    Ok I use Front Row everyday and have it hooked to a 1TB drive that makes it an awesome media center. It used it last night and it worked fine. Tonight it wouldn't work.

    Clicking on "Movies" makes the little circle spin and spin and nothing happens. It just keeps spinning until I have to force quit the thing. I tried re-installing Quicktime, shutting down multiple times, adding or removing stuff from the Movies folder. Nothing works.

    Why would this happen all of a sudden? I haven't installed any new programs, I can't understand why it would just stop. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm running Tiger on a MacBook, all the software is up to date.

    Well this seems to have resolved itself. After trying tons of stuff last night (re-installing Quicktime, re-installing Front Row via the recovery DVDs) nothing worked so I left it.

    Tonight I thought I'd give it a shot and just try opening Front Row and it worked, flawlessly. Dunno what broke it, dunno what fixed it.
