Default Streaming to Xbox360 with Vista.

Does vista stream movies and music to my xbox360 from the drive the operating system is on, or can it stream from a secondary drive as well? Because currently Windows Media 11 only stream off of my C: drive(OS runs off C), and my C: drive is only 100GB but my secondary drive is 500GB. Well here is the main problem, I want to get a raptor drive for OS but it will only be 160GB when my secondary would be 750GB(containing all my music and movies), and in that setup I can't stream anything to my xbox360

You just need to add the folders into Windows Media Player. Hit the arrow under Library then "Add to Library..." and click the "Add..." button. Choose the folders you want to add, and it should show up in your 360.

Nice!! I will try that when I get home from work tommorow(I work nightshift). So does that also work with Vista? Because I am getting Windows Vista Home Premium.

Yeah, it should, it's still the same Windows Media Player 11.
