Cannot Add Picture Files To Library In Wmp 12 And Media Center

Cannot add picture files to library in windows media player 12 and media center i am not able to see any of my pictures in windows media player or media center. I have tried removing folders from the library and then adding them again. They then show up, but disappear when i close the program and open it again, even though the folders show up in the library. The files show up fine in other applications. I have also noticed that the library retains some old filenames when i try to delete them but cannot open them. Any suggestions?

How To Assign A Thumbnail Image To .avi Movie File In Media Center?

How do i assign a thumbnail image to an . Avi file to show up in "movies" section? When i go to the "movies" screen in windows media center, the files are designated with a plain colored box with the title of the movie, and that's it. I know there is a way to assign an image to the movie, just like media center shows the album covers when i go to my music library. I cannot figure it out. There is no field for an image in the metadata, and i have tried putting a .jpg with the same name as the movie title and that has not worked either. Can anyone help?

Removing Sound Files From Wmp 12

I recently let wmp 12 do a scan on my system for random mp3 files. When scanning, it picked up all the system sound files. (Ding. Chord. And a few hundred others) and added them to the library of wmp 12. I wish to remove these files from wmp 12, due to the fact its playing havoc with my backup to the mp3 library, which is pretty extensive, and the autosync always includes the system sound files, which obviously, i do not want in the mp3 library.

"Trusted installer" wont let me delete the files out of my library, which in a way is good, but it doesn't help me in removing the sounds out of the library i don't want to delete the sound files, just remove them out of the library. I've tried everything. But nothing short of deleting the whole media center, and beginning again. Anyone have any ideas?

Media Center Live Tv No Picture, Just Sound

The live tv function in media center gives me a message that says "your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. Please choose another tv input source. " I can only hear the sound but there's no.

My tv tuner is a ati theater 650 pro. It is connected to my cable box through s-video. My tv is also connected to the cable box through hdmi cable. The weird thing is, the message disappears and picture finally shows up when i unplug the hdmi cable from my tv or from the cable box itself. The picture also shows up when the tv is turned on. When i first configured this, i was able to successfully see picture, sound, and even tested the recording capabilities with no problem. I tried to reconfigure the tv signal in media center several times and updated the tv tuner's drivers but to no avail.

No Preview Thumbnails For Avi Files

I'm using 64 bit windows 7. I'm creating some avi animations with the ultra fractal fractal exploration software. These avi files don't show thumbnail preview images in windows explorer, they just show a default image of a piece of film. It seems that if i edit my avi file into a wmv movie file using windows live movie maker, then i do see thumbnail images for the source avi files in windows explorer from then on. But i'd like to see the previews by default. Note that i do see preview thumbnails for most (but not all) files that are in the quicktime mov format. And i do see preview thumnails for all files in the mpg format. But not for the avi files.

Dvd Maker Avi Files Corrupt

I have just found out about windows dvd maker and decided to give it a go. I tried to insert a file and found out it wouldn't allow me to select an mp4 so i decided to render each scene of my dvd into avi format instead of mp4 but as soon as i try and select them i get this error message:

"0 files were successfully added. 1 file could not be added. The file c:usersedwarddesktopuntitled. Avi is not a supported file type and cannot be imported. "

I installed a codec to try and get it to work but previous to this it came up with a similar error saying that the file might be corrupt.

What can i do as its really annoying me :( i have rendered the video as a wmv and it works but it annoys me because it isn't as good quality as the avi that i rendered.

Distinguishing Sound File Formats

Does windows 7 provide a method of 'sourcing' what  file format music is sent after being purchased online? Recently, i purchased several 'recordings' from i tunes and burned them to cd for traveling across the usa, only to find out that these files are a different format that is customarily played through a vehicles sound system or any portable cd player, how would i find the file format of the music purchased, as well as finding the file format  acceptable to whatever device is going to be used
For playback purposes.

Cannot Install Wmp 11

I'm still on wmp 10 for some reason and i wanted to connect my pc with 360 to stream videos. I downloaded the update but it was telling me to go get the rollup update 2 or something, so i attempted to install that and it told me i needed to go get .net framework 1. 1 and .net framework 1. 1 sp1. I went to download those and install them, but it's telling me that "the upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program". I've googled it, tried all sorts, uninstalled sp3 and tried it and nothing.

Issue With Wmp 12

Yesterday a friend of mine gave me a flash drive which contained a couple of music albums that i wanted to copy to my music folder.

