Preferred Solution: Making a list of my music library help

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: Making a list of my music library help

From a command prompt go to the directory where all these folders exist.
Type: dir > list.txt
the list.txt file should have all the directory names for you. It'll also have couple of extra lines you might want to remove for current directory and parent directory.

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.

I live on a school compound in which all staff live on site. We want to create a database of all our DVD's and Books etc so that we can see what everyone else has, and swap/loan them. It is important that this database can be updated by everyone, and accessed by everyone. I'm not sure what software would be good to use and is there any commercial software that is available for this purpose? I have looked online for solutions but most are for personal libraries only and are not shared. Thanks in advance.

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.

Well, after about a half an hour it decided to update. Still seems like a mess. I can't tell sometimes which are songs on the Xbox Music Store and which are on my own hard drive. Seems like everything is just mixed together without any reason.

So, my itunes library is almost perfected for my needs and includes all the music i want on my computer. however, when i go to my music folder from start, it's really disorganized and i can't stand it. i just want to know if there is a program or something that i can download that will organize my music, not just create another library and play it. the thing is, when i fixed my itunes library, i changed the artist, album, artwork etc. , but not on the original file. i want to keep all that junk too. basically, i just want it all organized. i'm really bad at describing my problem, sorry! anybody help! thanks!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

A friend asked me to help out what I thought was a bit of a "silly" request when I came across an error I've never seen and can't seem to get around. In MM, I try to delete certain selections from his library (and I've tried several different selections) and I get the error:

"ERROR: Database fetch (mim:database:Track: <a very long bunch of letters and #'s>) = FAILED"

I haven't tried to delete the entire library b/c he wants to keep at least half of what he's got.

Anyone? Help!

Thanks much,

What version of MM and does he have MM Plus? The first thing I would try is to rebuild the database. The only things that he'll lose are:

Play Count

Date Added to Library
Date Last Burned

Custom 1
Custom 2
Custom 3

Everything else will be rebuilt from the tags.

In the default libraries there is a corresponding public folder of each library e.g. Documents/public documents, Pictures/public pictures etc...

But the only library showing the public folder is the music library. Why is this and how can I make it not show without removing the public music folder?


A:Music Library showing public folder as well?

underneath where it says music library (the title of the folder) it says 'includes 2 locations'. click that and then remove the public folder from there.
The public folder will still exist, it just wont be included in the music library.

I've noticed that the music library always shows folders (not files) first when ordering by date (created/modified). In Vista, files can be shown first, which I prefer since I can see my most recent music files. So my question is... is it possible to change this, to display files and then folders (as in Vista)?
Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?

As an example, The Itunes directory is in My Music. My Music is in a Music library, so the file details in explorer include album, #, etc. Within Itunes is the Apps directory and other data where "album name" doesn't make sense. I want it to display as a non-music directory. There doesn't seem to be any way to set the default columns displayed in a directory within a Music Library without changing how all the directories are displayed. Nor does there seem to be a way to remove a Music Library sub-directory from being considered as a Music Library member.

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!

A:Is there a way to drag music files directly to a WMP playlist (and the library)?

You could drag all of your music files into the library one time and leave them there. Then select songs from the library to put into the playlist.

A:Making music cd

cda files on the CD means you have created a normal audio CD not an mp3 CD. To put your mp3's on a CD as mp3's you need to create a data CD, just as you'd burn any computer file.
Don't know why your audio CD still shouldn't play though. Do any audio CD's work from that specific drive on the computer?
Also unless your home stereo is specifically able to play MP3's, and most don't yet, it won't be able to play an mp3 CD.

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?

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows Media Player (version 11.2.6001.7000) won't import music to library.

Are all your files from iTunes? If so they may all be in the .m4a format which is incompatible with media player.

In Windows XP, copied files appeared at the end of the window, so that just scrolling to the bottom (e.g. by pressing the End button) made it very simple to locate them. In Windows 7 the new files (and folders) are sorted immediately, which means that in a folder with lots of files I have to go hunting for the new stuff. Is there any way to revert to the Windows XP behavior?


A:Explorer - Making new files appear at the end of the list (like XP)?

I'm not sur if this is what you are asking, but in explorer you can go to say my documents and in the upper left corner there are options of how to arrange folders. By, name, size, date modified ect.

Are there any software programs that you can organise files into a list?

I mean, if I wanted to print out a formatted list of files in a certain folder for backup/reference purposes.

I have just registered in order to solve the above problem. The solution suggested in several threads found suggest Start >
All Programs and R/click on any entry to activate a dialogue box > Sort by name.
Which I'm sure is what should happen but it doesn't activate any sorting moves no matter where on the listing I R/click. What do I need to do to correct this malfunction?

If you are talking about the menu just grab them and put them where you want them. That is, Drag and Drop up and down the menu lists. If in the folders then right click the background and click Arrange Icons by Name.

