Hello

Please follow the steps mentioned below and check if it helps.

Method 1:

I would recommend you to rebuild the database of Windows Media Player and see if the problem is resolved.

Here's how:

To resolve this problem, delete the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps:

a. exit Windows Media Player.

b. Click Start, run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Playerand then click OK.

c. Select all files in the folder and then click on Delete on the file menu.

Note: You don't have to remove the folders that are in this folder.

d. restart Windows Media Player.

Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

Method 2: If this does not resolve the problem, disable the Windows Media Player database cache files.

To do this, follow these steps:

a. exit Windows Media Player.

b. Click Start, run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoftand then click OK.

c. Select the Media Player folder, and then click on Delete on the file menu.

d. restart Windows Media Player.

Method 3:

When you move digital media files on your computer, the file name and file path information remain unchanged in your library. Then when you select a file to play to its new location, a new entry is created in your library if you select the option automatically added to your library when played. As a result, your library can quickly contain a large number of entries, duplicate or invalid.

To stop music files to be automatically added to your library.

a. in Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options.

b. on the Player tab, clear the files of music to add to the library when played check box.

Now, when you play music on your computer or the Internet, the file will not be added automatically to your library.

You can also consult the links below for more information.

    Hi amireos,

    Yes, you can create your workflow where you can keep all your images on the external hard drive and the Lightroom catalog file as well.

    If you start with Lightroom and then use the Destination location as external hard drive when you import your image of the external source such as a camera or SD.

    If you already have your Images on the Mac HD drive, then play all your Image on the external hard drive first and then import images directly from there.

    Finally, you can change the location of the Lightroom Catalog as well.

    Default location: folder on the Mac Drive HD, there is folder called Lightroom that you can move on the external drive too (however catalog Lightroom can't memory space as its only import previews of the images is not the real image and full)

    Once you move the file catalog Lightroom external hard disk, then you need to browse the catalog file when you launch Lightroom only once.

    See thread: LR catalog moving on external hard drive

    Let us know if it helps.

    Kind regards

  • How can I update my Windows XP system on a larger hard drive and keep all my data and programs?

    New hard drive.

    I'm going to install a new hard drive of 250 GB. The old man has only 20 GB. I have Windows XP SP3 and my PC is a Dell Dimension 8100. How can I reset my new HD with all the programs, and what is the correct order?

    Use Clonezilla to copy the old drive to the new drive. Once complete, go into the bios and set to boot from the new drive and then save by pressing F10.

    Once you get to Windows, you can configure one or more partitions on the empty space of the new drive with disk management. In addition, you can now format your old drive if you wish.

  • How to switch my system on a larger hard drive without having to reinstall the OS and lose my data?

    replace the hard drive

    I'm looking to replace my hard drive but I need all the files it is about it, passing a small hard drive to a larger hard drive. My question is how can I save all the files on the disk and how can I get the operating system on the new hard drive without the original disk

    If your current system does not work, there is no need to bother with data backup, installation of applications and get a Windows XP installation CD (although regular backups are important to do as a general practice).

    Instead, clone your current hard drive to your new hard drive.  All you need is an external hard drive enclosure and disk cloning software.  In addition, once you have made sure that everything works correctly, put the old drive in the external box and use it for backups.

    Some of the cloning apps below are also disk 'images' (e.g. Acronis True Image).  A disk image can be compressed so that, for example 58 GB of data can produce a 40 GB image file.  Some of the apps, and of also can selectively backup specified files.

    The housings of external drives more to connect to a USB port.  Make sure just that buy you one with the good 'form factor' (portable = 2.5 inches, computer desktop/Tower = 3.5 inches) and internal drive connector.  Many but not all speakers can deal with SATA and PATA time.

    This example (for laptops) is not the less expensive external hard drive enclosure, but it's a decent case that can be used with either SATA or IDE (PATA) drives and comes with its own software package of cloning: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602

    It is a very good buy for a drive IDE (PATA) Office size: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602

    In general, Newegg is a good place for your search options by looking at the comments by users.

    If you have a Western Digital hard drive, you can get a version of Acronis True Image free of WD (http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=119) or you can get the software of cloning separately (this is not an exhaustive list and in no particular order, some are free, some not):

    Acronis True Image Home
    EASEUS ToDo Backup
    Paragon Drive Copy or Partition Manager Personal
    Casper
    Norton Ghost

  • How to install Win7 on new hard drive and still access all the files from the hard drives of previous Vista?

    I currently have a Windows Vista PC. It has two SATA drives, one with the operating system, the one I use for storage.

    I want to buy a new SATA hard drive and install a new copy of Windows 7 top.

    I want to know the steps to follow to do this. My plan is this:

    1. turn the pc power off and open the case.

    2. remove the old hard disks

    3. plug the new empty hard drive

    4. turn on the pc and the insertion of the disc to install to Win7 for DVD-ROM drive

    5. enter in the bios and put the DVD-ROM as first boot device

    6. install win 7 on new hard drive.

    Is this correct?

    Because my next question is important:

    7. Turning off the computer.

    8 reconnect the two old hard drives. New total number of SATA drives connected = three.

    Now when I restart the PC and login to Win 7, it lists two other drives as, for example, D:\ and E:\ readers?

    How can I make this work?

    Thank you very much!

    Thanks for your reply, but I don't want to dual boot. I just want to have the hard drive as the master drive Windows7 and the old two drives as slaves, where I can access files as the pictures and letters.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Well, I would disconnect all drives hard current interns, then connect the new hard drive, reinstall Windows 7, re - attach the old readers as slaves and copy all the data you need to on the disc of Windows 7.

    Hello-another guy.

    Thank you for your message.  You can make a change in the registry to remove the possibility of using removable media.
    Click "Start" > click "Run" > type regedit in the text field and press "Enter."
    Navigate to the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor
    In the right pane, double-click the name of the starting value.
    Change the value 4 to disable the removable USB mass storage device drive access.
    To restore and re - enable access by car to the removable USB mass storage device driver, restore the value data for the boot to its original default value of 3.
    Please let us know if it did or did not help to solve your problem.
    See you soon

  • How can I get my favorites on an old hard drive and transfer them to another hard drive?

    the motherboard is dead on my old desktop - but the hard drive is still usable. I got a new office and a friend added the old hard drive from my old computer (which has all my favorite firefox somewhere) on my new computer. Now I have two hard drives on a computer - one that came with the new computer - and my old - so, I'm now able to move all my pictures and files, etc. - and even found the bookmarks of Internet Explorer - but, I can't seem to find bookmarks in firefox. I look under Program Files - and I have-see Mozilla Firefox but don't see the bookmarks. I have searched for it - tried the answers that the mozilla site says to do it - but I can't find them. can anyone help? Thank you

    Bookmarks are not stored in the Program Files folder, but rather in their own folder profile 'hidden '.
    This link will show you where Firefox holds all of your information and what are the files to be transferred through

    To access your profile folder, while in Firefox, click the new menu button on the right side of the navigation bar, click Help, and then click troubleshooting information. In the Applications section base, click the Show folder. The window that opens will be your profile folder.

    Because you want your bookmarks, you should enter places.sqlite and then put them in the profile folder in your new hard drive with Firefox closed
