add more than 63 folders in total in the media library.

Has anyone encountered the same problem? I would like to understand if this is true or if there is another problem that is not allowing me to add these additional folders.

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Cheers,
Piyush

Have you tried adding the parent folder instead of all the individual subfolders?

I have a similar set up with wit the files stored on our house servers and my own PC. Approx 15,000 folders. I add parent folders with 70-80 folders one level down the hierachy. Works fine.

For an alternative, you can also shortcuts in subfolders. A bit time-consuming to set up, but perhaps the answer?
