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

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

Preferred Solution: wmp12 "there are no items in your music library"

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

The "library" is not even a real location...it'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 files...you can use a tool like Everything Search Engine - http://www.voidtools.com/ and use the generic file extension (e.g. *.mp3) to find all .mp3 files.

I notice Microsoft have given us 6 WMP12 library background images to choose from but only by using the registry hack ...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences

Right hand pane ... 'LibraryBackgroundImage'

REG_DWORD or DWORD if your 32-bit

Changing the value in the Value Data window from 0-6

6 being default and 0 being no background.

Sadly all six images look very similar to one another and so, are in need of a change!
I've hacked my way though the wmploc.dll and I can't find them.

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Does anyone else know a way to replace the library view?

Thanks in advance.

A:WMP12 Library view.

I was checking this out today, before i saw your post and opened the wmploc.dll with resource hacker and found the png files at the bottom somewhere around there. The problem however is that they are in binary so unless you have the patience to convert them to visible files so you can see the size of the new png to replace them with, and then convert your new png to binary, it is a pain in the .....
There was no need to do this, it is a way to slow down the hackers
"i could not find any programs that will do this fast"

Yes you were in the right place the files are in the wmploc.dll close to bottom and labeled clearly as to what they are - just use resource hacker and expand them all.

good luck

I like to stream music to my Xbox360 through Windows Media Player. On my current rig, though, I have always had a problem of WMP forgetting everything in the media library (even after a format/OS reinstall). Every time I want to stream music to the 360 I have to start up WMP and wait about 30 minutes for it to repopulate the library.
Troubleshooting I have attempted:
Uninstalling and reinstalling WMP
Disabled/reenabled streaming
Renaming the WMP database file to force a new one to be created
Renaming the Media Library
Unchecking all options in the Library tab of the WMP options menu
I've included a Problem Steps Recorder file and a DxDiag file. I've banged my head against google searching for a solution and even Microsoft's troubleshooting forums was of no help. If anyone has any ideas I would be forever grateful.

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.

A:windows deleted all items in picture library on harddrive

Are you syncing a smartphone with your computer via a USB cable? Depending on the device/OS, the device picture library overrides the computer directory. So, if your phone doesn't have any pictures on it at the time it is synced, it will merge the two libraries by deleting the photos on your computer.

Unlikely, but you'd be surprised how often this happens in both directions. Saw it at least 5 times a day at the apple store while I worked there.

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.

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: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.

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.

A:Media Center and music library

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?

Thanks,

Ivo

Not sure where this goes, but since I'm running a Windows XP machine...

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).

Impossible?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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!

Does anyone know how to do this?

A:My music etc. in start menu, link to root forlder, not library?

If you right click on the Library
Then go to properties. You can click on the original host folder and delete it and then add your own by clicking on include a folder

Hello,
This is my first post. I just installed Windows 7 and one thing is really annoying me. How do I shut off the feature that asks me to take ownership of every individual folder in my music files from my external drive before I can open them and add them to my media player library? I just want to add them the way I used to in XP or better yet just drag and drop the main folder into media player.

A:How do I add music files from external drive to media player library using windows 7?

This information should do the trick.You will basically take possession of the entire drive all at once instead of files\folders on at a time.I realize it says XP in the title but it should work for Win7 too.

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.

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:

mmjb.exe
mim.exe
mimboot.exe
mmdiag.exe
mm_Tray.exe
mm_TDMEngine.exe
mmjbburn.exe
mmjblaunch.exe
mm_server.exe

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:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/tips/hiddenfiles.mspx

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:

http://www.musicmatch.com/download/free/?OS=pc&DID=999990944

To ensure a successful installation, please save the file to your desktop before running the installation. If the installation is
successful, please be certain to restart... Read more

hi everyone
I want to know if i can change the default items that appear in the "SORT BY" menu for a music folder?
i mean when i open a music folder and try to sort its items i find these values
(Name , # , Title , Contributing Artists ,More)

but i usually want to sort it by "size" or "rank" , so i've to click the "More" menu item then add the sort values that i want to use ,and then i've to do this step in every music folder.

so i asked if there anyway that enables me to permanently change the sort items that appear in the "Sort By" menu?

A:How to change the default "Sort By" items for a music folder?

Click on Organise > Layout > Menu Bar to enable the menu.
You can then change the way things are sorted and grouped from within the View menu (Sort by and Group By).
Once you've done this, do Tools > Folder Options > View and the select Apply to Folders. However it may not change all of the views as Windows overrides some of them with it's preferred layout.

Hiya

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

The software currently known to mark new files as temporary is Canon Utilities ZoomBrowser version 4.1.0.46.

Hello dear TechGuys.
My english is freaking bad, so please, ignore it if it's possible ^^

Since I done my half-year Windows re-Install, the integrated WMP12 freakes out.
Everytime I restart the Computer, all tracks are gone and the WMP must search the tracks from the beginning.
Sometimes, the tracks are in the medialibrary, but 5 minutes later the WMP got all track double, he search after all for new tracks.
Maybe the problem is gone after I reinstall windows again, but to be honest, atm I'm to lazy to do it =/
And that's not the point, is there no way so I can reinstall only the WMP?

