Media Player Network Sharing Services Issue


Right after i go on line media player network services grabs 2gb of memory and 70 percent of the cpu usage, and the hard drive usage light comes on solid - this makes using the internet almost impossible since the clock is on for several minutes at a time - this computer is only used by two 'users' and only has a limited amount of stored music, no videos or tv shows - how can i shut off the service - or restrict it's ability to consume resources. This is an acer aspire 5532 with 3gb memory and a 160g hdd.

Media Player Network Sharing Service

After upgrading to a larger hard drive i reconnected my xbox 360 to my home network and began re-sharing my media on my main computer to it. I don't leave it hooked up all the time because the cable has to stretch across the floor. The odd thing this time is, i came in to use my computer the next day and it was slow, very slow. When i looked at the gadgets it showed my ram usage as 94-97%! 

When i started up the task manager and had it show all processes, the windows media player network sharing service was eating up that much ram. I shut it down and within minutes it had started up again and began eating ram like it was candy. It only took it about 3 minutes to once again eat up nearly all 3gig of memory. I have to  go in and shut it down manually at least 3 times a day.

Local Network Service Memory Footprint And Services

I've just upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 and i'm examining what has been installed and trying to remove things which i dont use.

For example i have removed all drivers i dont use or need (like qos) from the network device.

Yet i have services like ssdp running - strangely enough i know exactly which devices i have on the network and the computer is directly attached to all of those and should in theory not need to have any discovery services running.

How can i manage which services are running and control what exactly ia being run on my computer network ?

I notice the local network service has a foot print of around 100mb regardless of wether i'm connected to the internet or not - i cannot understand why this service has such a large foot print. How do i control what is being run in this service, is there any way to stop the service from running and only start it if i need to use the network ?

I also wish to stop tcp/ip helper service from starting as there is no reason why anyone shold need echo requests from my computer, i could disable this by uninstalling the driver, is there anyway i can do this ?

As far as i understand i dont need ssdp, ntfs, tcp/iphelper, dtc, fdphost, grouppolicy client, homegroup provider, network list, nla, ftp server, windows connect wifi (i dont use wifi), windows media network sharing, .

Some of the other services look doubtful to me as well.

How can i reduce these services which i certainly dont need at the moment ?

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.

Sharing Media With Ps3

I have upgraded my notebook to 7 business edition. And before when i was using vista i have always been able to use the sharing files feature to stream media and play on my ps3. I have no idea why after i installed windows 7 it wouldn't let my ps3 find my notebook. I have already set the sharing option on the "video" folder. And sometimes the ps3 will recognize my notebook, but for some reason, it won't be able to access any files. It will display that the file is corrupted. And then after a few minutes, the ps3 will not be able to recognize my notebook again.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this problem? I am using dd-wrt160n router with custom firmware (i forgot which one).

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?

File Sharing Network Issues

I have three computers running on my network. 2 computer have windows 7 ultimate 64bit and 1 has windows vista ultimate 32bit. One of the computers is wireless (windows 7) the other 2 are wired. When i first turn on my wireless computer i have full internet and file sharing connections. I continue to have full connections until about about a half hour or until i lock that computer. Then when i start to use that computer again i have internet connections but my file sharing connections are messed up. I only can share files with the windows vista computer. When i try to access and share files with the other windows 7 computer it says windows cannot access.

I try and click diagnose but it cannot find anything wrong with it. Can anyone help me find out what is wrong with this? The only other way i can start to share files with both computers is to either restart my computer or go into computer management disable and then re enable my network card (that seems to work most of the time). My router and wireless card are only about a year and a half old. It is a linksys speed booster brand. Wrt54gs i think.

Sharing Two Machines In One Network, Xp And Win 7

Sharing two machines in one network, xp and win7, can't access to the xp files from the 7 machine. I have two computers, one is connected to wlan router directly, and the other one is a laptop. I set them to the same workgroup, enabled sharing and everything, and i can access to the win7 files from the xp using password. But, when i try from my laptop (with win7 installed) i can't see any computer connected, so i can't access to the xp files. When i type "net view" in command prompt, i get error 53, "the network path was not found".

In other location, when i connect my laptop to a lan using a cable, i can access to the lan's internet, but not to it's network folders. My laptop has windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installed

Network & Sharing Center / See Full Map

When i use the "see full map" in the network & sharing center it works fine and shows my pc connected to my switch then to the gateway to the internet, but after the machine has been to sleep and been wakened the map shows a question mark between my pc and the switch? The question mark is labeled "unknown".

Thinking this could be some sort of trojan i have scanned my pc with all of the usual virus detectors and malware detectors but nothing shows. If i do a reboot the map resets to what i expect, but if the machine goes to sleep or hibernate the question mark re-appears. I am using windows 7 home premium.

Network Folder Sharing And Port Opening

My network is like this: laptop -> f-secure firewall of the laptop -> ~wireless~ -> desktop -> windows firewall of the desktop -> internet

The ports are opened in both my and desktops firewalls (i reinstalled windows yesterday - before it was working perfectly. ). Even tried turning my laptop's firewall off - no help.connection cannot be made through the ports.

And another problem: the shared network cannot be seen (though i have the internet access). My laptop cannot see the desktops folder (could see before the installation) and my desktop cannot see my laptop's. Tried going through everything in windows explorer (folder sharing) and control panel (network, system (this one to change the work-group)).

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.
