Any Windows Vista Media Center experts here? I've always a couple of ripped DVDs on my Media Center's hard disk drive for two reasons, first I can easily watch these DVDs without doing the DJ and second, maybe even more important, I wan watch these DVDs, wherever I'm in the world thanks to WebGuide4.
However, recently the main HDD of my Windows Vista Ultimate Media Center ran low on storage space and I bought an external USB 2.0 HDD where I've moved all my music, photos and videos to.
While photo and music access worked fine (locally and remote), I ran into a serious problem with the videos. I wasn't able to play the DVDs anymore, neither locally (thanks to the Windows Vista Media Center hack) nor remotely through Webguide4. On my Media Center I got a notification, that the videos cannot be played and on my Windows Mobile devices (as well as my Notebook) I got another weird notification.
No way to play these videos. As soon as I moved them back to the main HDD everything worked fine again.
