you will get a message in LMCE when it sees your XP computer, what did you answer when you got that message?

LMCE automatically looks for windows/smb shares. When you turn on your XP machine, LMCE will flash a message up saying something like:

"Windows Share Found on ip". It will then ask you what you would like to do with the share. One of these options is "Use Linux MCEs Folder structure". It will then ask you for a username and password.

If you selected this option, the videos should show up in the media browser.

If you chose 'use LMCE folder structure' the files will not show up unless you actually move them to the LMCE folders that was created on the Win-XP machine.
This is where many have problems/fail to understand
