    Heres a silly question but Im new to mac so bear with me.

    I have a bunch of DVD's backed up on an external HD and want to be able to access them through the frontrow movie menu. The only way I can work out to do it right now is to copy them to the movies folder on the computers HD but I dont want them sucking up all my disk space.

    So- can frontrow access folders on external harware? It seems logical that this should be totally possible - I just need to know how.

    Place an Alias of your external drive/folder in your Home>Movies folder and Front Row will find that. To make an Alias just Right-click the drive/folder.
