How to change the names of songs Media Player 10

Q: How to change the names of songs Media Player 10

I downloaded some mp3s and in Nero I burnt them to CD. The problem is they ended up on the CD without names or any meta data. I ripped them into my library with Windows Media player 10. Of course they were listed as unknown in Media Player. I went into Explorer and changed the album name. But the change didn't show up in Media Player.

I have a couple of questions about this. How can I make the change I made in Explorer show up in Media Player? Can I add information when I rip?

Thanks,

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

A: How to change the names of songs Media Player 10

I have used windows media player to sync up with my mp3 player. To change the song title, artist, etc I opened the media player, clicked on library and then right clicked on the song and selected edit. At that point, you can edit any information for that song.

Hi
Please help!! First time on a forum to fix my pc, a bit of a novice!
I was cleaning up pc removing programs rarely used, deleted tracks i never listen to from media player and also ran a defragment. My media player disappeared but could be accessed through “my music” in my documents clicking on a track opened the media player. During my clean-up I removed restore points but one from the day before remained, I restored and the media player has reappeared but still will not play all the tracks in my library. I can however play tracks that wont play in media player by going to “my music” (the track then opens and plays in media player even though it has just refused to play in media player) If I then select another track in media player the message “ A number of queued files cannot be played. To find information about the problem, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the icon next to each file in the List pane.” When I click on the blue icon it asks me if I want to delete missing track. I know the all tracks are still on my computer (in my music file) please help me to get my media player going. I am on xp. Thanks in advance

I want to extract a large number of songs from one of my Windows media Player playlists. Of course the songs are in a wma format, and I want to burn them onto a CD that my portable cd/mp3/wma player can read.

Does anyone know how to Extract the songs themselves? I have tried playing around in explorer and stuff but for the life of me, I can't figure it out.

The playlist contains certain songs from a ton of different albums, and I don't have the time to go and pick them individually out of each album to burn.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Well folks, not sure what I did, but I managed to duplicate all the songs in my Windows 7 Media Player. I have a three week old laptop with Windows 7; really struggling with file management and layout in "libraries", that is, easily accessing my music, some guitar software files, etc.; somehow I installed my music folder onto the WMP again . Anyone know how I can reverse this situation, so I don't have to go through every album and delete? Also, I have "test deleted" a couple of songs from the WMP library, and they are also deleted from the original file. I have selected "delete from library only" from the manage menu, but they appear to have disappeared completely. Baby steps please, as Windows 7 has me really spooked... I miss XP! Thanks to all in advance.

A:duplicate songs in Windows 7 Media Player

Thanks for your suggestion! I did find the problem, I had a duplicate music folder (all my songs) within the original music folder containing all my songs. Once I deleted the original file, the duplicate songs in the library disappeared. I suspect I may have inadvertently dragged it in there, as I have a very sensitive touch pad, and I am still getting used to it (always been a mouse guy). Have been using the tutorials on the Microsoft site, and that has also been helpful. Thanks again for trying to help!

My windows media player, version 12 for windows 7, does not find my songs for my library.

i have set it up so that they look in a certain folder, i have checked that the songs are actually in that folder, but still no ball. for some strange reason, it finds them maybe one in ten times i open it, if i'm lucky.

i can open them to play them, but they still don't stop in the library. all that is there is the horrandous few songs that came with the computer, howver, they don't actually play either. probably just as well though. any help much appreciated. i have checked and the player is running on the latest update.

I purchased a new Cowon S9 Portable Media Player, and the software provided for me to update it with new music (which was JetAudio) will not correctly play MP3 files that have been burnt onto the system from a CD. The CD's are obviously legit and will play perfectly in iTunes and work on an iPod no problem. But the case is for JetAudio and Windows Media Player the files do not even show up in the player library and if dragged and dropped straight into the file path of the Cowon MP3 player's memory, this has the same result and no mp3 files will show. Does anyone know why this may be?

Hi everyone. My Windows Media Player (not sure which version it is but I have Windows Vista and the most recent version of Windows Media Player) skips towards the end of songs. They are .wma files. I tried Windows Update like the help file recommended but Windows is already up to date. Also, I don't believe the files are corrupted because they played fine on my old computer and WMP is doing this to all of my music files. I tried searching the knowledge base at Microsoft but to no avail. Please help.

