When installation is complete, the folder icon is have been recreated, and you can move the original back in there files. If the folder icon is empty before you install, you can also simply delete it rather than move.

  • I have music files in my playlists that I can't make it appear in the Windows Media Player library

    Original title: Player Windows medis library - Playlist trouble

    -J' have music files in my playlists that I can't make it appear in the library - how can I sync the two up - I tried the usual fall / drag...

    Hello

    1. is the specific issue of the reading list?

    2 are you able to add other songs in the Windows Media Player library?

    3 did you changes to the computer before the show?

    The Player library is the location in the player that lists all of the music, videos and photos on your computer.

    When you play a media file on your computer or a removable storage device, the file is automatically included in the Player library, so you can access it directly from the reader. And if you have access to remote media stored on other computers on your network, you can change the player settings to add those files remotely to the Player library when you play them. The reader does not automatically add a file that you play from removable media, such as a CD or DVD.

    Since you aren't able to add songs to the library, you can try the following and see if they help.

  • Songs do not appear in the Windows Media Player library

    WIndows Media Player 12 adding not songs

    I got my new PC with Windows 7 this afternoon and more than 10,000 songs completely copied into the My Music folder.  None of these songs will appear in the library of Windows Media Player 12 songs. My Music folder is one of the libraries of WMP to default save location.  Only 3 songs are appearing in the library, and those are the three on the Public Music folder.  Yet when I add a song to the public music folder, it is added to the library. Then when I close WMP, and re - open, we are back to 3 original songs!  I spent an hour with HP support tonight and didn't get anywhere.  I tried the system restore.  I tried to restore the library.  I think that my WMP is maybe damaged.  Any thoughts on what I'm missing here?

    I read this on another topic, try it.

  • How do I delete the duplicate in the Windows Media Player library

    Repeated songs

    I have covers of songs in my library and I don't see a way to remove the copy of them. For example, the same song 3 times listed in my library, and I don't want to hear this song three times. It is through my library. How can I remove the repetitions?

    I suggest that you try to reset the media library. Note firstly reset the library will make you lose all play counts and ratings too. Then, follow these steps:

    -Restart the PC.
    -Click Start, type services.msc in the search field and press ENTER. In Services, locate the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service . If its status is started , double-click the service, and then click stop .
    -Click Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in the search field and press ENTER. This folder opens in Windows Explorer.
    -In this folder, rename the folder Media Player as Old Media Player . If you do not see the folder, then it is probably hidden. Set Explorer to view the hidden files and folders and show protected system files.
    -Launch WMP, your library will have been reset and will be rebuilt.

  • Music files are not listed in the Windows Media Player library

    Music files were deleted from Windows Media Player. The need for a Solution.

    AT & T Communication Manager, who gets my mobile internet card online, asked if he could deal with some updates.  I had only had the camera for a few days and assumed he was talking about some AT & T software.

    Next thing I know he turned my internal computer to the outside.  Washed and folded it carefully but seems threw things into the pockets now.  I had to hunt for my documents, but a lot of things are different, changed my toolbars, settings on Open Office.  Cannot access some files.  He was asked to record a program I had a lot of time.  Nothing in the Windows Media Player I had the program adds a big chunk of my record mp3 files music.  But I think that much of the music in my eMusic account, which now has nothing in it, can be conveniently added (unless I'm going one by one I think).  Moreover, my eMusic Download Manager is empty.

    I want to reverse sync my mp3 player but don't know how.  Should I get Windows Media PLayer 11?  I have Vista.

    Thank you very much.  And if you can help without talking over my head I would appreciate it.

    Hey Asher,

     
    1 are the music files on the physical hard disk?
     
    Step 1: If music files are present on the hard drive, then we can manually add the files to themedia player library or create playlists accordingly.

    Step 2: If the files are not deleted permanently from the hard drive, then restore the computer to an earlier time should help. To restore the computer to an earlier time when everything worked well, try the following steps.
    a. Click Start, type system restore in the search box and then in the list click on the system restore program.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.
    b. in the System Restore dialog box, click on choose a different restore point and then click Next.
    c. in the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.
    d. click Finish.

  • Impossible to delete the files from the Windows Media Player library

    Cannot delete files from library

    There are files in my library that I deleted the files, but the items still appear in my library. An example would be the items stored in the folder 'Public '.  When I right click on the file and choose 'Remove', nothing happens.  Any suggestions on how to get these files is no library WMP?  I tried already to 'Restore the library' and I also tried "sfc/scannow", which did not find any problem.

    It seems to be a corrupt library file.  In any case of the deletion and re-creation of who?

  • The Windows Media Player library is missing in Windows XP

    What version of WMP are you using?

    You still see your music files in Windows Explorer? What is the file type (or types) of these files (MP3, WMA; (WAV)?

    This could be caused by a corrupted media library. To reset the library, follow the instructions for your version of WMP and Windows at http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#medialibrary. Note the reset of the library will make you lose all the counts to play and possibly ratings too.

  • How can I remove the Windows Media Player library?

    I have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Edition and Windows Media Player 12.0.7600.166667.

    I finally got my music organized, so I deleted some files from my computer and moved songs between folders.  It seems that I can't remove all the songs from Windows Media Player which do not exist physically.  I tried to empty my entire library, I could rebuilt it.  In Windows Media Player, I clicked on the music (left), and then I clicked on the first song, hold down the SHIFT key and click the last song so that all my music has been chosen.  Then, I clicked and selected delete.  I said that I wanted to remove JUST the library, no computer.  When he was done, there was still 5501 songs left.  I know that once, I could just delete wmplibrary.db, but I get no hits on that when I get into the field at the bottom of the start menu.  I decided to uninstall Windows Media Player and reinstall, but when I go to start-> Control Panel-> uninstall a program, the only entry I see that looks remotely Windows Media Player is Windows Media Encoder 9 Series... but I wasn't brave enough to try it.

    Any ideas?  Thank you!

    Wow - thank you, my mp3 player thanks and my children thank you!  The convenience store did not help - he told me that my library has been altered... as I didn't know that already!  But the manual method operated very well... but if someone else is reading this for help, I don't have to start my computer in safe mode because one of the files (which was large enough that it WAS probably the file that I needed deleted) was in use with the network share and I had no idea how close anyone who opened.  But in safe mode worked very well.

    Thank you very much for your help!  And thanks for the information on troubleshooting: I had never heard of this before!
