I recently installed TiVo Desktop 2.5 and tried to transfer some .mpg files (mpeg 2 I assume based on the extention) that I'd taken with my digital camera, to my TiVo. I put them into "My TiVo Recordings" folder on my computer and could see them in my computer folder in the now playing list on TiVo, but when I click on them to transfer them to TiVo to play them I get a message that it failed and to look at the ToDo list to find out why. There I see this message:
"The program was not transferred onto this DVR because it was not found on the [computer name]."
The actual files, not shortcuts are in the My Tivo Recordings folder on my computer, and I understand that the .mpg (mpeg 2 files) should work without buying the upgrade to TiVo Desktop Plus.
Does anyone know what's wrong?
