Media centre now playing DVD from HD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been covnverting my current PC into a media server/server as the new build will be my main gaming PC. Anyhow I have so many DVD's and I've been burning them to My 1TB raid. Problem was MCE didn't read the DVD files..

Found this registy key entry which adds a DVD gallery to your media centre and now I can play all my DVD's from HD Woohoo!!!

here it is..

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\C urrentVersion\\Media Center\\Settings\\DvdSettings swap dvdgallery

from play to gallery.. then when you add a dir to watch dont enter it through video settings, but right click in the dvd gallery and add it there.

How did you burn them to your HDD? I would just rip them using XviD. I don't know if Media Center supports XviD though

DVD decrypter is very fast and gets rid of all the crap you don't want.
