Media Organizer and Media Server

The Media Organizer

Figure 4: The Media Organizer

Before you can start viewing your media files on the TV, you will have to install and configure the Media Organizer (Figure 4) and the Media Server software on your PC. The Media Organizer, as the name implies, organizes your media files in an easily searchable database. The Media Server component actually shares the files to the NMP-4000 box.

When you start the Media Organizer for the first time, it will do a "Media Scan" which scans your hard drive for all your picture, music and video files. This can take several minutes so I suggest that you get a snack while this is going on.

The Media Organizer can rip MP3s straight from an audio CD and rip the video files from Video CDs. But video cannot be ripped directly from DVDs.
