i had this same issue when I got my new computer with Vista. All of my backed up movies on hard drives wouldn't play in Media Center. With Vista all I had to do was change a setting in Regedit. I tried to navigate to this same area in Windows 7 and can't find the setting to change.

Any ideas?

Tom

It may take a while to import the videos into the Media Center Library.

Thanks for the suggestions Bodaggit23. However, the problem is bigger than just importing the movies into the MC library. I have already added all of the folders and hard drives for the MC library.

As I stated in the first post, THE FIX in Vista was the following:

Open Registry Editor (Start, Run, REGEDIT) and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\DvdSettings

Double-click the key ShowGallery and change the value from “Play” to “Gallery”.

Click OK and exit the Editor. If you’ve got Media Center open, you’ll need to shut it down and re-launch it. Now, under “TV + Movies”, the “Play DVD” option is now “DVD Library”. DVDs will still play as normal though – just insert the disc and the movie will auto-load.

However, the Regedit in Windows 7 looks like this:

I am not sure where you change the value from "Play" to "Gallery".

My Video Library comes up okay:

But when I click on a movie to watch the subfolders come up:

If you click the "play all" button you get sound only from the first VOB file. No picture and then it stops playing.

I am sure this is a setting somewhere. Just don't know where it is. My search on the web came up with some information on "TheGreenButton" forums to download a "Window 7 Codec by Shark007". It sounded really "fishy"to me and other post in the same thread questioned this also.

I am sure there is an easy solution to this. Maybe I will stumble upon it before someone can reply and give me the solution.

Thanks,
Tom
