I love love love me my portable hard drive. Take it to work, take it home, take it to my friends' places. PortableApps, wahey. No, women don't find me that attractive. But I've noticed something weird: When I try to play music on that drive in WMP, a "My Music" folder is inexplicably created in the root folder of the drive. Every time. I do not want it there. I delete it, I go back and play tracks later, and the goddamn thing creates it again. Why? And how do I make it stop? Yes, yes, I've installed PortableVLC (don't really want to install local media apps on my work PC), but I'm not crazy about it. Goddamn thing won't save settings -- keeps reverting to 5.1 audio for DVD files no matter how many times I reset it, which sucks ass, can't set it to 2.1 audio, which appears to leave my subwoofer mute and therefore sucks ass, won't start in skinned mode, which is beyond sucking ass, and won't allow me to set it to not automatically load subtitles for movies, which sucks slightly less ass but still sucks ass. Besides, right now it's a matter of pride. It's the principle of the thing. I must keep this folder from spawning like so many undead clowns. I must stop it or die trying. Is there a way? Or if not, is there another portable alternative to VLC that works for major media formats, including VOB files?

Curious, George: Your favorite media player sucks. Okay, so I got a problem. Windows Media Player is creating folders on my USB drive. "What's this," you gasp? "Yes," I reply!
