One assumes you are attempting a upnp source, rather than a smb source.
If it's a smb source, then just mount the folder using windows networking.

They do not work on the pc build (I have assumed this is a known issue). I have mapped them on the pc, but of course they do not show up when browsing the add dialog. I guess I must add the mapped drive to the .bat file.

Its not an issue/bug, its not the purpose of the win32 build in case you didn't notice its got in the title bar "PC Skin Preview" its not meant to be a full functional version of XBMC and probably never will the only reason anything works in it is devs testing stuff
If you want a proper XBMC I suggest you stick with the xbox version or the Linux version
The title of this thread is also GUI Development Environment for skinners & python developers

That's why I asked if there will be a new thread for the more developed PC builds. It looked like there were multiple things going on; the standard xbox version, the linux port, this 'skin and python preview', and a more functional pc port. I guess I got confused and there isn't a 'more functional' pc build. Sorry for my confusion.

Thank you for making the XBMC_PC build - it makes skinning so much easier!
A problem I've run into is that in Windows Vista, XBMC_PC.exe crashes on exit. I'll close XBMC_PC and Windows Vista will pop up a box saying that the program stopped responding and Windows is looking for a solution. After closing this box, the run_me_first.bat command window usually finishes exiting.
It's not a huge deal, and it doesn't really cause any issues for me, but I know the error doesn't occur on when working on Windows XP. I don't know if running it with WinXP compatibility mode would help (nor am i sure how to use that for a .bat file).

many thanks and a (bad) question - Latvian3Dman - 2007-10-12 15:45
First of all, many thanks to everyone who made XBMC software, it is one amazing piece of fun and comfort! I am using it for i think several years now on my XboX (built into old Sony Hi-Fi CD player case, btw).
Recently i built another media hardware for myself, PC/Windows based HTPC. XboX is great and all, but HD contents need more power, etc, etc. So, I tried softwares like old MyHTPC, cuccessor Meedio (recent Ultimate edition), and also Media Portal. Meedio Ultimate wins for me so far, but XBMC somehow feels better After trying recent T3CH compiled XBMC for PC, it is hard to go back to anything else.
I do understand there is no pc port support for "end users", it is not intended for using as pc media shell, but... it is so great its hard not to use it!
So my "unappropriate" question to anyone who is willing to help: can i somehow use PC DVD drive for reading media? I tried on several computers, i can not add D:\ drive as source. Maybe any hints, suggestions, workarounds?
Thanks a lot in advance!

change the drive letter if your dvd drive to somthign other than d: and add it as the source though none of the auto play stuff will work I suggest you take a look at the linux version its way more complete than the win32 one it even has visualisations
