No 'Watch Folder' option in Media Center?

Windows 7 is my first experience with Windows Media Center, and though it can't play absolutely all my media it seems quite useful. I pointed it at my iTunes folder and told it to add the files in there to my media library and all was well.

However, if I then rip a new CD in iTunes, it doesn't appear in Media Center. Using the help sent me to the MS site which refers to setting WMC to 'watch' a folder via the Settings menu. This information seems to refer to the Vista version of WMC, because my version doesn't seem to have a 'watch' option, only an option to search and import.

Am I missing something obvious? It seems like a pretty fundamental thing for it to do!
