Hi, i'm currently tidying my movies up, and its going well, but i have a small issue, i have about 30 movies that are in folders, due to the fact they are split in two, and although the folder itself is named correctly, xbmc just will not scan any of the folders?
Has anyone got any suggestions as to how i can get them scanned, or indeed a program i can use to join the two parts together to make one file?
Thanks for all assistance!

if you have them in two parts you need to enable file stacking and name the two parts something like this,

moviename1.mkv
moviename2.mkv

In order for stacking to work the only thing that can differ from the parts is the part identifier. If you need further clarification check the wiki and look for something like movie stacking.

I use Avidemux to join video files. It's really straightforward to use (if you're just joining 2 halves), free and I've never had a problem with any films it's joined.
