ok it was just a side idea
Ember Media Manager is the all in one media manager for the popular XBMC. An open source media manager for Windows.

Have you sorted them from videos and movies then maybe rebooted it?
As I said I haven't tried your method so can't fully help with screen shots and stuff like that
Which version of OpenELEC  do you have?
OpenELEC 3.0 is built to support XBMC Frodo 12.1 and almost every part of the core OS has been updated and improved since the 2.0 release. The project now supports a broader range of media centre hardware

Take a look at the screenshots here is this what yours looks like?
