I was wondering if it is possible to point the movies folder to an external hard drive. I do not want to fill up my internal hard drive with movies. I want to store them on an external hard drive, then have the movies folder point there, that way I can still access them through the movies folder. Also if I do this, will front row still see them as being in the movies folder?

I don't know the program... but 99.9999999% of the time either under preferences, when you start up, or under the file menu you should be able to set a default folder.
or when you save, use the save as function and save it on the drive you want
QUOTE Thanks
