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.)

I'm really stumped on this one. Last week I went to rename one song in my Windows 7 Music Library folder. I clicked 'rename' and put the cursor inside the blue highlighted name field. When I clicked to start typing the new title, all 80 songs were renamed to the same title. When that happened I did see a very brief green loading bar (?) appear at the top of the screen. All of the actual songs are intact and have not been affected; only now all the songs in this folder have the same name. Any simple soluitions? I'm guessing I must have had a finger-slip on the keyboard somewhere. I am a novice. Thank you very much. larryk

A:Went to rename a song in my Music Folder;now every song has same title

Hello Larry, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you had selected all of the files when you renamed it causing them all to be renamed.

Right click on an empty area instead the Music folder to see if you may have a Undo Rename option to click on. You can also press Ctrl+Z for this.

I don't know whats going on but if I go to options and click on Monitor Folders and find my folder where all of my music is located.

WMP11 finds all 24002 files but says "0" added when completed. I basically have no library and I'm not able to add the files to the library.

I've restarted my computer, I've deleted the watched folders and added them back without any luck.

A:WMP11 finds my song library but won't add it in the library?

First turn off Monitor Folders and leave WMP open in the library view. To add songs to the library, select the music file folder(s) in Windows Explorer then drag-and-drop them into the WMP window.

If that doesn't work, delete the WMP database and try again.

With no change to my system XP WXPSP Mb Ram good quality speaker system other than automatic updates I yesterday found my music played very differently iTunes WinAmp and Nero Media Player all affected slightly different sounds from each BUT WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER PLAYS PERFECTLY The others sound like cr p Sound is odd music, update Wierd MS ? sounding timbre some frequencies and voices muted karioke NOT switched on and sounds as if someone shot my speakers with a shotgun Definitely not HiFi any more Tried games and their sound was perfect PLayed a MP through Nero Showtime and although it was nearly perfect I detected a heavy increase in the bass and the woofer was distorting But again absolutely perfect sound from WMP I guess Wierd sounding music, ? MS update this means I will have to re-create all my playlists for WMP I used to use iTunes Winamp would have been my next choice after iTunes but that also sounds like cr p I restarted the PC several times checked the control panels tested the speakers in the control panels and each speaker performed perfectly on testing Karioke NOT engaged NO Sound effect or echo selected Equaliser reset to flat response all seems perfect and works perfectly in the control panel in games and on WMP I updated iTunes to latest version was now but still the same It seems Microsoft might have perfected a way to take over the MP -on-PC Player market not sure if that s a joke or not AAC files also do not play properly in iTunes not just MP Maybe I shoulkd buy shares in MS nbsp

Hi out there. I am panicking. I am trying to enter a song contest and recorded a song I wrote at a studio today to bring home on a CD and load into computer and then convert to MP3 somehow. It will play my CD through Music Match Jukebox or Windows media player, but I can't find a way to save it first and call it a WAV file so that I can then figure out someway to convert it to MP3. I have been writing my whole life, but really was inspired to write this song and I am afraid I may be unable to do what is needed to load/save/and covert to MP3. I loaded a WAVE program and thought that would do it, but it has not. If you could help me, anyone!!!!!!!!!!!! , It would help me so very much. Thank you and God bless you. Tara Leigh

The song is in my docs/my music. Media Player plays it if I go to the folder and right click "play" but I can't get to the song thru media player itself. Media player does see another song by the same artist in the same folder right next to the song in question. Both songs are .wma. Thanks for your help.

A:[SOLVED] Media Player plays song but doesn't add it to the library.

If you go into the options on media player and click the LIBRARY tab, then the MONITOR FOLDERS button there is a check box in the advanced options bit for adding files to the library that have been previously deleted. Make sure it is checked.

By default media player adds files to the library by monitoring folders it thinks you are likely to keep you music in. However, if a file has been deleted from the library at some stage, it assumes you no longer want it in your collection and skips the file during future instaqnces of the monitoring process if the above check box is not ticked.

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 everyone. I may have posted this before but if I did, I can't find that thread. Anyway, in Windows Media Player, when playing WMA files, the music always skips towards the very end of the song. It's very annoying. I am using the latest version of Windows Media Player and this happens with all of my songs (which were all legally ripped from CDs that I own). Any ideas on what to do to fix this problem?

The only fix I can suggest is to STOP using Windows for your music. I use to rip CD's
and Wave pad to edit if I like. (Works on Windows Vista 2000/XP/2003/2008 and Windows 7) Say theres a live song with 30 seconds of annoying clapping, yelling and general audience commotion. I just use wave pad and cut it right out and save in a high bitrate 224kb usually.

I have three computers, and one of them has all of my iTunes music. I tried to burn it all to CD-RW's, only to find that when I put the burned CD-RW into one of my other computers, there was no song information (like title, album, artist etc...) In addition to using the burned CD-RW's to put music on my other computers, I was also planning to use them to back up my music collection in case it is somehow lost. All three computers are Windows XP Home Edition. I plan to delete the CD-RW's and then re-burn them...How do I make it so that the CD-RW's (HP brand CD-RW's) remember the song info?

