Why So Many Levels of Folders for Photos, Videos, etc.? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Home Server apparently limits the number of media sub-folders that can be opened and was just wondering if that can be changed.

    I have photos and videos and music on an HP MediaSmart server.  When PS3 detects the the server, I get many folder levels which are redundant and of no use.
    Consequently I can't get to my lowest level folders on the server.

    The PS3 system detects "HP Server 1:Windows Media Connect".  The next level has "Music, Pictures, Playlists, Video".  I select "Pictures" (I don't need the other 3)
    and I get the next level, "Album, All Pictures, Data Taken, Folders, Playlist".  I select "Folders", (I don't need the other 4) and I get the next level, "Music, Photos,
    Videos".  I select "Photos", (I don't need the other 2) and FINALLY get to the first level of photos on my server.  I am then limited to 3 levels of folders down.  A lot of
    my photos are 4 and sometimes 5 levels down.

    Can anyone tell me why this limitation exists on the WHS and how to correct it? It seems that there are 2 or 3 levels of folders in the WHS detection scheme that are
    unnecessary.

    Thanks for any info you may have.
