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?

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.

Media Player 12 Dropping Files

Just in the last couple of days i've noticed that albums i know should be in the wmp 12 list are missing. They are still available in my music, but the player no longer posts them when it lists the albums available. For example-a downloaded album from amazon that i purchased about 10 days ago was fine until yesterday, when it disappeared. If i try opening it from the my music file, it plays just fine, but the album still won't list in wmp.

I even tried burning the album to cd, and then ripping it back to wmp- which worked fine until i closed and re-opened wmp-and then no album. Very frustrating. I'm tempted to use the "restore media files" button in tools, but i'm afraid i'll end up with a mess. Anyone know what the problem is? I forgot to mention that i'm running windows 7 home premium 64-bit.

Windows Media Player Cannot Burn The Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary verify the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the last device driver.

If you guys tell me check and make sure the cd burner is connected;been there done that.
If you guy tell me to uninstall the device and reinstall;been there done that
If you guys tell me to try brand new disks;been there done that as well.
I have lowered the burn speed ect.

I have done everything possible. I can burn a disk one time or a few then next disk i get that error. I have yet to burn the system restore disk and i am afraid to for fear of getting that error. I am thinking of getting external burner since no one things its a good idea test things out before putting them out.

When trying to burn a cd wmp goes through the motions but only burns a some of the music and not others then ejects the cd with the message above. Some songs on the burn list have audio codec info some do not. I believe this makes a difference but am not sure.

Upgraded to a creative sound blaster x fi sb0790 pci sound card and the mp3's still skip 30 seconds before the end of the song. This sound card was on the compatible hardware list so. That tells me there is a problem with windows media player. Not the sound card driver.

Avchd .mts Files Playing Problem With Media Player 12

I am new to this forum, would greatly appreciate anyone's advice or expertise. Windows media player12 is no longer playing *. Mts files on my computer. My operating system is windows 7 which came installed with wmp 12, purchased 3 months ago. I have not had any problems with this until recently -i have many *. Mts video files saved on my computer (transferred directly from my avchd canon hf10 camcorder to the desktop). They have always played in wmp 12 without a hitch until now (they would load up instantly when i double-clicked on them).

The appearance of the thumbnails for each file have been unaffected in windows explorer, but when i double-click on them (wmp 12 is my default player) all that happens is that wmp 12 loads up but does not initiate playing of the file. It becomes perpetually stuck in the "opening media" message and a psychedelic series of never-ending circles is seen in the lower left corner. Occasionally i will get the "server execution failed" message as well to mix things up. Wmp 12 is playing other files normally on my computer, including . M4v and . Avi files. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing wmp 12 through the windows 7 control panel, but this did not fix the problem.

I tried deactivating the "network sharing" for wmp 12, but this did not change anything. Interestingly, when i query the technical details of my wmp 12 copy(from the help menu), it lists several video codecs but none are listed as supporting *. Mts files (though none seem to list *. Avi support either, and *. Avi files have been playing fine). The mts files do open up in windows live movie maker, though occasionally they are choppy or only half the screen is presented. I have not done anything obviously damaging to my computer recently. I installed an epson scanner yesterday, not sure if this would affect anything but i un-installed all of its components/associated programs and this did not seem to help anything.

I tried installing the k-lite codec pack today but this did not fix anything, so i uninstalled that as well. Help i am not sure if i am just missing a codec for these files? My understanding was that windows 7 comes with all the codecs/files preloaded in order to play avchd movie files such as *. Mts, would these have been re-installed when i did the re-install of wmp 12? Could a file be corrupted somewhere in the registry that is interfering with this normal function? If so, how could i repair this? Could the k-lite codec pack have damaged anything in my registry or pre-installed codecs? I am not sure if that is what has happened since the problem with mts playback preceded installing this codec pack.

Stop Automatic Updates For Uninstalled Software

How do i stop automatic updates for uninstalled software? Once upon a time, before i knew what net. Framework was, i downloaded it and have been using automatic updates to keep my system current. After discovering exactly what net. Framework was for i removed (uninstalled) it from my system. That process did not remove the automatic update for net. Framework from whatever stores my system update requirements.

