Windows media player 12 music renamed badly.

Simple question, WMP12 has renamed some of my music files, fair enough, however, he has renamed many of them bad, i.e. There is a track of Freestylers called Painkiller, WMP has decided that it is indeed by Judas Priest and, rather annoying, renamed accordingly.

the response simple is just change it back to what it was before, however, I have 1000 songs on my pc (I do a lot of dj - ing), many of which I don't know or have not played yet, so I don't know what were their original titles.

so is it possible to restore the files to their previous/original names? Yes, I tried the "previous versions" property tab?

While either rip a CD or if you right-click on the file and choose Find Album Info, will give you the option to search for the correct album / song information.
Items already in the library, you will need to right click and select Find Album Info.

If what you want is not listed, you must manually update the information.

  • Windows Media Player adding music/Playlist problems like reading list will not be updated

    OK, so for some strange reason don't let not my WMP add me any music library. My music is in my music folder and when I click on individual songs they will open in the POM, but they will not remain in the library.

    In addition, it doesn't let me update the playlists, I already have. In order for me to add to the playlist, I must open the play list, search for the song already in my library, add to playlist and save it like that.  (This means I can't create a new playlist). I tried right click and add to the playlist, but it does not work. In addition, I can't open the playlist to see the songs already in it. I can right click and play the playlist, which shows me what songs are in in the 'Now Playing' list, but it won't let me see without playing.

    Personally I think that it could have been a buggy update, considering I've had this computer for months, and it has worked so far.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • A few tracks on a CD Windows Media Player 12 will play but not others

    I downloaded an album on Amazon.com MP3 to my computer.  After you download the Amazon MP3 default folder, I cut and pasted into the folder my music to the title of the appropriate artist.  Before ever opening Windows Media Player, I've renamed some of the tracks so that some were marked [Explicit].  Then I opened Windows Media Player to play the music.  Ironically, the ones I renamed plays very well, but the other tracks (unmodified) on the same CD are not recognized.  If I navigate to the folder of the album, a track, right-click and select "Add to Windows Media Player list" this will work in the drive.  But if I click on the album in the drive, it cannot recognize the path.  Huh?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Frying or audio sound in Windows Media Player (especially for music files)

    I think this virus recently, I had on my PC has done major damage to my Windows Media Player files and music. It was working fine this past Saturday, but lately, I experienced technical difficulties with the sound. Music files do not play correctly. The sound is very distorted and scratchy and it sounds almost as if I'm playing music on a tape that has been eaten or warped. Sounds like kind of when you play a portable CD or a cassette player that runs on a low or dead battery. Sounds almost like the files are at a standstill, and then they sound normal, but it is on and off. I can't explain this well because it's really hard to describe. I transferred a lot of my music files on my mp3 player. Even when I play samples of the song on iTunes and Wal-Mart, I get the same problem. I've removed MusicMatch JukeBox on my computer because it prohibits with Media Player.

    I would like to get rid of the itching and the distortion on these music files. I don't know what I have to do. I printed a few instructions, but they are 15 pages long and a bit complicated to read sometimes. Do you know what problem I want to talk to? I don't know how it happened, but I bet that Media Player is not fully upgraded. I also tried the upgrade of WMP but that did not help either.

    Is there a way to relieve this itching and distortion on Media Player? What exactly is the problem I have?

    Sorry the long delay in his response (13/06/12)

    No, I have not found a software solution.  My problem is "solved" by the hard drive crashing / failing & replacement, re - install etc.

    However, I discover, before the crash, when I copied a part of the music on a USB stick and my iPod (led Seattle for THE & back and I wanted music - same 'bad') and was surprised when I plugged the USB on my car stereo - don't pop / does click - no idea why - at least the POPs & clicks were a "warning sign" of the crash of the hard drive.

    When I got home was purchased 8 more of USB drives (fits on music 10 hrs each) saved the rest of my music files.  Most were commerical and had the CD (somewhere), but some of the music was 'live' recorded at a meeting of extended family, which has turned into a festival of the song of sorts.  I was the only one to whom he recorded (after a few changes shared with others).  A week later, the HD crashed (prior to installation).

    Up to 12 USBs with music (and iPod) now and I'm not playing with CD while driving.

    If you have any music, videos, photos, you do not have another copy somewhere... maybe think about making a backup pronto... just in case.

