I have 2 other drives with movies and I placed the paths into the storage directories at Mythtv and even placed links inside the default directory pointing to the 2 folders but it says no movies... when I place a movie in the default directory it works fine. Thanks

Likely permissions issues, please post the permissions of the directory you placed the files in and all directories above it in the tree.

your Storage directory is incorrect. It either needs to have read and execute permissions for everyone, or be owned by the mythtv group (not user) and have group permissions of read and execute.
