Hello, Simone

I'll assume you're on Windows 7. Windows Media Player 12 is not supported on Windows Vista or XP and as such, you will need to go back to Windows Media Player 11.

You can check the permissions in the registry to ensure that it is able to record information.

Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk.

Open the registry editor by clicking on start, type regedit.exe in the search box and press on enter, you may be prompted to continue.

In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, MediaPlayer, then Preferences.

It should be an element named LastLocation_26, right-click on it and select Rename, and rename it to old LastLocation_26.

Leave the open registry editor and open Media Player, then move it to your favorite place and close Media Player.

In the registry editor, press F5 on your keyboard and check if LastLocation_26 has been recreated.

If this is not the case, there is probably a permissions problem.

If so, the location must be registered.

Let us know.

  • Windows Media Player does not support the codec used to compress the file.

    I can't do some of my videos to play it goes on to say that Windows media player does not support the codec used to compress the file. How can I fix?

    Hello

    What is the file format of the video files you are trying to play in Windows Media Player?

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support the file type or does not support the codec used to compress the file.

     

    You may encounter this error message for the following reasons:

    (a) the file type is supported by the drive, but the file was compressed by using a codec that is not supported by the player.

    (b) the file might have been encoded with a codec that is not supported by Windows Media Player. If this is the case, Windows Media Player cannot play the file.

    Windows media player will play only the files and videos only if it supports this type of file.

    Please see the bottom of the article that gives you information on the types of media files that supports Windows Media Player.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/316992

    If the files are not supported by Windows media player, then you will need to use a few players from third party that supports this file format.

  • Windows Media Player does not recognize the new downloaded songs

    I have a Pavilion a4310f Prod Nr: race AY014AA-ABA, Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    I just found out that Windows Media Player does not recognize the songs, I recently downloaded from Wal-Mart music download Site.  The songs can be seen in the music library in a folder called 'Downloads' and I can open each song and he will play when double-clicked.  The problem is that I can't create a playlist containing the new songs and burn a copy of the reading list, because the songs are not listed in the Media Library Player any hot it is sorted (artist, Album, Genre, etc.).

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Mitch

    Problem solved!

    Went to: start == > Control Panel == > troubleshooting == > view all == > and ran troubleshooting on the library and the settings of WMP.

    Convenience store detected library corrupt and "in media files appear in the WMP library.  Then ran convenience store on WMP settings which reset OMP to default settings.  After that, everything worked as announced.

    Thanks to Big_Dave for putting me on the right track.

  • Windows Media Player does not recognize the device (iphone)

    I'm trying to download music from Windows Media Player on my iphone. I can get the files in the synchronization section but the Media Player does not recognize my device or seem to have a way to connect. Can anyone help?

    You will need to install iTunes. The iTunes Setup program adds drivers and services for the iPhone. That's what I do:

    1. Once iTunes is installed, it allows to import all the music in Windows Media Player.
    2. If you want to automatically download album art, you will need to register for an iTunes Store account. Otherwise, just copy the album art from Windows Media Player:
    a. at a command prompt, cd in each music folder.
    b. attrib s h AlbumArt * Large.jpg
    c. xcopy AlbumArt * %tmp% Large.jpg
    d. attrib + s + h AlbumArt * Large.jpg
    e e.. now, for each album in iTunes, right click and choose 'Get Info'. Drag & drop the corresponding JPG of %tmp% in the field "Cover Art" and click OK.
    3. connect your iPhone. Select "Manually manage music" on the screen of the iPhone.
    4. click on the icon on the left side of iTunes music. Make sure that all the music that you want to synchronize has an audit. (This is the default).
    5 Select and drag it to the icon of the iPhone.

  • Windows Media Player does not include the CD Label/Insert manufacturer as it did before as I have re-installed Windows.

    Hi TerryodO'Donnell.

    The manufacturer of your computer would have installed extra software on your computer to create CD labels.

    So, you can use LightScribe system software to create CD labels.

  • Windows Media Player does not play the Audio CD in Windows XP.

    Original title: Media Player 11

    Out of the blue, my media player has stopped working. I don't think I did something for him, but he started playing an audio CD. I have no error message, it will not play. I have another media player on my computer, which didn't interfere with Media Player 11, but I get an error message that says that it cannot open "" MRL CDSG: / / / D: / ".

    Hello

    1. are you able to play the songs in the Windows Media Player library?

    2. is the specific question on a CD?

    3. What are the types of audio file that do not play?

    Method 1: As happens with another player more, it might be that particular CD is corrupt.

    Try again with another CD and see if that plays.

     

    Method 2: Although most CD using the file system ISO 9660 CD Windows XP can read CD created by other operating systems may use filesystems not supported. The most obvious example is the Mac CD using the HFS file system.

    A .vob is a type of video file DVD, which, as well as other types of files is used for standard DVDs. This is a special type of file video mpg, and a single .vob file will play on just a few players. If you have installed other players, first see if it will play on one of them. Depending on the OS and WMP you have, often you can do a video .vob file play on WMP by changing the extension .vob to .mpg. The player may ask you if you want to try to read the file, and if you answer Yes, it will play then. If these two fail, there are many programs that can convert a .vob to .wmv, .mpg or other formats that WMP will play. This program is free, but pays a lot those who give you a free trial, that could be enough to get you to your current problem.

  • Windows Media Player does not display the devices in order to 'allow' when I try to start streaming.

    I am running Windows 7, Windows Media Player.  I have movies on the computer that I want to display via two Panasonic DLNA certified Blu - Ray players.  I followed all the instructions from Microsoft to start streaming.  I get to the same point in different ways;  When Windows Media Player is opened I click 'Stream' and I come to a screen asking me on behalf of my library...  I fill in a name of the library (although I've never really known before), and then I click on the drop down menu to choose the device to allow.  The drop-down list is empty.

    I can access Netflix and other internet content from Blu - Ray players, but can't be seen by Windows.  Players are connected through cables cat6 for a home network.

  • Windows Media Player does not play the full song - Y470

    Hello, I am having some problems with Windows Media Player, and I don't know how to fix it. The behavior that I meet is that WIMP would begin to play a song (from the library or a CD) and after playing a few seconds of the second OMP would jump to the next song. There is no consistency on the number of seconds that play before WIMP past to the next song. I can't find any option in the menu options that would cause this to happen.

    This started happening when I opened first WIMP. It's really strange. No idea what might happen? I would use another player, but I don't want to go through the hassle than other players (though very good) to provide compatibility with the synchronization with the mobile devices, playlists, etc... So I am forced to use WIMP. I need this problem well.

    It seems to happen with all players and all my music files. I can play the music files on my desk very well.

    Thank you
