No, they're not allowed, but I've found you can change it manually in the registry. Always be careful changing the registry. Mistakes can break Windows!
First, make sure the network share is mapped to a drive letter:

  1. Open "My Computer".
  2. Open the "Tools" menu and select "Map Network Drive...".
  3. Select a drive letter (eg. "V:" for video), type the path to the network video folder (eg. "\\Server\Videos"), and press "OK".
  4. You should now have a drive letter showing exactly what's in your network video folder.
  5. Create a folder on the network share to receive the videos (eg. "V:\Everio MediaBrowser").
Next, modify the Everio MediaBrowser settings.
  1. Open the Windows "Start" menu and press "Run...".
  2. Type "regedit" and press "OK".
  3. Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ PIXELA\ Everio MediaBrowser\ IMXLIBRARY
  4. Double-click the "SAVEPATH" entry, change the value to a path using the drive letter you created above (eg. "V:\Everio MediaBrowser"), and press "OK". This folder must exist, so create it if you haven't already
  5. Select the "SAVEPATH2" entry and press "Delete". This prevents MediaBrowser from deciding a local drive is a better destination.
  6. Close the program.
Now you can download video into the library on the network.
  1. Plug in your camcorder.
  2. Select "Playback on PC".
  3. When MediaBrowser starts, press Backup at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Select the volumes to backup and press "Next".
  5. MediaBrowser should now say the destination is the network drive. Press "Next".
I have not attempted to import existing videos from a network share yet. That could be another challenge.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this Mark! Excellent! By the way, I am importing existing videos right now and it seems to work without issue. The lame part is that you have to go to each folder one by one and drag in the video folder. No "bulk import" available. Also, you have to drill down to the "9897789283738943789398" folder and drag that folder in, as opposed to the folder above it - ex: 20110413

Check weather you've mistakenly changed the contact number. If not try deleting the contact and creating it again. Remember to write the contact on a piece of paper first. Thumb me up if I helped. :)

Transfered my itunes library from a G4 to transfer to a PC but files not showing up


library transfer only transfers the playlist index file. You need to transfer the actual media files through Finder to the external device (be it a hard drive or flash or a network connection) then update the iTunes library on the destination machine.

Error message when I try to play a cd,dvd or rip


Before we try blaming a faulty cd/dvd unit lets check out faulty Windows Media Player Software. Is Media Player up to date? Try installing iTunes set as default. That will force the cd/dvd association to iTunes. See if the player works or what the error is...If it works...Then re-open Media player make it the default again and see it what it does. or This is from the Microsoft site: Windows Media Player cannot find the file. This error message usually indicates the link from an item in Media Library to its associated digital media file is broken. Items in Media Library are links to digital media files that are stored on your computer, a network drive, a removable storage card, an Internet server, or another location. Links can be broken for one of the following reasons: * A link to a temporary file from the Internet cache (for example, a file from the Temporary Internet Files folder) was added to Media Library and that file was later deleted. * A link to a digital media file was added to Media Library and the file was later deleted. To repair a link Do one of the following: * If you deleted or moved the file, replace it to its original location. * If you moved the file, right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then enter the new location of the file. To delete a link Do one of the following: * Right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then select the Remove file from Media Library check box. * Right-click the item in Media Library, and then click Delete from Library. Good Luck, Tim
