    Simple Oddities in SD

    I updated to the newest version of SD and I'm wondering how I can change a few things.

    1. I used to be able to load all of my music of a seperate partition, but now SD's auto loading of music doesn't look in my D: and I can't seem to specify it, am I missing somthing? In the mean time, going into WMP and Auto loading the music there is my solution.

    2. Navigation, when I am facing south, all of the street names are upside down. Anyway to force them to be right side up? Also, is there a way to force the map to always have north facing up instead of having my current direction up?

    1. Two things. First of all, make certain that your Music Path is set to toe partition where your music is. This is done through the EDIT MEDIA PATHS icon in the StreetDeck Program Group. Second, make certain the option to automatically index new media files is selected in the options within SD.

    2. No. The maps are just the map information from MapPoint overlayed onto a "tilted" plane. Think of it like wallpaper and the text on the wallpaper is directional. The text is part of that wallpaper and can't be re-oriented.

    I upgraded from the DVD disk I bought about a year ago. I never got my install finished until recently.

    DarQue, Thanks for the info, I'll make that change.

    Any way to change mappoint so that the arrow turns and not the map?

    Under Settings >> Navigation there is an option to rotate map to direction of movement (something like that). Just uncheck it.

    That's not going to make the street names align them selves vertically, though.
    Your suggestion actually causes the map to rotate, the street names with it, which is what the OP wants to prevent...
