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.

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
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.

My media playes does not recognize the mpeg4 files
I recently had to re - install windows vista, after that everything works well, but when I try to read a MPEG4 file, it gives me an error message that it can't play at this time of the fine. It plays music, mpg3 files fine... I tried to do a 'quickfix' but it didn't work.
I suggest you to download and install the latest pack of codec for Windows Media Player. Make a search using your favorite for more information search engine.

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.

Microsoft windows media player does not retain the previous size. is irrtating so me gift of reorganize its size every time when I open it.plz help I want stable wmp version 11, version 12 is sucks.
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.