    Take care

  • -What someone answering questions on Windows Media Player. I can't download a license for music. It gives me error 438.

    I have Windows Media Player 11

    Hello

    1 have had any changes made to your computer before this problem?

    Perform the following methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    There is a possibility that internet settings are causing this error 438 to come.

    Go to your Internet Explorer and check the settings of Internet security. Make sure to set the level on 'medium high'. If the level is set higher, it can block the Windows Media Player to download the license, Windows Media Player error 438 to come.

    Also in the Internet security settings, it is important to "run activex controls and plug-ins." By activating these two parameters, it must deal with what caused the error to occur in Windows Media Player.

    Method 2: reset the DRM Bank on the computer.

    To do this, follow these steps:

    (a) If Windows Media Player is running, exit Windows Media Player.

    (b) locate the DRM folder on the hard disk, and then rename the folder to DRMbackup DRM.

    Note: by default, this folder is located in the following location in Windows:

    %SystemDrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM

    (c) visit the following Microsoft Web site:

    http://drmlicense.one.Microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp  

    (d) follow the instructions on the website to update the safety component of Windows Media Player. This procedure allows you to obtain new licenses for media content. You can also reset licenses for purchased content so that you can play that content on a computer.

    Note: DRMs, such as Microsoft Windows Product Activation, maintain an internal hardware ID. This ID is based on the hardware configuration that existed during the installation of Windows or installing Windows Media Player 11. If you change the processor of the computer or other devices, the hardware in the DRM system ID does not match the new computer configuration. When this occurs, DRM determines that a user has tried to move the content protected to a different computer. This behavior can also occur if the storage protected by DRM in the Windows registry has been changed.

    Note: you must contact any third-party stores where you purchased music to reset the licenses for that music. If you copied CDs for protected Windows Media Audio files, the CD must be copied again.

    For your reference: When you try to use Windows Media Player 11 to play a digital rights (DRM) - management protected, multimedia media can not play

  • Several copies of the music in Windows Media Player 11.

    Original title: why do I have multiple copies of music and video in my library of wmp - 11

    XP pro

    Hello

    ·         You have media files stored on multiple sites?

    Here's what you can try:

    Step 1:

    (a) start Windows Media Player.

    (b) press F3 on your keyboard to open the add to the library of the find computers dialog box.

    (c) click the Browse button to locate the file on your computer so that your library contains invalid entries. Specify the location of the folder in the box look in.

    If you are not sure what duplicate in your library entry is not valid, you can add a path column to display your library by following the instructions in the last question. Specify the folder on your computer that matches the path invalid file displayed in your library.

    (d) click on the search button.

    If only a small number of duplicate entries exist, you can delete those invalid manually by double-clicking the invalid entry and then clicking on delete.

    If you have a large number of entries in doubles in your library (or if your library is duplicated), it might be better to create a new library

    Step 2:

    Here's how you can create the media library:

    (a) close Windows Media Player.

    (b) locate the database on the computer that contains the entries of your library. In general, the library database file (CurrentDatabase_219.wmdb) is located in the following directory:

    directories SystemDrive\Documents and Settings\nom_utilisateur\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

    (c) right click on the file and then click Rename.

    (d) rename the file by changing its file .bak extension.

    (e) start the player. When you do so, a new database of library file is created.

    (f) press F3 on your keyboard to open the add to the library of the find computers dialog box.

    (g) click the Browse button to search for a folder on your computer that contains digital media files. Specify the location of the folder in the box look in.

    (h) click on the search button.

    The player will search for digital media files and playlists in the folder you specify and add to your library. If you have your files and playlists stored in different folders on your computer, you may need to search for files several times, by specifying a different folder every time.

    Step 3:

    Avoid the music automatically added to avoid duplicate music files. To prevent music files to be automatically added to your library:

    (a) in the Player Windows Media, 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.

    Original title: laptop won't read the music files stored on external hard drive

    I have an old Compaq laptop Windows XP, so it was out of memory I transferred everything on a Portable Seagate (500 GB) hard drive and started to access it.

    I have not modified parameters or anything that moved. I used to be just able to restart the laptop, or disconnect and reconnect the hard drive and it works again, but now it or not will be not at all, or it will cut off half way through a song and then not to play anything more.
    I can't find any support for this problem because the phone reads that the hard drive is there, and everything else works. Only the music doesn't. I tried to play music on a connected USB and it works fine. I'm so confused!