Before i copy the albums to the desired destination (its path being like this c:usersmynamemusicartistnamealbumname ) , i temporarily copied them on my desktop (i wanted to change some things [important: i did not change any names] before copying them to the desired destination) and from there i listened to a couple of the songs , thus adding just those two songs to wmp's music library.

So far so good. But ultimately, i moved the albums where i wanted, and restarted wmp 12 in order for it to update its library to include the two new albums, as it did.

The problem now is that the two songs i had listened to when the music files where still on the desktop (or , if you want, in the desktop folder) cannot be played and wmp gives me an error message that informs me that the file i am trying to play is not found in the directory c:usersmynamedesktopartistnamealbumnamerack. Mp3 , which is true since i moved it to the desired destination. However, for some reason i cannot delete these two faulty entries from wmp's library!

I recreated the destination path that wmp is looking at, when i do this the tracks can be played like normal, then i tried to delete their entries again but with no results.

So, to sum up, i have two albums in my wmp's library that their registered path for the tracks they contain is c:usersmynamemusicartistnamealbumnamerackname. Mp3, except for one song from each album (2 songs in total) . The exceptions' registered path is c:usersmynamedesktopartistnamealbumnamerack. Mp3 , and for some reason cannot be altered nor delete these specific entries from wmp and then add them back again from the right destination path, which means that if i want to listen to these two songs i need to have two folders on my desktop , each containing the respective song.

My question is : why can i not delete the faulty entries from wmp 12? Is there a way to do so ? Because right now wmp does not look in my music folder in order to play the 2 songs, rather in the desktop folder.

Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

Folder Picture Customization

I have windows 7 professional running upgraded from xp home. We have music on an external hard drive and on the computer. On both the external and the internal hard drive all our folders we had customized with the cd cover on the folder. It stayed present on them for about 3 weeks then out of no where most of the customizations fell off. This has happened with xp twice and now with windows 7 pro. I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Unable To Delete Albums In Wmp 12

After deleting the album from win media player 12 the album remains with the individual songs still listed however they cannot be played. When clicking on the songs i get the following: 

"Windows media player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted. "

I tried going into windows features and unchecking "media features", restarting, then rechecking media features and this does not change anything. Any clues?

Desktop Picture Change To Black

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black! My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing. I've not been able to figure out why this happens. I can set a desktop theme even, download one from the internet, the wallpaper is set to whatever the theme sets it to, looks great, then within about 10 minutes or so, pow! The background goes to black! Any idea why this happens?

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Wmp Play To Stops After Hour

I had recorded a tv program using windows media centre - duration 1hr 26 mins. After completion of the recording i used the wmp play to feature to stream the tv file to a samsung led tv that supports dlna connectivity. After 1 hour of play, the stream stopped automatically and could not continue. I am however able to watch the entire 96 mins using windows media centre directly on the pc. I checked the event logs for the time the streaming stopped and found the following:

Warning level message:

The windows media player network sharing service cannot process the request for uri

'http://[::1]:10243/wmpnssv4/2299935590/ezvemjlfquq1ltdfmemtndq1my05nki0lti2qzbgnui2qzc5nh0umc44.jpg?Albumart=true, formatid=13'

From ip address '::1' due to error '0x80070490'.

Error level message:

Proximity detection failed due to unknown error '0x80004004'. The best proximity time detected was -1 milliseconds.

The error message occurred about 90 seconds after the warning.

I have noticed this in the past as well (streaming for video ending after 1hr) but never played much attention to it. It appears to be occurring with video playback only, as i'm been able to successfully stream hours of mp3 music to the same samsung led tv.

Picture Slide Inside Of Folder

On windows xp there was a way to make a picture slide inside of a folder. So what it would look like is. Say you have 10 pictures inside a folder. Upon opening that folder. There would be one big picture in the center of the screen, and underneath were tiny icons of all your other pictures. And all you had to do was click the left or right button to browse through them. Or simply click on another picture to view it.

Is there a way to do this in windows 7? Or am i stuck with just large icons and the slide show option?

No Audio On Mpeg 4 Files In Wmp 12

I have identified that the audio for some of my mpeg4 home videos shot on my mobile phone will not play in wmp12, however they will play in quicktime and real-player. These video files will not play in media center.

The audio for some of my mpeg4 home vidoes shot on another device will however play. Clearly this is to do with the audio format that my phone records (only i do not know what format that is). Does anyone know of an audio decoder add-in that i can download to fix this? I have tried converting an mpeg4 file to wmv in realplayer and then playing it back in wmp12 and media center and that works fine, but clearly i don't want to do that for all of my videos!
