    few questions in setup

    I am running RR for about 5 month now... everything is good. just a few questions. How do i get the DVD function to work? when i press it, it just loads the playlist of my winamp. Can i make it load the DVD drive?

    Another question, I have 2 harddrives with information, music on C: and on D:. How would I make RR read music from both drives? any ideas?

    Also to play DVD, do i need a codec?


    In mappoint there is an option to rotate map as you driving, but in RR i cant enable it using the settings, any ideas?

    Can you play DVD's outside of RR?
    What is your settings for DVD in RRConfig
    RR uses mediaplayerclassic for DVD, so you'll need to install that
    And yes you will need a codec to play DVDs if you find you cant play them ouside of RR either

    if you have music on C and on D
    you can add these paths to BROWSE.RRL (create file if not present)
    create a txt file and name it as above and stick it in the root of your music lib.
    My file looks like this

    G:\ --THUMB DRIVE--

    in RR --THUMB DRIVE-- shows up at the top of my playlist as a directory

    you can possibly use this to load audio cds' i havnt tried that though.


    I know nothing about mappoint.

    Did you set up MPC in RRconfig? The path is one of the first settings.

    1-place MPC anywhere
    2-Point RRConfig to the path that has MPC
    3-Make sure you don't check the Use External DVD player in the video section

    read this thead to access your D drive:
