Strange problem with shared Music Library

Q: Strange problem with shared Music Library

I have all of my players set to stream media over the internet and locally When I first start up WMP and click on my office computer's library all of my music shows up I have around problem Music Strange with Library shared gigs of music I can play one song fine However when I click the Artist's tab again to get back Strange problem with shared Music Library to my music everything has changed to quot unknown artist quot and I cannot access my music If I refresh the library the only music that shows up are my artists that start with a or the letter a I have this same problem on my two computers that are locally shared on my network as well as my laptop which is sharing remotely Has anyone ever experienced this problem before If so is there a work around The reason I am using the shared library under other libraries instead of using each players internal library of the shared music library is because my Office computer where all of my music is stored has been edited to reflect all of the correct information artist album song genre etc I would rather not spend hours on each computers WMP editing all of this information to match my office computer's WMP I have also tried metadatabackup to try and make each player's data the same but it doesn't work on shared network players unfortunately Thanks Dan

OK I think I have a new problem.
I couldn’t add new music to my library and tried the direction on this site to move/delete WMP database files.
This works fine and I could then add more music …
problem solved but only temporariliy.
Once MP11 rebuilt my library, the problem returned.
So every time I want to add new music, I have to dump the old library database files and rebuild.
This is a problem as it takes three days to rebuild as I have a large music libary.
Any Ideas? Could it be because my library is too big?
Any advice is appreciated.


A:WMP11 - Music Library Problem

WMP is an OK media player, but the music database just doesn't work that well.

For a large music collection you should try MediaMonkey, a freeware all-in-one music organizer.

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Hi all,
I am trying to share my libraries under win7 but I keep getting the subjected error. This is a new rebuild and the difference from the previous install is that I have set my default user folder directory onto a second drive (so o/s is on C, and user is on U. I did this using "Profile Relocator".

I checked the drives permissions and gave my user account full access to the drive and all sub-directories thinking it maybe a perm isssue. But I still get the same error. Anyone else had this problem?


A:Your library could not be shared...

Hi solomani, a few questions if i can are you trying to share the entire user directory?

what operating system are the computers your trying to share with running?
Relevancy 60.2%

Can't find a real answer for this on Apple's site...

I have a machine here with multiple users under XP Pro, and want them all to share a single iTunes library. Not just the same songs, which I've figured out, but the same Library files... so if one uses adds music, the others see it without having to re-add the tracks in their own.

By default, iTunes puts its library files (iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml) in each user's My Music\iTunes folder. I'd like all users to have access to the same library files. I've searched the Registry and environment variables but so far haven't found anywhere that this location is specified.

Any suggestions?

A:iTunes shared library?

If you start iTunes on the PC with the SHIFT key held down (keep it down until iTunes actually comes up), it will open a window that prompts you to select the library file you want. Then you can browse through and navigate to your shared library directory. If you are doing this thru the Max (OS X), then you keep the ALT key held down, not shift.

on my personal computer (winxp home sp2) i'm pushing 35 gigs of my personal music -- legally ripped from my cd's. my brother is going off to college next month. we got him a macbook and at the moment, while he's still home, we're on the same wireless network, and we have sharing set up in itunes so he can listen to my music. is there any way he can download my music onto his harddisk?


A:itunes shared library

legally, no.

When you share your music it only makes the listing and your brother can play from that only. No burning or anything else.

Now I don't know what the mods stance on this because of the copyright issue so I will not post the information unless a mod agrees that I can.

A:Managing my music library, help!

Hey, if you bring up your iTunes and click on the advanced menu, then choose Consolidate Library, this will copy your files into your designated itunes folder under the directory artist/album. Also the files will be copied and not moved, so after you bring order to the chaos so to speak, you can delete your originals. And iTunes will recognise the change in directory so you wont have to re-add your library!

A:How to tell MUSIC app to rescan the library?

