    On my external HD (Formatted to Fat32) I have all my media in the Picture, Video and Music folders.

    Within the Video folder I have two folders "Movie" and "TV" and all my boxsets have been stored under the directory like so:

    Video/TV/Show/Season/Episode 1.avi
    However it says there are no titles unless the video file is placed in the show folder..

    Videos from the directory Video/Movie/Title.avi show up and play fine.

    Why can't the PS3 see sub folder's any further that 2? Is there a way to get round this? I don't want to have all my TV series listed in one directory.

    Yeah it's annoying.

    When on the video/music/pictures menu on the xmb, goto the drive, and instead of click X to open it, click triangle and select Display All. this will then display all compatible files.

    This is a really silly feature of the PS3, where the dev expect you to place files in the order they expect you to, hence why files dont show up in other folders.
    Any files which do not show up are not compatible with $ony's "it only does everything" PS3, but then again it may show some files but when you click them you get the Unsupported Format message.
