Hello all,


I have an external hard drive connected to my Time Capsule that is loaded with a bunch of VIDEO_TS folders of all my DVDs, and I have that drive aliased in my "Movies" folder on my MacBook Pro, so when I open Front Row, it points to my external HDD, and everything is hunky-dory.  But I also have other files in this HDD (a bunch of JPG files) that are also being seen by Front Row.  For reasons that are too boring to get into, I don't want to separate the files into different locations, I would like to keep them together.  But my goal is to be able to somehow block Front Row from seeing these JPG files and just display the list of my DVDs instead.  Is there any way to tell my alias to block out the JPGs, or some way to hide the JPGs from that particular alias, or something along those lines?


Thanks for any help I may get!



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
