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

Nov 17, 2009

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?

Jan 22, 2011

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

Mar 24, 2011

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

Nov 28, 2012

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?

Oct 16, 2011

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.

New Laptop - Can't Save To Program Files?

Mar 14, 2012

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?

Favourite Folder Save Options?

Apr 21, 2011

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?

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.

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?

Jan 31, 2011

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.

Allow Access To Save/edit Files In C Drive (System Drive)

Dec 18, 2009

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.

Save File On External Drive Not The Same As Internal Drive

Feb 19, 2012

Why do files moved to an external drive not behave the same as those same files in an internal drive? I noticed that if I do anything to a file that is in an external drive, that file can not be saved under the same name (read only). In order to do so one must save it internally and then copy or move it to the external drive.So I did just that--I copied a file from taken from an external drive, saved it in the internal one and then copied it back to the external one. Now if I r-click the propeerties of these 2 same files and then go to the 'Security' tab a difference is immediately apparent: The internal one has -1- System & -2 My-computername (user-PCuser and -3- Administrators (user-PCAdministrators) with all 3 accounts allowing all (full control, read, write, etc..). While the external drive has in Properties; -1- System -2- Administrators (user-PCAdministrators) and -3- Users (user-PCUserrs) with this final 3d one (and different one) with no Allow for "full control, or modify or write. So how does one have all its files in this external drive behave and be equal to all the same files in the internal drive?Since -3- Users (user-PCUserrs) in the external drive is that which is differnt from the internal drive I was wondering if it is OK to delete this Permission or 'attribute' or whatever it is called and create instead one equal to the one in the internal drive -3- Administrators (user-PCAdministrators)? ANd of course doing so in one go and not file after file after file individually?

Can't See TV Program Guide In Media Center

I have managed to configure Media Center for the new card, however whilst I am using Media Center with my new card I am not able to access any program guides, to see what other channels are showing, determine what I want to watch next, etc.

Program guide information is displayed when I use the Leadtek software, just not when I am using Media Center.

If anybody has any suggestions on how to enable program guide information in Media Center it will be greatly appreciated.

I've been BETA-testing Windows 7 from the first version, and I've never had any problems with the program guide in the media center. I have been able to mark the programs to be recorded, and it was done OK.