First of all: Using WMP for music collections is a bad Idea. It's ui is rubbish. But what's more it also messes up the media folders. It creats thounsands of cryptically named copies of the albums art files, it stores them hidden and marks them as system files and in some cases it even converts a ordinary folder.jpg file into a hidden system file. Get some decent media player like Winamp, Media Monkey or even VLC player.

Music library and mp player Hi I know that If you rip an original CD track to MP kbps and then for whatever reason decide to compress that MP even further - say to that would result in some loss of quality But Building a music library I am ripping everything on and downloading on too But then with my future mp player having music on format that doesn t allow to store a lot in the player So thought I could compress a bit more and the quality yes the quality will be lower but then you want good quality you don t use a mp player but a normal stereo Am I right or wrong But then the And Music Player Library Mp3 days of cd are counted so we still need to put music on digital format for the future so what quality audio to use Stay with mp Or go with some other format Music Library And Mp3 Player like apple or wma from window media player Or some new recent one but may be not compatible with my new mp player and meaning I have to re-rip all my audio again Then technology will be there and there will be no need of compression And then the web will be access from everywhere and we wont Music Library And Mp3 Player have our own computer but subscribing monthly to some web site to use and listen the music and for every thing else So I am getting so confused and lost my question is what you do today and what do you recommend And about the future how are you going to keep up thanks

A:Music Library And Mp3 Player

Here are my thoughts about this:No#1. Let today be today. If your music is .mp3, then keep it that way. Don't get tricked into the hype of what tomorrow may be like. You may not see tomorrow. Just keep doing as you're doing, and forget about the Jones'No#2. No one knows what tomorrow may bring, and since music isn't important as to being prepared for tomorrow, I wouldn't even think about it. If you need more room to store your files, then invest into another hard drive, and dedicate it to just your music.Your bitrate quality will really get disturbed if you went to a very low bitate, compared to it's original format/bitrate. And again, if your music sounds good to you, and you like it, leave it be. Don't go making projects out of things you really don't want to be wasting your time on. And yes, I know, the higher the bitrate, the larger the file size. It's your move now... so what are you going to do? I say just get more hard drive/storage space, and you'll nip it in the bud..wma formats, I always convert them to .mp3.Windows Media Player? If you're gonna use it (I see no reason why you would), just be aware that by default it is set to protect your music you rip using it. What that means is that your music is protected and it's virtually held hostage on your computer. Burning it from there won't work either. So, if you're going to use WMP, make sure you uncheck the Protect My Files checkbox. Even still, I'll never trust WMP with my music.Also, there is no reason to try to keep up with the ever growing of music softwares, just to listen to your music. If you use a program that plays your music, and it plays very well, then leave well enough alone. Alot of programs are designed to trick you, (like Windows Media Player), and they will DRM protect your music, and block you from transferring your music from your computer to disc, or where ever else you may want to put your music. Soon, you'll be posting here stating, your music all of a sudden doesn't play, you can't burn anything, your burner doesn't work, the programs you've used before all of a sudden don't work, you can play one file type, and not the other..... and the list goes on and on.Take this advice from someone that knows these computers and will inform you of what you should know about them. Trying to keep up with the Jones' and using the wrong softwares at the same time will get your computer slammed with problems.

So, I don't really understand Xbox Music. After a clean install of Windows 8, I opened Xbox Music, clicked on My Music. It showed 106 albums, none of which are mine as far as I can tell. Later I added my music drive to the Music library, but it still shows the same 106 albums. I have over 22,000 songs; none of them show up in Xbox Music. Very confusing.

I need something that'll take the contents of the three folders, merge them, and put all songs back into folders named for their albums (and under their artists' names).