Afraid I can't help you with your album art issues, but I can tell you that it's not possible to change to an earlier version of Windows Media Player.
Version 12 is built in to Windows 7 and there's no uninstaller for it, and furthermore, earlier versions of WMP are not compatible with Windows 7.

You can turn Windows Media Player off, but that doesn't uninstall it. it simply removes it's shortcut from the desktop taskbar.

Ok, so I know you guys are the smartest when it comes to Windows 7 features, your tutorials and threads helped me so many times that I thought if you won't be able to figure it out - it's a dead end. I'm looking for some ways to change the looks of Windows Media Player 12 to something darker. Googling for awhile brought up only customizable background picture of library. Actually, I only use library view mode so it was useful, however I can't set it to anything dark because the fonts are black and also all other elements like toolbars, playback control buttons and now playing list remain same light bluish. Is there a way somehow to change everything about WMP12 visuals? Even the hard ways. I'm a not bad designer, if there's a way to replace all the images it uses in it's GUI I can surely draw my own. I hope you can help me on this.

A:Customizing WMP12 looks

Th easiest way is : go to Whats New - Featured Content . Download a complete theme pack, ar download a theme pack extra for a premium theme, if you dont want to buy the entire theme. Apply the stuff called wmploc.dll or Windows media player skin mod using 7tsp (download link is there) . You will get it.

Alternatively, you can change it manually using resource hacker.

When Microsoft started the "simpler" ad blitz for Win 7, they should have just said more like a Mac, don't think, don't try to configure anything, just use what we give you.

My complaints have to do with music files.

WMP12 - no Advanced Tag Editor.

Windows Explorer - can no longer change tagging via Properties in the album files.

Windows Explorer- album art files imported with their music onto a hard drive for this Win 7 computer do not show up. I was told to change the View config to Show Hidden Files. I did that, now some show up, but only some.

This is very poor. If I wanted a Mac, I would buy a Mac.

You have powerdvd so you should have codecs.
Try going to start/default programs.
Set media player as default and set all the defaults for it.

To make sure the codecs are working,put you movie in the drive,
click on start and type dvdplay in the search box and hit enter.
It should play in media player.

Hi everyone, I have a big problem:

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM today and I really hated the fugly WMP12, so I tried to revert back to WMP11, but somehow I terribly failed.
WMP is now saying that it's not correctly installed and I should reinstall it. I asks me if I want to visit the Microsoft site to download a new installer, but when I do, I am presented with a download link to WMP 6.4 for Windows NT 4. That can't be right...

Anyone know how I can get my WMP working again(I don't care if it's WMP11 or 12, as long as it is WMP).

Thanks.

OK so I can assume you dont have a backup to restore from, right? do you have the "WIN 7" dvd, to do a repair install?

first the safest easiest thing to do is to run a system file check to verify and fix your system files. to do it you go to start>search>type cmd>right click and run as admin>type sfc /scannow and tell us the results

Today I informed that WMP12 Update is available. I inter to the M-soft web page but I can do nothing because the Icon of Upgrading is inactive even I'm using W-Internet Explorer! Is there some way to solve this issue?

This is the Link Security component upgrade

A:WMP12 Update

Resetting your Internet Explorer and try updating. If it still doesn't work, it should have been automatically updated

Sony Vaio vpcel22fxI cant solve this so far. Fully updated fresh install of Windows 7. Windows Media player will play .wmv and audio but it will not play .mp4, .mpg and so on. It tells me error can not play file for .mpg and says low memory when I try to play .mp4.VLC plays everything with no issue.Installed K-Lite codec pack and no change with WMP. Rebuilt the WMP library and no change.Please help

A:W7 WMP12 Will not play .mp4 says low memory

You have VLC Player so why bother?Did you reboot after the K-Lite installation? Maybe you should try a different codec pack (uninstall K-Lite 1st):http://www.free-codecs.com/download...

Hi,

My main desktop, located in the garage, is running Windows 7 Ultimate RC. I just recently found out that WMP12 can stream any of my videos over the network. Cool feature! Well, I have an HTPC in the living room running XP MCE 2005 and would like to play video streams off my Windows 7 desktop.

I fired up WMP11 but could not find the WMP12 Library. I thought that maybe XP needed to be upgraded to WMP12, but the latest/greatest version is already loaded: WMP11.

Any thoughts, suggestions, workarounds, comments are greatly welcomed/appreciated.

Is there anyway for WMP12 to work in Firefox 3.5 (Windows 7 x64 RC 7100)?

I know WMP11 works in Firefox, but somehow Windows 7 comes with WMP12 and it wouldn't let me install WMP11.

Thanks.

A:WMP12 plugins for Firefox3.5?

It won't let you install 11 either! That was written and included in a previous version of Windows namely Vista. More then likely if WMP 12 is to work on FF you may have to wait until FF 4.0 or some new addon becomes available from Mozilla. Keep checking in their addon pages in case something new turns up.
