Hi, Have done a bit of a search and tried a few things - so can anybody help me?

Can you set the default path of say "My Movies" so it goes straight to the folder on my PC without having to go thru all the step of selecting workgroup, then, computer name, then drive, then folder?

Info that may be useful:
- I just share my folders on my pc and XBMC picks them up via WORKGROUP (default)
- PC IP is 192.168.1.3 - Xbox is 192.168.1.4
- Movies folder on PC is located at X:\movies
- I don't have a username or password to access my PC, nor do i need one for my network share.
- My PC's name on the workgroup is STUDY
Any help would be appreciated. Also, can I point "My Movies" to 2 spots? X:\movies and Y:\ TV Shows?

Thanks.

CODE
      <bookmark>
            <name>Videos</name>
            <path>smb://username:password@192.168.1.3/movies</path>
        </bookmark>


remove username:password if you dont have permissions set on your computer.

and jsut share the movies folder not the entire drive for this to work, but it may work if the entire hard drive is shared.

Excellent, thanks a lot I will try tonight. So is there a way to share "TV Shows" shared folder in there as well?
So when I click on "My Videos" in XBMC it will take me to those two options (Movies and TV Shows)
thanks again
