    is this an internal or external drive. i have had similar issues and in all cases it has been that the hard drive has been faulty.

    Open Dcc, create a folder called movies in media\hdd, should look like this \media\hdd\movies, you'll have to map it in your box too, worth a shot

    good idea. would be interesting to see if any file structure has been created when the disk was initialized. you should be able to see this in /media/hdd/

    This is what I had to do, main thing was to create the movies folder and map it. Not sayin it will work but worth a shot. Another thing I've seen ppl do is d/l Gparted live and format the hdd to Ext3 with it to get it working