I have used EZCD Creator for many years, There must be a trick I haven't learned yet. Or must be some other software that did it.
Whenever I burn a CD with .mp3s, The tracks always list as track1.cda track2.cda etc...
A friend loaned me a cd they made, and placing it the PC lists the songs as Aerosmith - Toys In The Attic.cda, R. Kelly - Bump N Grind.cda, etc... How was that done?
The person that loaned me the CD is not around so I cant ask them. Thanks!

A:Music CD shows song names?

You have to tell the prorgram to query a web site (usually CDDB) and it will download the names of the songs onto EZCD creator. It's in the settings somewhere, you have keep clicking on the tabs until you find something to query CDDB.

I recently did a clean windows 8 installation, and added my own music to the music libary again.
When I launched the Xbox Music app/tile, it started adding all wrong album and songwriter information. It even started to change the track names .
I know that this used to be a function in windows media player, but it was always possible to turn it off.
Can't find that setting in the new music app tough.

Does anyone know how I can stop Xbox music from messing up my songs?

A:Music App adds song info

Swipe in from the right and hit Preferences, then disable the "Automatically retrieve Album art etc" option

Can you confirm for me, did this actually change the files themselves? For example did it move or rename the actual file on disk? And if you open the song in another player like er VLC maybe, does it display incorrect ID3 tags?

Youtube audio is mediocre and compressed.

Best source is high quality rips from your own CDs, probably not what you want to hear. A purist would tell you to use a lossless method like FLAC or WAV. I use mp3s at 192 or higher bitrate and can very rarely tell the difference from a CD.

Hi ..
I have a good quality of .png format image files of a nicely laid out table image. I used .png because of the higher, to me, image quality.
Wearing out Bing/Google searches has given me many suggestions of online converts to free/trial applications with all very inconsistent quality results, i.e.: not worth the effort .  I tested converting the .png to .pdf image and .jpg image files to accommodate testing a wider breadth of programs with same inconsistent, i.e.: useless results.  I have some 80-120 image files I'd like to convert.
Cost is always a consideration, but I did not go into this without thinking I might need to purchase a converter/OCR to .xlsx package. I cannot seem to find one that says it works. I DO except the ability to trial/test anything before purchase.
Ideas? Suggestions?
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Hey guys,
Sorry i havent posted anything in awhile but my question is...

When your plug your iPod to your computer it shows up on the left hand side and says the name of it.
If you press on that and you look toward the bottom under the "Options" tab
one of the options is,"Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC".
I was wondering what this option does. What is 128 kbps ACC and should it be checked?


A:iTunes Music Quality Settings

Found this info on the web that explains AAC.
AAC, Advanced Audio Coding, is a technique for compressing digital audio files. Officially part of the MPEG-4 standard, it is most widely used to create small digital audio files. The current variant is specified in ISO/IEC standard 14496-3.
AAC is conceptually similar to the ubiquitous MP3 format. Like MP3, it takes advantage of deficiencies in human hearing to discard digital bits corresponding to sounds unlikely to be heard. The human hearing system cannot hear quiet sounds in the presence of loud sounds of a similar frequency; for example, a voice conversation cannot be heard while a jumbo jet flies low overhead. Known as auditory masking, this phenomenon allows the discarding of data with minimal loss of fidelity.
Also like MP3, AAC is a lossy algorithm, meaning the original digital audio cannot be recreated from the compressed bits alone. In terms of audio fidelity, however, there is no loss of data if the compressed audio is properly encoded. AAC claims an advantage over MP3 in this regard: while MP3 requires a bit rate of approximately 256 kilobits per second (kbps) to achieve transparency, AAC can achieve the same quality at 128 kbps. This allows AAC files to be roughly half the size of MP3 files of the same quality, and one-tenth the size of CD digital data.
AAC provides several other advantages over MP3. It is capable of handling much higher and lower frequencies of sound, provides up to 48 channels of audio, and allows the creation of low-latency audio necessary for two-way communication. For example, AAC can be used for compressing telephone conversations on the fly, whereas using MP3 would introduce delays in the audio. AAC also allows for Digital Rights Management, or DRM, which can be used to control how the audio file is used.
An area where AAC excels is in low bit-rate compression. Audio books, for example, don't have the dynamic range of music since they consist of little more than spoken word. Potentially, this allows for much higher levels of compression. Using MP3 at such levels of compression produces scratchy, hissy compressed audio not unlike low-quality cassette tape recordings. AAC was specifically designed to handle such applications properly.
Unlike MP3, there is no public, free version of the encoding/decoding algorithms of AAC. All AAC users must license the technology from the VIA Licensing Corporation. AAC is most widely used in Apple Computer's line of iPod portable music players and is part of the next-generation DVD specifications.

hi folks, a general question here.

i've successfully installed a cd r/rw burner, have windows media player 9 with nero plug-in, and have musicmatch to play mp3's.

my aim to ensure that when i burn music to cd, when i play this back on my music system (ie not my pc) that the quality is maintained as nearly as possible to cd quality.

a friend tells me that mp3 quality is less than cd, and my question is therefore, is there any reference site i could look at which will help me decide whether, for example, copying mp3's to cd (via a format changer?) is going to be worth my while in terms of sound quality.

