    Hello,
    I have purchased an external hard-drive from the internet and was wondering if FrontRow is capable of recognising a movie folder from an external hard-drive as the default.

    For example, at the moment Front Row > Movies goes to my Movies folder on my internal hard-drive, is there a way for it to go to an external hd?

    Thanks

    yea, if you put an alias of your external movie folder into your main movie folder, it will work. i do the same thing and it works quite nicely. ;)

    control+click the folder you want to make an alias of, select Make Alias, then drag and drop it into your movies folder.

    I do this for itunes, instead of having copies on both macs.
