I currently have Win XP Pro and enabled sharing through WMP. Although the contents in "My Videos" changes very frequently because I delete what I've already watched, I noticed that there are a few folders that still show up on the XBOX 360 side even though they don't exist on my PC. How do I go about solving this? I feel as though this is a problem others must have had in the past.

Thank you.

sounds like shared folder was deleted in windows.
if this is the case make the folder you are seeing on the xbox share it then remove the share and delete the folder.

sometimes the sharing is still there if the folder is deleted without removing the share first.

Thanks a lot man. Your suggestion seems to be working. I recreated the folders and even went a step further by creating a dummy "avi" file within them. Booted up the 360 and turned it off in order to have it see those folders and then deleted it all.

Clear as day now.

Thanks.