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.

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.

I recently imported almost 3000 mp3 files into WMP and created a playlist with almost 500 songs. This took several hours to do. Now when I open WMP, it's empty! No playlist, no audio files anywhere. Anybody have any ideas?

A:WMP lost my music library!

Did you save the playlist. Logical thing to do if your making a large list. This happened to me a few times with Winzip with a Playlist of about 400 Songs. Luckily i saved my playlist after i add about 10 new songs to it.

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!

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.

A:Xbox Music Library

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.

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.

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.

I have "My Music" folders on three different machines. I want to merge them all as simply as possible into one single "My Music" folder. Most albums are in their own folders, but some are across multiple folders (thanks, iTunes).

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).

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.

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?

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.

A:can you convert your music to a ringtone

brianhemi said:

I have not found software to do this, but I have made my own ringtones. If your phone supports mp3 playback (usually most of the newer Motorolas do, I use the v710).

I'd convert the MP3 to WAV format (just for the sake of cropping to the 30-second length for the typical ringtone) and then converting the shortened form back to MP3.

To get the shortened MP3 to the phone, you'll either need a data cable (and required phone software) or MMS service through your provider.

Be careful if you are a Verizon customer as they often block these features from their phones forcing you to select from their ringtones and pay an exhorbant amount for each download.

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

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?



EDIT: Mods, please delete this thread, I reposted it in "Misc. Software". Thanks.

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:Windows 8 Music App Media Library frustrations!

This is not an audio problem (this forum section) but more a customization issue.

I'm using my Win 7 system right now and I see C:\Users\myname\Music as one location. Also C:\Users\Public\Music as another. Look in those locations.

I'm running Windows 10 (upgraded) on a HP Pavilion 23

I have some file in my music library which are incorrectly labeled (Wrong artist or wrong album etc) and I am not able to edit the information, only re-name the song.

On the "home" tab the edit option is there, but not accessible.

If I choose Properties>details>Remove Properties and Personal Information>Remove the Following...
I can click to remove the bad info, but it does not apply it to the file. (the info remains attached)

Is the only way to fix this re-ripping/ downloading the file?

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,


A:Can't Delete Selections from Music Match Library

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 Last Played
Date Last Modified
Date Added to Library
Date Last Burned
Last Burned To

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.

Update: it happens in all the libraries, not only in the music one. However in the computer explorer it doesn't, I mean, files appear in the first place.

Hello antoniomc, welcome to Seven Forums!

I haven't experimented with Libraries much so here's the link to the Libraries tutorials until someone can answer your question.

I have a dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu system.

I have about 20,000 music files in my collection, from many different sources. I have many duplicate songs from differing sources.

Is there a method I can use to analyze and compare two sound files, and then choose the one of "higher quality"? I am interested in consolidating my collection and retaining the files that sound the best.

For example, if I have 2 songs and they are both 128 kbps, stereo, and the same Hz, is there some other measure of quality I can use? I've heard of "Total Harmonic Distortion" but don't see it in Audacity.

Also, am I approaching this the right way? Perhaps I'm not thinking about this the right way, so any and all suggestions are welcome.



A:Objective measure of sound file quality (consolidating music collection)?

You may actually have to listen to them. Though higher bit-rates mean better reproduction of the original sound, it really only means that you have a better track if the original sound was better. Distortion will be heard better with the higher bit-rate tracks, too, so the recording is only as good as its source. A poorly recorded track could actually sound worse if it were truer to the original.

I am new to the forum. I have been searching for a solution to this problem for a while now and came upon this site by accident. I searched the forums already posted to see if the subject has already been adressed, but could not find any posts concerning my specific problem.

It is not a major problem, just an annoying one. My music library is on my D drive. Media player searches, finds and loads all of my music without any problem. Every time i boot my laptop and open media player, the music is gone and media player has to search the whole computer for all my music files again. It finds them without any problem, but i do not have access to my whole library for an hour on every boot up. Is this normal for windows 7. Did i do something wrong setting up my library and is their a fix for this?

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.

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.

A:Can I set explorer columns for data directory within music library

Hello EasilyConfused, and welcome to Seven Forums.

From within the Music library, you can change, add, and remove any columns you like.Windows Explorer Columns - Add or Remove
The tutorial below can help show you how to remove folders that you no longer want to be included in the say Music library.Library - Remove a Included Folder
Hope this helps,
