View Full Version : NTFS drive don't work!

What a beautiful software.. Woh!

I have installed boxee in my windows xp sp3 but I can't load videos from my external drive ( Lacie 500gb, NTFS ). I can load any other video from my hard drive and from my other external drive ( 250gb, FAT32 ).

Is this a bug? Boxee don't load content from a NTFS external drive?
All my movies are in the Lacie drive :(

keep on touch!
( Sorry about my english! ;) )

um.... no. Boxee works best with NTFS because FAT32 doesn't support files over 4GB and most video rips are over that. Can you read the files normally in Windows and are you sure the files formats are supported by Boxee?

Yes, I know about the 4 gb limitation in the Fat32 drives..

Let's keep it simple:
The same file in the NTFS 200gb hd -> Boxee open the file!
The same file in the FAT32 250gb external hd -> Boxee open the file!
The same file in the NTFS 500gb external hd -> Boxee can't open the file!

This is a Print Screen.
"H" drive ir my NTFS lacie external drive,
and this folder "2000-2009" have a lot of movies,
but in the boxee "explorer" it appears to be empty.
(And yes, if I copy these movies to my HD, boxee will open the files.. the problem it's only when the movies are in the Lacie drive)
