Music files

Q: Music files

Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?

Preferred Solution: Music files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Music files

Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).

I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion

I apologize if this has already been addressed. I honestly don't know what I'm doing. My Vista's not playing any of the music files on my computer or my iPod on any music player I use (iTunes, WinAmp, the Rhapsody that came with it), though it plays anything else that's online. Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

I have Windows 7 Home and when I go to Pictures all my Music files are in there as well.They are, as normal, in Music, which means I have got 14gb of Music files in there twice. This has happened fairly recently and I have not installed any music files since I bought the computer and put them in there about six months ago. I tried deleting them, one folder at a time from Pictures, unfortunately it removed some folders from both Pictures and Music, and others deleted normally. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

My husband and i are in a band and are trying to upload our music to a local site. It said we needed mp3 files so we tried coverting our wave file to an mp3 file ( my husband downloaded something that said it could do this) and now we have no sound. The speakers still make little crackling noises like they are still live but we get no sound.

I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this but if not, I'm sure someone will let me know!

I have a lot of music files on my hard drive and because they have come from so many sources over the last few years their file names are inconsistent. I'd like all of the music files to be in the same format in the My Music folder itself and not just in an application such as Win Amp where I can tag the music.

It's driving me crazy (I know it shouldn't!!!) and I am really not interested in changing each one seperately . . .

I know there has to be a program (hopefully, free!) that can do this easily. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much.

A:Organizing Music Files In My Music

Hi, that's always been a problem of mine until I decided to act. I didn't use a program - I spent a whole day renaming, retagging, organizing the files. If you have a program like iTunes which has a music library feature, filenames shouldn't be a problem, but if you're paranoid about filenames(like me), I suggest you do it manually. Delete all entries of the music library(if your player has one), but DON'T DELETE THE FILES. Making subfolders in My Music (ex. by artist, by genre, etc) should help. Once you've renamed everything, re-transfer them to your music library. Done!

Hi, I am new to the forum and Windows 8.

How do I make it so my apps pull files right from that drive?

Please, I really need help on that. I bought my laptop a little over a month ago. I have Windows Vista. I have some videos on this laptop that I have downloaded, My computer used to read them as normal videos files. Since a week ago, all the software that I try to use on my computer to read my AVI video files read them as just music. I can only hear the sound of my videos This is really frustrating. Although, if I read a normal DVD that I have, it is ok. Why? How do I change this? Is it because I downloaded quicktime?

I've had my pc for four years and the problem occured several months ago. When I play music or video files the files stutter. This occurs on every software such as Media Player, Itunes, Real Player. It even occurs when I play youtube videos. It is very annoying and the stuttering happens approximately 10 to 15 seconds apart. I tried the following with no success: reloaded Windows XP, defrag hard drive, ran CCleaner, ran SpyNoMore, ran RegCure. I've notice that the stutter occurs when my CPU spikes above 25%.

No because when you first use the new program or whatever your just pointing it to the source files. It generates a list of those files for that particular program. Generating a list doesn't mean it creates new files.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum but you know how you can only put small amounts of music onto a CD? (Isn't it because of Copyright and piracy?)

So how do I go about backing up my music files if I can only use about 1/10 of the CD's space for music files? Do I have to use 63 blank CDs to backup my music or is there another cheaper more efficient way?

Thanks peeps

I do not know if this is the best forum, but here goes. I installed two new drives. One is a CD writer/DVD player, the second a DVD/CD player/burner. Since installing the drives and new software (nero6.1/Easy CD 7) everytime I attempt to make a cd longer than 70 minutes the last tracks start a "clicking" noise and eventually stall. I have tried different write speeds, different media, and two change.
Anyone have any suggestions?


A:Burning Music CD from .mp3/.wma files

I had that problem a few years ago and it turned out to the be the software I was using to rip cd's. Could it be that your audio files contain this clicking sound? If not I would try to burn a cd using Windows Media Player and see if that works out for you. Also make sure that you have aspi installed for your drives.

hi completely off the original subject but i am having the WORST issues with my music
i have about 32gb of music on my computer and my music folder has a mind of its own: it pulls files out of one folder and seperates it to another folder buried in three subfolders.
it splits my music by one artist into five or six other folders with one song each.
i am trying to streamline the process but WMP wants to be the manager, sonicstage and phatmedia also want to govern my music.
how can i fix this and get my music files to stay put once and for all i am so frustrated at this point that i have deleted about 20 gb of music i no longer wanted and like Christine, it came crawling out of my recycle bin and back into my music folder

Apologies if this has been posted in the wrong section.
Ok, so my problem is:
I play all of my music on iTunes, when im sent songs they get saved in my music file in my documents and also saved on Windows Media Player. I thought that the songs in windows media player were irrelevant, so like a fool i deleted the windows media playlists.
As it happens all my songs have gone, not in the recycle bin and arent restored after i completed a system restore...
Any suggestions people?

When I first started downloading music, I must have had a setting wrong. The majority of the music on my PC is in an Artist Folder, then an Album Folder, in the My Music section of my PC. If I want to organize the music more efficiently, by moving the song out of the folder so that it is just viewable under My Music, do I have to open every damn folder one at a time, or is there some kind of Windows XP trick to do this more quickly?

Hello, still attempting to find my way around this infernal thing (sorry my Computer). Does anyone know of a free media Player download, which asks me, after I have selected a music file, "would you like ????? media player to convert this file in order to play it". I ask this because I don't know one music file from another. Your help, as always will be very much appreciated. nor69

A:Playing various music files

Hi nor69,

Most audio players will simply play a music file in any normal format.
You would be interested in the format if you were downloading the song from the net. A compressed music file (mp3, etc.) will be much smaller than the original WAV format of the same file and would therefore download faster. Both the mp3 and WAV version of the same music file will play in music players.

I personally use Winamp which can be downloaded from many places on the net. It was free and probably still is.

Most folks just use the windows media player which will handle music and video.

If you are wanting to make a music CD that will work in your car player, then you will be interested in converting the music files to WAV format.

Hope this sheds a little light for you.

Best regards,

So I went to find a music file from my music section to put onto my itunes and when I looked at least 80% of my files were gone. Now I only use itunes to upload to my ipod, otherwise I use windows media player. Also when I download to My Music the file doesn't show up. Its as if the files are all hidden. Same deal with any folders. I'm not sure how this happened or how to fix it. Thanks.

A:My Music Files Disappeared

The files might have been moved because you're using 2 different applications for music. Something similar happened to me, WMP moved a lot of music to different folders (i.e. moved songs from a soundtrack to a soundtrack folder, I had it sorted by artist before). When iTunes went looking for the songs, it couldn't find it. I had to relink all the songs again.

A:Hello, l need help with converting music files.

The fact that the music on the CD's is in folders means that they were already ripped. Check the files in the folders to see if they have the .mp3 file extension.

So all you need to do copy the files from the CD's to the hard drive. This will not in any way damage the files.