I am having a problem where no matter what I do, Windows Media Player 12 gives me a "there are no items in your music library"! there is no option to add anything anywhere! when I google the message, it tell me to go to "organize<manage libraries<music" the first 4 results in Google says to do that, the rest of Google is just spam.
the problem is when I go to organize<manage libraries<music, nothing happens! I need to sync music to my Sansa Fuse+ but cannot because of this problem! please help!
EDIT: I want to also mention that the "library" link/tab is grayed out in WMP12. deleting the appdata did not help! other than that Google full of spam

A:wmp12 "there are no items in your music library"

The "library" is not even a real's just a virtual location that doesn't have any content unless someone chooses to place "files" there by having them imported to that location.  In reality...all that happens (IMO) is that a pointer/shortcut is placed there which points to the real file location and allows it to be accessed/played.
I don't even use it on my Win 7 install, preferring to use other players (which do the same thing as WMP without all the unnecessary trash).
If WMP doesn't give you the option to "import" files into the library...try another player and sync your files with it.
To find the real locations of your music can use a tool like Everything Search Engine - and use the generic file extension (e.g. *.mp3) to find all .mp3 files.

One feature I like with WMP (Windows Media Player) and Windows Media Center is that they have the options to automatically search online and replace incorrect information with your songs, artists, etc. at the same time finding missing information (ie: album cover) however this feature has to be turned on. Go through your preferences and see if you would like this and then turn it on.

My brother just downloaded a bunch of mp3s into my Music folder in my new laptop. I recently bought a 5.5 gen Video iPod and decided to include all these new songs in it. By dragging and dropping them into the iTunes library, they all went in.

That´s what I thought! When I saw the Library list, it was much shorter! I tried to manually drag-and-drop specific mp3s that hadn´t been copied onto the Library list. The ¨plus sign¨ icon indicating a file is being included showed up, but the file is not in there.

I have checked the properties in these files and they are the same as others in the Library, why are they not going thru?

No one has been able to describe this and trying to find a fix on the internet is proving to be impossible at least through Google Basically music to library randomly seems skip I m playing music and all of a sudden it stops I click the player and it s not responding for a few seconds and then goes to a new song If I happen to have it on top of all the other windows I see music library seems to skip randomly the media player cycling through a bunch of songs and music library seems to skip randomly then it starts playing one I say media player becuase I have tried WMP VLC Songbird and WinAmp but they all do the same thing edit I can go back and play through the song it just skipped through just fine So if Metallica - Enter Sandman skips and I go back to play the song it plays through just fine end edit This is completely random however I have noticed it tends to happen more after mins- hour of being asleep shut down a while Then it s even more random to the point where I may not even have the problem It seems to be doing it more often now though so I m getting worried more annoyed I thought maybe it was my hard drive cause it s happened a couple times while watching anime the video just stops and goes to the beginning This has only happened within the last weeks though So I switched to my library on an external hard drive but it still happens on there So then I tried installing songbird on my nd hard drive and playing it on there Maybe my main hard drive is going I was thinking Nope mins later it does it a couple of times music library seems to skip randomly I did build this computer in late July however it still happened on my old build So that s why I tested the hard drives since they are the only things that are the same It s also just the music I tested with a YouTube video playing and a video on my main hard drive Songbird at the time on the nd hard drive skipped but the audio was still playing on both the YouTube and VLC Anyone got any ideas At the moment I am testing a video on the nd hard drive as well as audio playing seeing if they both go out which would I think point to the nd hard drive But that seems odd that both my nd hard drive and external would do the same thing I also disabled enhancements as that seems to be a popular thing in search results Thanks for any and all help nbsp

Help anybody? My operating system is Windows 10 and I am using the latest iTunes version, 12.3.2; the problem I've encountered is that with some CDs, when I download them into iTunes and call up the downloaded file, only one or two of the tracks are shown in black whilst the rest are greyed out. This doesn't prevent the greyed out tracks being played in iTunes, but if I try and burn those tracks to make a compilation CD, they wont burn. There is no such problem with the tracks shown in black (on the same CD). I've tried re-downloading the CD, but it makes no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this problem gratefully received.

My sister just bought one of these (Eposn P-2000 picture viewer and MP3 player).
I have an iPod and when I want to add songs I just connect to my computer and it launches iTunes.
My sister seems to think she can just add MP3's one at a time. She hasn't set up a music library. I told her when you have 100's of song files it makes sense to put them in a library like Windows Media PLayer or iTunes. I don't think the P-2000 supports iTunes. Does anybody know what it does work with, or is it it's own system, and you have to just add songs one at a time.

Hi all I'm hoping someone can help me out with this one Got a new PC and I'm having some trouble with iTunes finding my music library Both machines were are running Windows XP well the old machine was running home edition new one is running Pro not that it probably matters and the latest version of iTunes I followed the steps on the Apple website for transferring the music and library http support apple com kb HT viewlocale en US the only difference being I used a portable HDD rather than my iPod I've gone to library music iTunes new Transferring PC through this process before a couple of times when I've had Transferring iTunes music library to new PC to format my hard drive for whatever reason and I've never had an issue until now I copied the iTunes folder over the the My Music folder like normal so the library files should all be correct Install iTunes and sure enough my library shows up just like normal Only problem is iTunes can't seem to locate the mp files themselves properly anymore Here's what I think is happening On my old PC the iTunes library files were stored in My Documents My Music like normal however due to lack of hard drive space I stored the actual mp files on a different hard drive in the machine in this case d mp This worked fine when I formatted that machine because iTunes was still pointed to the same hard drive for the music files as nothing changed on that hard drive when I formatted the primary drive with Windows on it In this case I've moved all the mp s to the default iTunes directory My Documents My Music iTunes iTunes Music since I don't have the hard drive space restraints I was dealing with before I confirmed that iTunes is pointing to the proper directory under Edit Preferences Advanced settings however every time I click on a song it's telling me it can't find the mp file and is asking me to locate it manually As far as I can see there's no way to do this easily without selecting one song at a time and locating the file for it I don't have the time or patience to go through my entire library and manually find all the files so is there an easier way to do this I was thinking if I delete my old library it may even be easier to re-add all the songs to a new one because at least that way I could select entire folders rather than one song at a time Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated Thanks

A:Transferring iTunes music library to new PC

Delete your iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml from the computer with the problem and then re-add the music. They are normally stored in the My Music\iTunes folder but I don't know where they would be stored on your machine. It sounds like you copied the library files over from the computer with all your music on the C drive so the new computer will look for the files on the C drive. The only way to stop this is to delete the library and have it re-find the songs.

Hello and thank you for reading,

I have a large digital music collection of about 5,000 songs. I just recently switched from a Windows Computer to a Mac. I transfered the files to the Mac and converted them to AAC - which promptly lost approximately 1,500 songs (I still have the Windows backups).

The library has become quite cumbersome to keep organized. iTunes does not provide an adequately easy interface to manage large amounts of somewhat unorganized files and I am looking for something more powerful.

A quick search online showed me several programs for Windows, but I wasn't able to find anything for Mac OS X. Does anybody have any suggestions for how I might organize this library?

Hey guys,

I have playlists setup so that my various MP3 devices can sync with different music.

In the future, I would like to be able to drag a music file (from a windows folder) directly into a certain playlist, AND have it go into the main library, all it once. Is this possible?

Right now, if I try to drag a song into a playlist, it will not let me. The only way I can do it now is by dragging the song into the main library, finding it, and then putting it in the playlist from within the library.

As you may guess, this is quite troublesome if I have many artists I am dragging into the library since I must go through find each one, and then drag. Thanks!

Every time I try to import music to my library, I get a loading pop-up that says "working" as if the music is importing, then the box disappears and nothing happens (Drag and drop music to library). If I try to use the add to library feature within wmp, I add the folder I want and no files are imported, nothing happens, not even a "working" pop-up as compared to the other method I tried. No music is currently in my library at all. I can still listen to music if I open the files but obviously this is much less convenient than using the library.

