Hmm, looks kinda cool :)

Might give it a go tomorrow.

How do I exit the program? I only seem to be able to end task or hibernate. Also, does it support the mouse? I don't see a mouse pointer.

If I specify that my movies are in c:\movies, selecting the "movies" shows me a folder called "movies", which I have to select, before I get my movie list. What I am saying is, when there is only one location for movies, it should show you the list of movies, and not the location name - otherwise it is two clicks to access my movies.

It would be nice if the xml config file was formatted in a way that could edited in notepad easily, instead of just one long line (pretty-print format).

The config utility doesn't seem to allow you to change the "name" attribute. For me it always says "DVD Drive", regardless what I enter as the name. And so I have to edit the xml by hand instead.
