My Vista Windows Media Center gives the error that there are no files when I browse to the relevant directory, even though they're there in Explorer. The files are avi movie files, and have worked before. They will still play in WMP and Real. I've removed and readded the directory to watch with no change, and it can still read other media files (jpgs, mp3s etc) on the same drive and see the directory structure for the avi files.
Can anyone help please? Thanks very much

I just did some quick googling and found this site that explains how to get AVI as well as other file formats to play in Vista Media Center. I haven't tried it personally, but looking it over it looks like it should work.
Let us know how it goes.

Hello - no I can't find anything that looks like a key for avi - I take it you mean the 'shared' subdirectory under the OpenWithProgIds so that it's not overwritten when other components are installed? If that's not what you mean can you please let me know! Thanks
