Is there any way of changing where Vista looks for media files.  I know how to add extra directories but my wife complains she cannot find the photos when she has to drill through numerous folders presented in the folder list.  It seems if you create a folder for say "music" and one for "tv shows" and one for "videos" etc then all these folders are presented for you to wade through when you select photos.
Now why would I create folders called "music" etc and put bloddy photos in them!  Why does MCE seem to think that any added folder is automatically a place to look for all added media!
help me get this cleaned up please so I have only one folder under photos, one under music etc.

You go to Settings, Library Setup and select "Add folder to watch". I have video, pictures and music added from my Windows Home Server and they are shown in the correct categories...

As I said I know how to add folders to watch.  What I want to do is make these the default folders and remove the "My Music", "My Photos" etc folders.
