How Do I Change Media Centers Save Program Folder / Drive ?

How to make Media Center to save recorded programs to a folder and device

of my choosing. In my case, a external USB drive.

I'm at a total loss on how to get this damn annoying application to save

programs (live TV) to a folder and drive of my choosing.

I look in setup and see no settings for such.

Frankly, I find the Media Center horrible implementation for what I want to do.

Edit. Doh. I managed to stumble around in the settings menu morass and

found the section I needed for changing to another drive.

I still hate MCE. I want my Beyond TV back.

Now to record Red Eye so I wont have to stay up till 3am.

Set Default Save Location To Last Save Folder?
Is there any way to set the default save location folder for downloads in IE8 to the last folder that the same file type was saved in? It makes no sense to default to a single folder and have to browse through to the desired folder for every single download, so I assume there has to be an option somewhere.

How To Change Folder Name Under C Drive Users
I got a new laptop at work, and the IT group performed the initial setup. Of course, they entered my name incorrectly. I am the "administrator" on this computer, and I made the correction. However, on the C: drive, under the C:Users folder, my misspelled name persists. I select then right-click, but I cannot change the folder name. I see that the "lock" symbol is displayed next to the folder name, so obviously, the folder is locked and that explains why I can't change the folder name. How do I change a folder's name under C:users?

Change Default Media Player / Icons On Media Files Not Changed
I have VLC Portable as the default program for opening some video files, like .mp4 and .avi. And I have Foobar (portable) as the default program for .mp3.Usually the icons on .mp4, .avi, .mp3 files get updated with the icons of the assigned media players.But on this PC it's not working. They're still the same icons as if WMP was the default player.Does it have to do with the Standard user account? (Because on other PCs I run from an Admin account and I don't have such problems.)

Media Center Will Record, But Not Save?
I recently changed my cable plan to basic (channels 1-18) and since then, I haven't been able to see any of the shows that I have set to record. They have not saved. I did a search on any new files and even noticed one of my shows recording one night, so I know it is not the cable company.There's plenty of room on the hard drive and when I manually record and stop recording, it actually DOES save and place it in the recorded TV folder.It must have something to do with the automated recording feature and even though it seems a coincidence that this started when I changed my cable plan... well, I just don't know. I also did a rescan of the cable network and channels.

Documents Save As To (NSP1RMCB) Folder
I noticed that a number of documents I worked with and did a "save as" went not into my documents folder (as I had assumed, but into a folder called "NSP1RMCB" and when I go to Windows Explorer I can not see such folder. I have hidden folders set to show. How do I find the folder and why does windows 7 do this? How can I make sure that does not happen again?

Favourite Folder Save Options?
One of the features I like in Windows 7 is that I can customise the Favourite Folders that appear in the save options. For example I can in include any folder in the save list for most applications. This works for microsoft Word, IE etc. However some applications like Adobe reader and a few others do not have my favourite folders when I go to save. They just have the basic: Recentplaces/Desktop/Libraties/Computer/Network. Does anyoner know of a way to include my favourite folders in the list for Adobe reader and these other applications as well?

New Laptop - Can't Save To Program Files?
I just received my new Toshiba Satellite laptop. It has Windows 7, and the first thing I did was go to download Firefox so I could get rid of IE.I want to save the Firefox program in Program Files, where I always used to save programs, and it tells me I "don't have permission" to save and would I like to save to the downloads folder instead. This is making me crazy, as I'm the ONLY user on the computer, it's brand new, and I should have the "administrator" permissions! How in the heck do I make it able for me to be the administrator/have access to everything? I should install/uninstall immediately to protect myself regarding this new laptop, What is the best anti-spyware out there these days? And someone told me I should NOT use Norton. My laptop came with it--should I automatically uninstall it?

How To Change Automated Save Destination
When I open a windows office file from the internet (Word or Powerpoint) and I then I go to save it via "save as", it automatically opens the temp file as the save destination, not the folder I most recently had open, or the folder where I've saved the previous 20 files I've downloaded.

Is there a way to direct the default save file to open not as temp but as what I want it to?

Unable To Change Or Save File To Any Directory?
About 2 days ago I noticed that all of a sudden my scroll and progress bars, and all of the prompt windows (save, open file, etc.) changed to a Windows 98 style! I didn't think anything of it until I tried to save an image through Firefox and it wouldn't bring up the prompt to choose a location. Initially I thought it to be exclusive to Firefox, but later I had worked on an Word document and when I tried to Save As... the exact same thing, a flash indicating that it tried to open the location window and that's it. Every program does the exact same thing, no way to bring up a location menu or change directory.

Windows Won't Save Password Change
I had this OLD password that I had set. During this time I had that password I did use windows' system image utility to backup my old 500GB drive to restore it on a 1TB drive and I did that while I had this password.Now, when I try to change the password it will not save the change. When I change it, I can logout and it will accept the NEW password, but once I reboot or shut down and it comes back up, it only accepts the OLD password.

Copied Flash To Harddrive, And Cannot Save Edited File In Folder?
I have Windows 7.i copy entire flash drive to a folder (Call it "RemovableDrive" folder under My Document) from flash drive (USB).In "RemovableDrive", folder, I right click and select Properties, then I uncheck READ ONLY, and select Apply to set all files and folder/subfolders to uncheck READ ONLY.

Allow Access To Save/edit Files In C Drive (System Drive)
I'm really hoping I find an answer to this question besides the one I've found on the internet a hundred times over (That's not a good idea, you shouldn't do it).

My question is: Is there a way to allow a user to create/edit files in the C drive (system drive), and in the Program Files contained there? Let's assume that this user is not only a local admin, but a domain admin as well.

The reason for this is I work for a company that does a lot of editing within these areas of Windows. We need to be able to create and edit files where they are stored. I know one way around we've found is to copy the item out of the folder, edit it, and put it back, but this is a pain in the butt.

I also know that most program need to "run as admin", so that's not the problem either. I've given this user every right and permission in the Security tab of the C drive, and had it propagate down through all files, folders, and sub-folders, and still I'm hit with an error that says "Access is Denied" or another one saying that I don't have the right privileges.

Please, if anyone knows how to change this in 7 it would be much appreciated. I know that this worked in XP, and I'm not looking for someone to tell me "this is a bad idea so don't do it", or "maybe it didn't work right in XP". I have seen enough of these.

UPDATE: I have been playing around with saving office and wordpad documents into the C drive, and into the Program files. It seems that I'm able to do both now (for some odd reason), but I still receive intermittent errors when trying to edit or copy/paste or cut/paste from one location to another.