I have been looking for something that may rescan my system to make it current, or for some other method of canceling the auto update feature for that application. I have updates set to notify for the time being and would prefer to reactivate it but don't want to download unneeded patches over and over. Running xp pro version 2002 with service pack3 and all updates applied.

Error When Trying To Burn Cd - Windows Media Player Cannot Burn Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I just burned a cd with absolutely no problems at all. Using the same type of cd, brand new, i attempted to burn another cd and got this error message: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish.

If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I've shut down all programs running, restarted my computer, changed the burn speed under the devices tab, everything i knew to do and all the things i've read through these forums, no such luck, still getting the exact same message. Any clue why my cd burner has decided to just stop working for me?

Lifecam Cinema Stop Recording Audio

I purchased a lifecam cinema to record a conference that i was attending. Install went as expected, i updated to the latest version of the software lifecam3. 22.exe and installed the latest hardware patches in cinema fw 1033_3. 20.exe. I recorded 4 days at the conference and when i returned home and started to look at the videos all of the files had differing points where the audio just stopped being recorded.

It seems that any adjustments to the zoom or pan settings cause the audio recording to stop. I have tried recording with debut video capture and it had similar problems where the audio and the video got way ot of step and the software reported dropping video frames but the audio was intact. Anyone else having these sort of issues.

Cd/dvd Player Or External Hard Drives Don't Stop Running

My camera displays images upside down after upgrading to windows 7 64bit and cd/dvd player or external hard drives don't stop running after quitting attempted access. I have an asus g50vt-x1 laptop that is a 64-bit machine. It had windows vista home premium 64bit installed on it and the camera worked properly with it.

I ran the windows 7 update advisory on it and it said i could upgrade to windows 7 64bit. After upgrading to windows 7 professional 64 bit the camera images are all upside down. I have contacted asus about the problem and they have sent me updated drivers, but the images are still upside down.could windows 7 be causing this problem as i know it worked fine in vista?

I have also noticed that my dvd/cd drive and external hard drives don't stop running after i exit an application. When this happens i can't eject the dvd/cd or safely remove the drive from the computer.

Explorer Stop When Copying Files

Windows explorer (and some parts of windows itself -_-) grinds to a stop when copying files from my computer's hard drive to an external hard drive. I am currently using windows 7 enterprise k (x86)

This is a problem i've been seeing from windows xp through windows 7. When i try to copy some files from my computer to my external hard drive windows explorer starts copying the file, then suddenly just stops.

I've seen a lot of programs crash on my computer, and i usually just press ctrl+shift+esc (sorry, i don't know what z‘—'¦¬z is called in english oss) and kill the process that crashed.

But when i try to kill explorer.exe:

1. It won't die. i.e. It's still in the process list, and i can still see the window that crashed
Even if i kill the mother explorer.exe (not just the one that shows me the window, the one that shows me the taskbar and desktop etc. ) The taskbar disappears, but when i start it up again the explorer.exe that crashed is still there.

2. It stays there forever. I've tried ignoring it all day long, and it's still there.

3. Windows becomes very buggy. After explorer.exe crashes, a lot more bugs that wern't there spring up, although i don't remember exactly what. I seem to remember that there were a lot more of those in windows xp than windows 7.

4. Windows doesn't even shutdown. I try pressing shutdown in the start-menu and it either takes forever to understand i wanted it to shutdown, or sometimes ignores me completely. I've also tried entering "shutdown /s" in cmd.exe and it does shutdown, only to get stuck on logging off.
Same with just pressing logging off, too.

And every time this happens, if i force-shutdown and try the same file again, it won't work that time either. Sometimes copying the file to the root of my external hard drive and moving it to the directory i originally wanted to copy it to works, but not always.

This is very, very irritating and i wish there was a way to fix it. I am also posting this question in the korean forum. Ps. I saw a answer to a similar question on the korean forum, and it told the questioner to update to vista sp1 or 2. I've been installing every update (except the optional ones) on my computer and i'm sure thats not the problem.

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.