Any ideas?

I have all the stuff backed up, but here is what I got so far.

I had some issues with restoring the folders, but I followed an instruction here in the tutorials on how to restore by re-installing Windows 7 (I have 64-bit pro). Now only two of the four folders are fixed. My Pictures and My Videos are still acting up.

If I right mouse click on the library and select properties, the only one that shows up is the public folder. If I click restore defaults, nothing. If I add the folder (they are in her profile) then it shows up. I save it and it is there. But it shows up as My Pictures (C. I tried renaming, but you cannot.

So how do I fix this? My Documents and My Music are fine though. It's just My Pictures and My Videos

Are you saying it shows up with the open parenthesis and a smiley face?

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.

Greetings, I have what I hope to be a simple question. I have the default libraries and two new libraries I created. When I add a folder to them such as "My Playlists" it adds "C:" to the end of the name. I don't believe it did that before my computer crashed. Am I missing something and is this something that I can fix. When I go to rename the folder in the library the "C:" is not showing up so I can't remove it. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!

I've noticed this most while using a co-workers color printer- when I open any application, to print or otherwise, the computer starts playing into music, and a host introduces herself (Kristi Barker) and she begins announcing what seems like a TV show. There is no video to go along with this. She goes from talking about makeup to fashion to home decor. It is really bizarre. Sometimes the audio will even play over itself.

I have restarted the computer several times (it is running very slow) and I ran a virus and spyware scan using CA.

Besides the audio and the slowness, there is nothing else giving me any clues ot what this might be.

Has anyone heard of anything like this?

The easiest way to describe this is to say I "had" tunes on my laptop which I transfered from my W7 via a USB flashdrive. The folder & tunes have long since been deleted & recycling bin emptied & the Vista has been defragged at least twice, yet when I recently installed iTunes to transfer contents from one iPhone to the other one, the tunes I "had" on here, mysteriously showed up in iTunes. How ??
NO, I never had the tunes on the iPhone. Its a mystery to me but I bet sonmeone here has an answer.

Its empty, but right clicking and viewing properties shows it has 3 files and 4 folders, and is 400 bytes in size. It was created during the OSs install date, and is shared.

Hello All,

I really hope someone can help me with this highly irritating problem.

I have vista home premium. In the regular Windows Media player I have all the proper cd covers. In the Media Center, Music Library, MANY of the cd covers are replaced with "Upgrade to Plus" graphics from musicmatch. I uninstalled musicmatch, but of course the problem didn't go away.. plus there were still folders (now deleted) left behind and a bunch of registry entries (not deleted, but nothing obviously related to my problem) still there.

Please, can someone help me get rid of this musicmatch virus. MusicMatch doesn't offer any support unless you buy the Plus version, which is disgraceful.

Thank You.

A:"Upgrade to Plus" icons in my VMC music library

If the "Upgrade to Plus" is in the mp3 tags, then you're going to have to use WMP to find the right album art and update the tags.

Here's an uninstall guide from MM tech support:

The following steps will take you through a very thorough uninstall and reinstall of Musicmatch Jukebox:

Step 1: Make sure all Musicmatch applications are shut down.
- Close Musicmatch Jukebox.
- Open the Task Manager (use the CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE key-combination on your keyboard.)
- Click the "Processes" tab.
- Click the "Image Name" column title to sort the list alphabetically.

If any of the following applications appear in the list, highlight the application then click the "End Process" button:


Note: Ending a process may take several seconds. You may see a message
indicating that the application is not responding during this time. This
is normal. Simply click the "End Now" button if you see this message.

- Exit the Task Manager.

Step 2: Uninstall Musicmatch Jukebox using Add/Remove Programs
- Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar.
- Click "Control Panel".
- Click "Add or Remove Programs".
- Select "Musicmatch Jukebox".
- Click the "Change/Remove" button.
- Select "Yes" if you are asked to verify that you want to remove any shared files.
- Reboot your PC.

Step 3: Remove any leftover files that were not automatically removed during uninstall.
- Delete any remaining Musicmatch Jukebox shortcuts from your desktop
- Close any applications that are currently running on your system.
This includes any system tray applications (next to the clock on the Taskbar.)
- Right-click on the Start button.
- Click "Explore".
- Navigate to the folder where Musicmatch was installed:

Example: C:\Program Files\

- Locate the "Musicmatch" directory, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Confirm that you want to delete it.
- Navigate to the Windows Temp directory

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp

- Delete the files and folders in the Temp directory. Note: Any files that are in use will not be deleted.
- Navigate to the application data folder on your hard drive:

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\

- Locate the "Musicmatch" directory, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Confirm that you want to delete it.

Note: Replace "user" with your Windows account name. The Local Settings folder is a system folder and may be hidden. To unhide system folders
follow the instructions at the following URL:

Step 4: Remove leftover registry entries that were not automatically removed during uninstall.
- Click the Start button.
- Click "Run"
- In the "Open" field type: regedit
- Click OK.

The Windows Registry editor should now be open. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THE NEXT STEPS EXACTLY!

- In the left window pane you will see six main folders.
- Click the + next to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder.
- Click the + next to the "Software" subfolder.
- You will see a list of folders in alphabetical order. If a "Musicmatch" folder exists, highlight it then press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Click "Yes" when you are asked to verify that you want to delete the folder.
- Close the Windows registry editor.

- Restart your computer.

Step 5: Reinstall the Musicmatch Jukebox.
- Please download the setup file from the following URL:

To ensure a successful installation, please save the file to your desktop before running the installation. If the installation is

Hi I was just playing some of my MP s in my My Music folder and in music with file unknown files Strange type folder... I noticed that there were some strange and Strange files with unknown file type in music folder... unrecognized files in that folder As a matter of fact it looked like it had made one file for each and every MP file that I had I tried to open the file and it was not immediately recognizable what program should be used so I clicked Use Web Service to Find Program or something and it took me to Microsoft which gave me more information Microsoft informed me that this file type is not recognized by Windows and did not give me much more information than that However it did refer to me to a website that has an archive of file types So I went to the website Again the file type was unknown I figured that surely this file type must be something that is for some use Surely it is used by some program I own The file type is sfap Basically I have one file for each MP file that basically shows the name of the MP file and then that strange file extension For example here is the file name of one of these strange files -metallica-st anger album version -btb mp sfap Well nevertheless these files were annoying because they were getting in the way of organizing my folder and finding my MP s so I hid them all I am worried that this is possibly the work of a virus or something I don t think I have noticed this before though Anyway what should I do Does anyone have any insight for me This is really kind of strange and I d like to get this problem solved ASAP By the way I run Windows XP Professional Thanks nbsp

Well I had a recent infection that at first I thought I would not be able to recover from. I used ADWcleaner, spybot, JRT, and Hitman Pro and it seems to have removed most of the stuff. I still get pop up spam in fifefox, with new windows opening all the time.

Biggest mystery now is I can't play music files, both MP3 and FLAC and youtube doesn't work. Windows sounds work fine !! Some videos play fine strange.......

My friend called me about a machine that would not boot. I plugged it in and fan seemed to be not getting enough power and the machine was making this sick noise that sounded like an old Atari/commodore game from the mid 80's. 2 notes back and forth duh, dah, duh, dah. Well, at first I thought it was just a power supply. I put a new power supply in and things worked fine or so it seemed for about 2 minutes. Cpu fan seemed strong, got into bios ect. Then all of a sudden, it just quit, and started making that sound again. I know for a fact that the new power supply is good, and I could use some leads as to what next. Any and all ideas as to where I might go from here would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

A:computer won't boot, makes strange old Atari/Jaws music until shut power down.

If the BIOS is a phoenix AWARD bios then see here .
