What value do you have for My Video in the following locations? Is it REG_SZ?
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Open in new window

Do you have folder redirection configured?
