Scan disk for media

This feature searches local drives for supported media files. Once RealPlayer finds the files, the import wizard adds them to the Library. Note: The files found through this process are NOT automatically uploaded to the Cloud. Also, the files themselves are not stored in RealPlayer; RealPlayer simply maps to the file's location on your hard drive.

To open the import wizard, open RealPlayer and click the  logo in the upper left corner  and select File > Scan Disk For Media

Customize the search with these selections from the "Scan Disk For Media" dialog:
