Hi there

I'm having a problem with MediaHome 4. I've installed it and I allowed it to index all my media files. After that, there was still a lot of hard drive activity, so I left my PC on overnight to finish what it was busy doing. When I woke up the next morning, everything seemed fine, so I switched off my PC and went to work. Every time that I switch on my PC now, the hard drive activity doesn't stop after logging into Windows, no matter how long I leave the PC. The only way the activity stops is if I stop the Nero MediaHome 4 Service though View Local Services in Control Panel. When I switch on the service again, the same thing happens. According to Task Manager, my C-drive is running at 100% and my media drive is barely being accessed. Surely MediaHome shouldn't index my media files on each boot. Can anybody help, please?

Regards,
Sparkie

I think that Mediahome 4 is not compatible with Win 8.
You can check this sentence at Chat Line, and ask for a solution.

When you do, please let us know what they say.

Hi Sparkie77,

Unfortunately Nero MediaHome 4 does not support Windows 8, you can get detailed information from our website:

Thanks for the reply guys. I wasn't sure if MediaHome 4 was compatible with Windows 8. I got it for free when I purchased Nero 12, which is compatible with Windows 8. So I took a chance and installed it. Everything is working - my TV and PlayStation 3 can see and play all my media files - so it will be a real shame if I can't use it because of the hard drive activity.

I think I found a workaround. I'll be testing again tonight and will let you know if I got it working.

It seems like Windows 8's indexing and Nero MediaHome 4's indexing are fighting with each other. Since I can not do much about MediaHome's indexing, I tweaked the Windows indexing to exclude the NeroMediaHomeUser.4 user's folder. It seems like things are more back to normal now. Guess I can work for Nero now and make MediaHome Windows 8 compatible.
