I have read a lot of articles about Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center problems with libraries, but haven't found any useful solutions to the following problem. First some background:
1) Windows 7 up-to-date
2) Windows Video Library properly defined with a Videos folder on another partition/drive letter
3) Windows Media Player with additional codecs to play .avi video files (mostly xvid format)
4) Windows Media Center working properly for most functions (no error messages)
5) Indexing is enabled
My problem is that while Windows Media Player library/database has all my Videos\subfolders listing all their contents and playing all contents, Windows Media Center in the Video Library shows my Video subfolders but all the folders are empty and WMC displays the message "There are no items in this library yet - Windows Media Center is searching for media files in the background ..."
WMC is NOT searching for video files in the background. I can find no such process running and no videos have shown up after weeks with this problem.
I would like to watch my videos on my XBOX using Windows Media Center.
