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.

Media Player Streaming Music

I am having a problem i have 3 computers all on a network trying to share music from media player on my main computer(1). My laptop computer(2) see's the connection in media player and can stream the music from my main computer(1) using other libraries and see's media computer (3). My other media computer(3) cannot see the main computer (1) in other libraries but yet media center see's main computer (1) and shared files? I am a little lost as to why computer (3) cannot see computer (1) in other libraries. Yet the other 2 can see all.

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.

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.

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.

Error - Windows Media Player Cannot Burn The Files

Windows media player-error: 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. Wmp 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.

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.

Will there be an update for windows media player 12 in windows home premium? Its doesn't play mp3 files well. Skipping in last 20-30 seconds of song no matter what driver i use. Programs having problems with: windows media player 12 on windows 7.

Recent changes you made to your computer: installed windows 7 home premium upgrade: clean install

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.

Why Are My Files Disappearing?

Lately i have been having problems with my files disappearing and then reappearing. I'll type up a word document and save it in a specific folder. When i go back to look for it in said folder it is not there. I try to search for it and it is no where in the library. I also try to rearrange the folder in a different ways to find the file. Alas, it still does not show up. The way i have to find it is to go into word and hope that the document is in the recently opened documents. If not, i am
Screwed and have to wait for it to magically show up again. Does any one know what my problem is and how to fix it?

Files Disappearing From Recycle Bin

I have had this computer since christmas, and i love it. I have windows 7 and everything has worked perfectly up until i got connected to the internet in late april and so far it has been one problem after another. And that leads me to my latest frustration. Files that i have deleted to the recycle bin have disappeared. And i did not permanently delete then!So far i have not lost anything of major importance, except for some photos, but, that's not even a disaster.

However, i'm now afraid to delete anything, for fear that i would not be able to restore the item if i needed it. Fter losing a handful of files from the recycle bin, i did an experiment:  i purposely deleted some items/folders that were empty or contained stuff that i absolutely didn't need. I checked the recycle bin every day and for a while my deleted files were still in the recycle bin. Now, today. They're gone! 

The only thing i did out of the ordinary was download an update for adobe reader. That shouldn't have any affect on what happens to the contents of the recycle bin - or would it?So, i really would like to know why this is happening. Alice bb**** as of today, june 22/10, i have tried your suggestion azeez n. As well as others from related topics and still files disappear from recycle bin.

Now, here's a detailed account of events leading up to the files disappearing from the bin, all from today. Checked my email. Created 2 unimportant word files and then deleted them to the recycle bin. Bell program did a scheduled anti-virus scan.completed. All ok. Opened action center, recycle bin  empty! Windows defender recommended a scan. Normal. Created 3 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin.

Went to favorites clicked on microsoft answers, recycle bin empty again!Created 2 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin. Signed in to windows mail;  checked mail;  signed out. Selected microsoft answers from favorites; checked my threads; checked some related questions; signed out. Java update notice popped up on screen. Allowed it to download. Bell internet security notice popped up saying it had found and deleted a virus and recommended an immediate scan to see if there were any further infections.

Did deep scan at 98% complete. Recycle bin empty again!Scan completed. All ok. All these instances happened in one day, today. What is happening? As of june 25/10 the problem still exists. I am almost certain than it only occurs when i am online. I am trying to monitor this more closely and will post the outcome. Sometimes it seems as if the recycle bin is on a timer and just empties on queue. One day it seemed to empty about every hour.

One thing is for certain, i cannot use the recycle bin in it's present operating condition. Can i completely delete the bin and reinstall it?  If so, how? I am just a novice so please excuse me if this is a stupid question.

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?

Ripping Music Files

I am using windows 7 home premium, 64 bit. Is it possible to store the same file at different bit rates? Wmp seems to automatically replace previously ripped, identical tracks. I want to see what difference the rates make to audio quality on an mp3 player.

Also, i am thinking about transferring all my cds to my pc (or a portable hard drive). I would wish to do so at the maximum lossless quality.could i then sync tracks from the ripped files to an mp3 player at a lower bit rate (to maximize the space on it)?  Or, would i have to burn to cd and then rip at a lower quality if i wanted to do that (which, depending on the answer above, might mean losing the previously ripped lossless files to the low bit rate ones and having to re-rip the original cds, negating the point of the original storage).

If wmp does automatically replace previously ripped files, is there a work-around solution to enable me to 1) compare the same files at different bit rates and 2) store lossless files and sync from them at different bit rates without replacing them?

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 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.
