Media Player Cannot Find Music


My problem is similar to the problem that amanda wise was experiencing except that i am running windows 7. After uninstalling and reinstalling windows 7 for a different problem, i lost my library in wmp. The files were backed up to an external hard drive. Now i cannot get wmp to go and get the files from the external drive. I installed musicmatch from an old disk and it had no problem finding all of my music. I can rip music from a cd with wmp but, a lot of my files were from vinyl and and it is time consuming to replace all of them. I prefer to use wmp because musicmatch will no longer support anything on the web.

Media Center Cannot Find Music

I have 100+ cd's stored as wav files under my music. They were ripped using exact audio copy and accuraterip. I have repeatedly pointed media center at the directory and instructed it to find my music files but it has not found one. There are currently 102 artist directories with close to 200 albums and more than 2500 songs in my music directory. Media center cannot find my video files either but it had no problem finding my pictures.

How do i get media center to see my music and video files?

Media Player 12 Music Files Disappearing

For valentines day hubby built me a new computer and put windows 7 on it, which i am highly starting to regret. Anyhow i put my music i had backed up on my back up drive and it works fine, no problems. Then yesterday i ripped 2 c. D's on to it. I thought everything was fine shut down the computer. Then last night i went to play them and neither of them would show up on my media player, but both were in my music folder.

I deleted them and ripped them again and they showed up on the media player but the second i exit out of the media and go back to it they are gone, vanished, poof. I have tried restore media library and restarted computer come back they load on to the media player i exit out of the player and go back and once again gone. I have tried everything i can think of and still nothing is working and i am getting highly frustrated.

Unable To Stream Music In Media Player

"my media player was working fine, then suddenly i got this error message. I didn't change anything, but now can't stream music. "How can i correct the following error message? As far as i know i didn't change anything. Brand new computer, pre loaded with windows 7 and ms office 2010 windows media player cannot play the file. A network firewall might be preventing the player from opening the file by using the udp transport protocol. If you typed a url in the open url dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:").

Media Player Won't Recognize Music Cd

Windows 7 / windows media player don't recognize when a music (purchased) cd is in the cd-rom or dvd-rom drive. When i put in the disc it doesn't ask me if i want to play / rip or any other function. I checked in the computer setting to see if it shows a cd in the drive and that doesn't even work. Windows 7 professional is what i have installed and i have a lite-on cd burner and a dvd burner (generic) that came with the computer. Any one know what's going on?

Media Player 12 Won't Keep Music In The Library

This is really a terrible product. I upgraded to windows 7 during the holiday, and the wmp loaded my 75 gigs of music right away. Shortly thereafter it unloaded all of it - i could literally see it draining from my library. Now it will put something in the library if i pull it up from the hard drive and hit play. But it won't keep it in the library.

I've reinstalled wmp twice, with no success. Please tell us that a patch is on the way, or something. Or should all of us just head on over to apple?

Media Player Do Not Stream Mp3 Files To Lg Bd390 Player

Windows media player streams video, pictures to lg bd390 player, but not mp3 files. How can i get to work? I am successfully using wmp12 as upnp server over wireless network to stream video and pictures to lg bd390 blu ray player. However, while the bd390 shows audio file, on selection, it times out suggesting "network congestion issues". Is there a fix to this problem. By the way, nero homemedia 4 essential, which comes with player, does play all media types, but seems to be messing up my network in other ways. I would prefer to get wmp12 to work. I think nero product uses wmp12.

Automatic Media Information In Media Player Stops

I'm running wmp12 on win7. I placed a bunch of mp3s in "my music" folder, then went into windows media player and in options for "automatic media information updates for files" i checked all the boxes (with the sub-selection of "only add missing information"). So as i anticipated, wmp started to organize all my music into nice little folders (like itunes). But then after getting about half way through, it has just stopped. So half my music is organized and half is not. Does anyone have any idea why it stopped and how i can get it to finnish the job?

How To Find Media Center?

I am asking this on behalf of my friend who came to me for help because he is hardly computer literate. Home premium win 7. About 4 months old. He said at one time he was playing around with windows media center, thinking that it was media player. Today he realizes that he cannot find wmc any more. I told him about vista method of locating ehshell.exe.

Start > search box, enter ehome > enter > scroll the list for it.

It did not work for him. Entering ehome in search box did not bring up c:windowsehomewindow. Can someone please tell me how to call up wmc?

Media Player Gone

Yesterday i began having problems with media player 11. I tried to get help from microsoft and hp with no luck. I tried to uninstall it thinking i could reinstall it and solve the problem. I couldn't find an uninstaller anywhere, yes i tried the control panel. So i tried to delete the whole file thinking i could just download and install another. I couldn't delete it until i changed the permissions and restarted the computer.

