Q: Solved: My Videos Library Ate My Pictures Library

EDIT This issue has been solved Hi there This problem is slowly driving me crazy and I d appreciate anyone s insights My default Pictures library has somehow become a permanent clone of my Videos library It s not that it s a copy of Videos it s that both libraries have merged into the same entity The quot Pictures library-ms quot file literally does not exist Windows is using one file and one set of options yet displaying it as if there were two libraries And it stubbornly refuses to acknowledge that quot Pictures quot can or should exist If I delete one of the quot Videos quot both links remain visible until I refresh the Explorer window which makes them both disappear If I try to delete one and then the other Windows says it Library My Videos Solved: My Pictures Library Ate can t find the file which makes sense since the individual quot Videos library-ms Solved: My Videos Library Ate My Pictures Library quot file is already gone If I delete all of my libraries and then select quot Restore default libraries quot both duplicates reappear as before No quot Pictures library-ms quot is ever created I can manually create a new library called quot Pictures quot but it doesn t Solved: My Videos Library Ate My Pictures Library affect the presence of the duplicate Videos and other applications such as Windows Media Player do not recognize it as the official Pictures library WMP only shows images in the Videos folders and if I select quot Manage Pictures library quot from the WMP navigation pane it opens the options for the Videos library Strangest of all is this if I delete all libraries and don t restore them manually a quot Videos quot library will automatically reappear at some point no more than hours later I can delete it when this happens but it will continue to reappear at regular intervals I ve tried editing the registry to completely disable the Libraries feature as seen here and then reenable it using the factory defaults but this doesn t make a difference Since that patch completely removes the default libraries properties from the registry I have to conclude that Windows stores additional library data elsewhere but I haven t had any luck finding it I would really appreciate any suggestions nbsp

My libraries file, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos had developed a problem.

When I click on Pictures, the picture folders appear, but immediately below, my document files appear as folders also.

If I delete a document file in the pictures file, the document also deletes in the documents file.

If I try to move the document file from the picture file to the document file, a window says its an Identical sub folder and won't go any further.

How can I remove the folder list of documents from the picture file without destroying those documents in the document file?

I think that this problem developed as I loaded an ArcSoft program to read slides into my computer.

Hello Jimbow, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If it's just been added to your Pictures library by mistake, then you should be able to use the tutorial below to remove it from the library without deleting the actual folder.

Hi. I have a large collection of photos which are stored in my pictures library. I have found they also appear in my videos library. I am sure I have never copied them across. The 2 libraries seem to be identical.

Any ideas what might have happened ?

I am using windows and have all my itunes on an external home network drive. Everything is all set up and all new files are written to the drive. The problem is that if I add music from a cd to the library it is only recognized by the computer that I did it on and not recognised by the other computer. How do I make both computers recognize all content in the library?

Thanks, Joe

I am trying to share a folder of pictures with my wife who has a std user acct on our home computer. I have copied it from a CD to My Pictures and I see the folder in my pictures library. I've clicked on that icon and I've clicked Share With and I've clicked on homegroup (read) and I've manually entered her user name. The folder in my library shows "shared" at the bottom of the screen.

But when she logs on, that folder does not appear anywhere in her pictures library and unless she has access to my user acct she can't see the pictures.

What am I doing wrong?

A:Solved: why cant i share pictures in my library with my wife

The Share With option is for sharing with - another computer - not an account on the same computer.

For her to see the pictures, copy or move the picturea to the Public Pictures folder in C:\User\Public\Public Pictures where both of you can see them.

A:[SOLVED] Videos Library Strange Event? Please Help

anything saved in the Public folder, gets saved on your Library folders as well. (public is for sharing) If you do not want duplicates, move any files out of the Public folder unless you want to share it with another computer. Just keep your files under your C:\Users\Videos or whatever.
As for .vcmf and .itc2 the later being the cover art for a music file in iTunes, and the former for Sony Vaio Media share. You may want to stop sharing your music through Vaio Media share. If these files bum you out, you can select them and move them to a new file and save it on your desktop. If any of your music does not play, you can move the files back.

The Picture It! Library and Digital Image Library do not display temporary files. By ignoring temporary files, the Library can remain clean and uncluttered. An issue has been identified where some software marks photos as temporary files when they are acquired from the camera. This patch enables the Library to view these temporary files.

The software currently known to mark new files as temporary is Canon Utilities ZoomBrowser version

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP

I have my photos under the users folder under my name and then my pictures.  With them stored there they are not shown in the Libraries pictures folders.  I know it would be duplication but is there a way to have them put in both locations or target the Libraries picture folder to the other one?  Hope this makes sense.  Thanks.

If you want it to be the default save location highlight the location and press the Set save location button.

Yet when I get into my Pictures Library when not in craigslist or any other web site, there are over 200 files!

I have a very strange problem:
I am using Windows Media Player 11 under Windows Xp Pro SP1 with all the needed updates.
I can import (add) videos and songs to my libray but strangely it doesn't want to add pictures. (plain jpegs)
I tried both methods: by monitoring my grafix folder, and via drag and dropping my files. Nothing happens. 0 added files...
First I thought, there are to many files, but also with single files or very small quantities (10) nothing happens.
It's a shame, I'm using WMP11 to stream stuff to my PS3, now I can't stream my pictures because WMP won't import them in its library.

Did anyone have the same problem, can anyone shed light on this strange mystery.

Thanx a lot for helping me out!

Hi dateacha, and welcome to TSF.

Some of us are on SP3 now. I would not advise you to go that far but, you have to get SP2. Not having it is leaving your computer open to all kind of problems. Microsoft updates has more of an effect on your system than you would think. Its imperitive that you get these updates asap.

Do that and tell me if you have the same problems.

It might be that the file is hidden and windows cannot see it. Go to My Computer, then Tools > Folder Options > View > select shown hidden files and folders.

Also it could be that it's not using the DDF file anymore and using a different one. Maybe M4U or something similar.

For some time now I have noticed that the "picture/image" on the icons in my libraries are sometimes there and sometimes not there!!??

This is affecting all libraries; music, docs, photos etc. (the same is the case in all of the drives)

When the pictures disappear they are replaced by a vertical shadowed strip (if there is more than one folder within the folder)

I have yet to spot a pattern for when the images are there or not there! But just lately it seems they are not there a lot more!!!!

Any ideas?


A:Library Icon pictures/images keep disappearing

Can you post a screen shot, so we can get a better of the issue.

You can also try to rebuild your Icon Cache folder. First you will need to 'Show Hidden Files and Folders'

To do this press the Windows Key + E (the windows key is near the space bar) > Tools (located in the toolbar) > Folder Options > View > click on 'Show Hidden files, folders, and drives'

Next open Windows Explorer (using the Windows + E keys) if it is closed from the previous instructions.

Go to C:/users/username/AppData/Local now find the file IconCache.db and rename it IconCache.db.old then restart you computer.

I'm using Windows 7 with Outlook 2003 - received photos in jpeg - cannot save to librairies "my pictures". "My pictures" is not listed in the librairies drop down menu.

On my pc running XP, I simply click open, or save as, and the "my pictures" option is listed, I then choose the folder to save in. Cannot do this in Windows 7 directly from Outlook 2003.

I have a directory of about a photos each with a varying number of descriptive tags keywords assigned to them If you are serious Pictures by Arrange groups, Tag, Unspecified Library about managing many pictures tags are indispensable It allows you to search and sort all photos in many Arrange by Tag, Unspecified groups, Pictures Library simple and complex ways I have been very successful in managing this collection in a Vista computer using Windows Explorer View tab Stackby Tags I recently Arrange by Tag, Unspecified groups, Pictures Library copied this collection to my new Windows computer and found the Stack Arrange by Tag, Unspecified groups, Pictures Library by now Arrange by is only functional in Libraries This has added some inconvenience But more importantly it appears that the Pictures Library only seems to recognize a maximum of eleven tags per photo Because of this limitation I now realize that when I try to find photos for certain tags they cannot be found Secondly several of the Tag icon groups scattered throughout the whole set of these groups have had their valid name replaced by the word Unspecified These tag groups represent real tag groups but when I click on one of these groups labeled Unspecified I see the few photos that had no tags assigned to them I added tags to all of these photos but the Unspecified labels remained and it still takes me to the same screen but now saying no files found Further I have deleted most of the photos that had more than eleven tags and all of the Unspecified tag group labels were corrected Of course now missing the photos that I had deleted to test this problem My question is Is there a way to increase the maximum number of descriptive tags that the Pictures Library will recognize I realize there are other programs like Photo Gallery that have facilities to manage photos with tags but Pictures Library could provide just an additional valuable perspective on managing photos the other programs don t have

I'm using the 'Arrange By' selection box in the Pictures Library. When I use the 'Arrange By' selection to arrange my pictures by date (in descending order) I get about 2 years of pictures grouped by day and the remainder by month. Arranging 'by month' does not work at all. This happens for all the folders I have in the Pictures library. Has anybody a suggestion on why this is teh case? Thanks for your help.

A:Pictures Library Arrange By Date gives results by Day and by Month

Make sure that under the pictures folder (c\users\ your username \pictures) properties, under customize make sure the folder is optimized for pictures.

Also right click some of your pictures and make sure the data and time stamp is correct. Meta data could be wrong messing everything up. Right click picture-properties-details.

I clicked on "restore settings" in my pictures library mistakenly thinking it would make the changes I made to the navigation pane go back to the way I had it a moment before(like an undo button) but it totally messed up the organization of my photos. They now show as folders even though the view is set to large icons. They are no longer organized by month but by when they were downloaded to my computer. Photos are a high priority for me. I'm sick about it... I read something about a systems restore button in the control panel, but I'm scared. I don't want to wreck anything further.

I've removed sharing. I've removed the offending computer from the Homegroup.

Nevermind. Edit: answer already here.

Difference: corruption of my library was caused by clicking Apply then OK too quickly on the "Picture Properties" window (Start > Right click "Pictures" > Properties), causing the library to be updated twice simultaneously.

Actually the fix I linked above does NOT solve my specific problem. The repair install suggested therein is apparently the only fix.

I have a large amount of music purchased from itunes in the aac format, and I have recently got a non-apple mp3 player. I need to convert my whole library to mp3, and i was told to do it by burning all my library to cd's and then ripping them back on to my computer, but in an mp3 format. I have nearly 2000 songs on itunes so this is going to take a huge amount of time. I was wondering if it is possible to burn the songs to a dvd-rw disc and then rip them to my computer as it would save me alot of time.

Also if there are others ways of converting the music??

Thanks you very much!!!

Yes, that's the only legal way to do it. You're allowed to burn the tracks to an Audio CD which you can then rip to Mp3.

But they must be Audio CD's so that means a max of 80 Min. running time and you can't use DVD's.

If you don't want to keep the CD's you can use a CD-RW and keep reusing it. But since CD-R's are pretty cheap, I'd keep them. Even if you don't use them they would be an extra backup.

Can anyone tell me WHY; in Windows Media Player10, why would the library modify tags on previously ripped albums, and give them information on stray mp3's that I am "finding album info" to get album art, composer, etc. etc.
Example: When info is found on a stray 70's song "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" ; info being: Have A Nice Decade: The 70's Pop Culture Box, Disc 3,
The @#*%!&#@ library changes the tag information on all the files in my Best of Warren Zevon folder.
Likewise, when finding Buck Owens info, his face ends up in my Marty Robbins folder.
Who is the dumbass here, The library or me?

A:Solved: No thinking in the library!

I've seen this question asked numerous times but I don't believe I've ever seen a difinative answer. I would suggest going into Tools>Options>Library. In there you will find a setting "Retrieve additional info from the Internet". This needs to be checkmarked if you want to use the database to get album art & such, but you could maybe tick on "Only add misssing info" & see if that makes a difference. Or, I know this would be a major pain, but uncheck the "Retrieve info from the Internet". Then you would have to recheck it when you actually do want to use it. I've fortunately have never had this problem, but I have looked around at different settings to try & find an answer for others & have never found a setting that would allow you to get info manually only.

By the way, Warren Zevon(Very Cool), Brandy(O.K.), Buck Owens & Marty Robbins!!!

WMP was recently updated to ver. 11 by automatic update. I didn't like it (an understatement), so rolled it back to ver. 10 using Add/Remove and clicked Remove, whereupon it doesn't remove it, but rolls it back to the previous version.

Since then, I cannot sort the file names in the Library AND HAVE THEM STAY SORTED. I click on "Title" and they sort alphabetically in descending order. Exit WMP. Reopen WMP and they're back to the same random order they were before I sorted them. I can find nothing under Options or File or View about sorting. There must be a way to keep them sorted and I'm just not seeing it. Where can I do that?

I just found out about BookDB software for keeping track of a book collection (very good).
What I also need is a similar program for organizing, sorting, searching, etc... saved documents on my computer....something that would work similar to doing a google search but, offline and on my computer, where I could enter a search word and relevent files would come up on a list to open.
Book DB would be perfect, if, there were a way of saving a document for viewing (or, printing) along with the title, author, etc...

Is there such a thing available??
Can someone make one for me?

Thanks, Sandy

A:Solved: miss filing in library

Your default save locations for your Libraries have been changed, this guide should help you arrange things how you would like them:

If you open Windows Explorer and click on Libraries in the left pane, then right click on each Library in turn, select Properties and then click the Restore Defaults button that will correct the problem of the files being saved in the wrong Library.

I'm running Win. Media Player 9 and I just now, discovered that it's keeping a "Library" file of things I've played in the past. How can I clear ALL of these log files 'easily'? Is there a setting to stop media player from doing this in the future? I HATE 'junk' building up. Thanks Dave

If you place both computers on the same Homegroup, you should be able to define what to share and how
Also it will make things easier if your profiles on both the computers have the same username and password

A:Solved: iPod Reinstall / Library Transfer

I followed from another thread and found some answers myself, which were actually quites helpful.
1) was helpful and got me answers that I needed. It was recommended on another thread.
2) It appears that it is not a simple feat to copy songs from an iPod back to a PC. Incidentally, apple provides little to zero documentation on such a transfer, most likely because of the potential for copyright infringement on the transferred music when friends "mass-upload" music to each other. However, if you read my plight above, there ARE many ways in which such a transfer would be legit and legal.
3) iLounge recommended the use of a shareware program called PodUtil, which was very easy to use and provided a solution for all my problems.
4) Incidentally, the answer to my question #1: Will changing the main library to my iPod wipe clean all the music currently on iPod? The answer is yes. If the only copy of your music is on your iPod, then DON'T select yes to change the default library. iLounge is pretty explicit about this.

A:[SOLVED] dynamic link library catch 22

Please try this workaround (you will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD or an integrated SP3 CD if SP3 is installed).

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2,(or SP3) you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go start > Run the box type in sfc /scannow …please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

This might help, I'm not entirely sure. Give it a shot.

I have stupidly made a mistake and included my backup file folders in my pictures library.
I had the external drive with my backups on open to view in windows explorer(did not realise I had selected the folder) Looked at the include in library at the top clicked it,clicked on pictures and now I can't make backups as the file is on the backup target.
I didn't realise I was creating a link
How can I undo this?

Running Win 8.1, IE 11. A few days ago, when using IE, the program stops and a popup appears:
"Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library"
"C:\program files (x86) internet explorer\iexplore.exe
File: c:\Program Files (x86) Microsoft Visual Studio
Line 930
Expression: Invalid Null Pointer
For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see documentation on asserts"

Press Retry to Debug the Application
(below are 3 boxes)

Abort Retry Ignore

None of the selections accomplish anything.

(Remember Abort, Retry, Fail? This is just as useless) HA HA

The only way I found around this was to use download and use Firefox (I need a browser that uses Java). It works OK but seems terribly slow compared to IE.
