    I have 5 hdd drives,( g, e, f, h, i, k) each with a movies and tv shows folder in each, i have made a TV shows library and a movies library that includes folders from 5 drives respectively.

    when broswing to my Windows 7 machine via the network, i see..

    Movies1
    Movies2
    Movies3
    Movies4
    Movies5

    and

    Tv Shows1
    Tv Shows2
    Tv Shows3
    Tv Shows4
    Tv Shows5

    this is all well and good but when i try to access g:\movies directly or i:\shows for examlple via my media centre 05, it says "shortcut not available"

    Basically when i have any directory listed in a Library it stops me accessing it via Media Centre, is there any way around this issue, or have each Library shared... ie i browse to me pc and get

    \\pc name

    TvShows
    Movies..


    Help PLZ!!!
