Title: Make WDTV not recognize a certain folder?
Post by: clemster on March 03, 2009, 03:27:11 PM
I have a large hard 1TB drive that I use for the WDTV which has both movies and other files (e.g. computer backups). Is there any way that I can just have the WDTV recognize my media videos and not my other stuff. Can I put my backups in a folder which the WDTV won't automatically recognize? I know I can just go into folder view and select my main media folder, but it would be nice to select "all videos" and not have to see random backed up stuff.

Thanks in advance

you can rename any folder with a "." before it. 
For example change "backup" to ".backup" and it will not show up on the WDTV  :)