Hey guys, I've recently ordered a new PC and it should be here in a week. I'm a gamer and I like to write music and will finally be able to record with my new system. I'm just lacking a sound card. So basically I'm looking for a card that will be awesome for gaming and music. Any suggestions out there? I know I will need a PCI-E card. I'm looking to spend $150-200. Any help would be much appreciated

This is probably the best one out there:

That is the best of both worlds. There is a better card for gaming, but the Essence above is much better for creating music and phenomenal for gaming.

Please help,
I download music and when I try to play back individual tracks my laptop will only play one track at once.
In the left pane under the heading 'Music Tasks'where it says "Play selection - I am highlighting for example 6 tracks but it will only play one track at a time - at the end of each track I have to go to the screen and highlight another track for it to play.
I am sure this is 'operator error' and would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi guys , I was wondering if the surface pro 4 256gb i5 8GB ram varrient would be able to handle video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro, Hitfilm, Sony Vegas, or Power director ( haven't decided which yet ) . I won't be doing any 4k editing or gaming and I will be mainly having the surface just at home connected to the charger.
Music Production: for music production I will be probably be using FL Studio ProdEd
Im havening a debt between either getting a Macbook Pro ( 128gb varrient , just in case if you were wondering ) or getting a Surface Pro , There both in the same price range of $1,300 so my main question is , " Would it fit my needs ? " .
If you can help out , that would be really really awesome. Thanks

I forget how to make contacts available under the global address list. I have some distribution lists set up, but when I click "To" I can't find them (or my contacts under the Global List).

Anyone remember how to do this?

Sorry, Doc. Not sure. Go to the properties of your contacts folder and make sure it's an Outlook Address Book.

Hi All,

I am finally getting around to sorting my music collection. I have converted all my CDs to MP3s, tagged and organised them but the last bit i a wanting to do is somehow find out if i am missing any albums from the Artists i have. is there any software that does this? I have used Music Bee to help tag everything but it doesn't have the feature from what i can see.

I have too many to go through individually and check that i have all the tracks and albums, any help would be great,

No, there's no software that does that. There are just too many possibilities. Have a look at all of the albums by Muddy Waters, and that list isn't even complete. Then for each album there are different versions, US, UK, Japan and others.

You're best bet is to go to the AllMusic Guide, look up the Artist, then click on Discography and it will give a chronological list of the major albums. You can do the same for compilation albums.

If you can't find a particular album you can also try MusicBrainz and Discogs.

Ok I figured it out with some more researching.

It's apparently the GeForce Experience installation. It has process called nvstreamsvc that seems to be the culprit.

I just disabled the service from starting up and it's not causing that buzzing/scratching lag in audio anymore.

Hope it helps anyone in the future.

Hello all Hoping someone can help with an issue I have Having recently upgraded my Music Licence Acquisition the Need list Multiple Files to for URL fathers PC a large number of DRM protected music files will no longer play as they are unable to reach the license acquisition URL to re-download the key Having looked into this it appears that the license key site has been removed Need to list the Licence Acquisition URL for Multiple Music Files and is no longer available so no keys can be downloaded OK - We have to accept that the music is lost one of the major issues with DRM being that legitimate users end up loosing their purchases in this scenario however there are a large amount of files and I want to be sure they are all contacting the same URL or if some of them are trying to contact another URL we can identify these and see if we can download the keys One way to get the URL is to open in Windows Media Player and record the URL when it fails but there are over tracks so this would be very time consuming I m looking for a way to recurse the files to obtain the header information and list the URL it would contact to get the license key From this list we could identify all the tracks trying to contact the now removed site and write them off but if we find other URLs we can test these to see if the licenses can be obtained I ve used a Powershell script found on the web to extract METADATA from the files but this does not include the header info with the license acquisition URL If any one is able to offer some advise or suggestions I would be grateful nbsp

You may also want to investigate if the keys can be moved from the old installation to the new installation. I don't know if it's possible or not...just a thought before you write off all the files.

I have a bogus entry in the AutoPlay list that comes up when I put a Music CD in my CD drive.
The entry also appears if I right click on the drive in windows explorer and chose Properties then AutoPlay and then Music CD.

The entry is a string of unknown characters, which could be chinese, and underneath is "using <need provider>"

Does anyone know how to remove this entry from the list.

i'm really not sure how to explain this but i'll try my best. i'm really picky when it comes to win customization and one thing i wanna do is one i don't know how in win7.

on start menu, I edited "music" "link" to "display as menu" and I want it that way.

what i don't want is to show me list of folders included in libary. (i have included only "my music" in libary so i want i to display content right away). screenshot will explain.

can this be done?

thank you all for helping in advance.
i know i'm picky

A:Libaries - Music shown as menu / hide folder list

Hello QuiGon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you only have your "My Music" folder and not the Public folder location in your library anyways, you might see if using step 2 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below may help. It will change your "Music" Start Menu button to open directly from your C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music folder location instead of your Music library.

Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries

Hope this helps,