Now my media player is gone and none of the downloads i'm getting are working. All i'm finding are for vista or xp and an update for 7n etc. Does anyone know where i can find windows media player that will install on windows 7? I have other media players that work, but i'm more familiar with the windows one.

Media Player 11 Or 12

My wife hates. Hates the new media player that's on her windows 7 os. I know you can disable it. My question is if i disable the player for her will i be able to install media player 9 on her system? As a side note, i followed instructions from a helpful person on this forum to stop my media player 11 from adding all my sound bytes from a recording program i have on my windows xp. It worked for a day but now the media player is at it again, it constantly adds gigs of sound bytes to the media player library.

I just reverted back to media player 9 and i'm waiting to see if it happens on that version. I like the media player but if it continues to add those files to the library i'll have to drop windows media player. If anyone has done a search on problems people are having with windows media players on the net. It's literally millions of people that hate these players lol. Ok maybe it's not so funny.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?

Skins For Media Player 12

I asked about this a couple of weeks ago, and received an answer. Unfortunately, i've been away from the forums for awhile and am sorry i didn't respond then. Anyway, i downloaded a skin for media player 12 and now none of the skins work. Well, all i get is a white box in the shape of the skin and if i hover the mouse over the correct places i can use the controls. If i click on skin chooser the player stops working altogether. A window appears saying that windows will stop the program and search for a solution.

Someone told me in this forum to uninstall media player from control panel under turn windows features on or off but it didn't work. Evidently this doesn't actually uninstall media player, it just deactivates it. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I promise i will keep in touch. I would like to thank whomever helped the last time, i shouldn't have left you hanging. By the way, i am running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Media Player 12 Issues

I've recently purchased a laptop with windows 7 home premium. I'm a fan of music and as such i have a wma lossless catalog consisting of over 1000 cds. I'm also a fan of album art over pretty lighting effects. I've scanned each cd's cover art to show 960 x 960 jpeg clarity. So far windows 7 works well except for windows media player. I don't want to have to re-rip my entire collection to another format (just reverting back to wmp 11 would be acceptable).

Library not loading correctly, if song title doesn't match online content completely then music goes to "unknown" folder. Am unable to view my own album art (960 x 960) versus online album art (sub 300x300). No advanced tag editor? If these issues cannot be resolved, how do i install wmp 11 on a windows 7 machine? Very disappointed so far.

Media Player Is Corrupted

I purchased a new hard drive from a local computer store. They removed my vista system and put windows 7 ultimate on as operating system. They slaved my old drive as a e: local but had reformatted it. I have had no problems with downloading media but some of my files show the media corrupted message when i try to use them. Is there a easy fix for this problem or if i purchase a ultimate upgrade disk would that repair the damage? I have tried to use the fix it micros, and windows updates but the problem is still there.

Media Player 12 Library Help

I am not able to delete any of the sample music that came pre installed on windows 7. I deleted the files from the my music folder/my videos but i cant delete them from windows media player 12 or windows media center. I would like to know how to do this. When i hit delete on them nothing happens same thing if i drag them to the trash. That's not close to the big problem though. I am not able to add any music to the library without it all getting deleted once i close wmp 12. How can i get around this?

It is a brand new computer i just bought it. It came installed with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. It has no virus or anything like that wrong with it.microsoft sure did mess up with wmp 12, wmp 11 was great but they font have it for windows 7 that im aware of. I also tried to re-download wmp 12 but i couldn't find the link to download it. They kept trying to make me download a plug in for it instead of the player itself. Since there's such little problems with this operating system like this im already regretting not going with a mac.

Media Player 12 And Powerdvd 8

I recently upgraded my laptop from xp to windows 7 ultimate. Now i can't seem to play dvds. Not sure if i have one problem or several. I have tried using the included windows media player 12, and i get video with no sound. I used cyberlink's powerdvd 8 with xp, and tried re-installing that but it no longer works either. It starts the video feed, with no sound, then crashes and says "this copy protected disc can not be played when the tv out function is enabled"

Thinking i might have a display setting issue in windows i looked under hardware->devices-> and under display. I see the same thing in both "generic pnp monitor" "with standard vga adapter". That's it.
I've already updated all drivers.

Media Player Help And Support

My windows media player doesn't allow me to make a playlist. When i rip a cd, make my changes i then drag it into the playlist and nothing happens. I just doesn't move as a single file or a batch when all is selected. I did everything i could think of then went to help and got the following message: "you're not connected to online help, which shows you our latest content. Check your internet connection, and then try to connect to online help again. If you still see this message, the online help may be temporarily unavailable. "

My connection is very good and a friend checked and online help is available. I did restart computer and also my modem as a "what the heck" effort and all is the same.

So really there are 2 problems.

1) media player, new with this computer which i bought about 1 month ago
2) online help and support which i can't reach through the media player or the start button-both routes give same message.

My internet hookup is working well. Got any ideas?