This subject was discussed starting in October of 2010 between danfordan and longhair but it didn't seem to come to a conclusion. The original writer said he was having trouble using CD-RW's. I am having trouble using regular cd-r's. My system numbers are listed below. The first time I used the Windows Media Player to make a CD everything went great. I loaded the CD, dragged the four files containg 25 songs in each and made a great data cd with 100 oldies. When I tried to do it again a few days later to make a copy for a friend, the files were burned in the following order.....1,2,3,4,1,2,4,3 and I had 200 songs on the CD, 100 songs TWICE! Thinking this was a fluke, I tried it again using a different file. I used 279 different oldies totalling 660 mb's. When I burned it, all songs came up twice again. First of all, why is it burning twice and secondly, how does 660 mb's burn twice on a 700 mb cd-r???

I burned a disk of various songs with Windows Media Player, and then removed the songs from the computer. I would now like to put those songs BACK on my computer (using Windows Media Player) so I could put some on my mp3 player. However, when I open Windows Media Player and put the disk in the drive, I am not given the option to rip the songs. That option just doesn't appear. Oddly enough, a list of the songs on the disk appears on the right in the "list" area so the disk is being read. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all - Windows Media Player 12 - Windows 7 x64

So I have decided to delete several un-listened-to songs from my library on WMP 12, and ended up doing so in the Music folder, because when I right-click on the song in WMP 12 and select Delete, nothing happens. Literally NOTHING - no lag, freeze or crash -
it just ignores the fact that I even clicked delete. The songs that I deleted from the Music folder have not been updated, that is, they aren't gone from WMP 12, and I have tried to delete songs that ARE in my Music folder from WMP 12, but to no avail. I can
still play songs that are in my Music folder directly from WMP 12. Any suggestions!?

So the title says much of it, but I have music that I downloaded through the Itunes store that is not showing up for some reason in my WMP library. In fact, the vast majority of my songs do not show up in the library. I did not rip any of the songs, seeing
as I don't even know what ripping is or how to do it. I use Windows Media Player more extensively than Itunes, so it is really frustrating to not have most of my music useable. 

A:Songs are not showing up in my Windows Media Player Library

Hi,


Based on my research, .m4p files are also not supported by Windows Media Player.


However, if you would like to play these music in Windows Media Player, you may use certain applications to convert the files to .mp3 and check if it works.


Hope this helps.

let me be a bit more specific. i have a 56" tv hooked up to my computer in a room with lots of lights etc... thats not the point. we host large dance parties and what i have done in the past is played music videos on the tv and then when we switched to a normal song i would have to turn on a visualization in itunes or whatever i was using. what i want to do is this:

1. create a playlist that has all my videos and songs in it shuffled (not hard i can do it in itunes and winamp)

2. (tricky part) i want the player to play music videos and when the program randomly goes to a song i want the video to switch to a visualization. that way i can setup everything and leave the computer alone all night.

now in winamp i can get it to go from a music video to a song and keep the visualization but not from a song to music video

does anyone know of a player that can do this for me? i hope i explained it correctly.

I d/l some songs that were playing just fine on WMP for a while until I tried to install Yahoo Music Engine. YME didn't completely install because it encountered some sort of problem. Now when I try to play them on WMP, it says it needs a security update, but then encounters error code 800C2F78. The Microsoft Web site only says it's investigating the problem, it's not on it's list of common error codes. We're talking about a lot of songs that I paid a buck apiece for. The songs that I ripped from CDs play just fine, it's only the ones I d/l.

Wasn't sure where to post this and it is a 2 part different questions. I decided to come here because everyone here is far more helpful then over on the microsoft site. Your lucky to get an answer over there.

My first question is I am modding my sims 2 game. I use to be able to copy the file into my downloads folder no problem. I did an update a few days ago and now all of a sudden as I am copying them I get file destination name is to long for the folder. How in the world do I fix this? I have renamed them and it helps but it sucks doing it when I never had the problem before.

Next question I asked on the microsoft forums over a week ago and no answer. My media player has doubles of each album. It really sucks when I am listening to my media player and have to listen to the album twice. I tried taking them out resetting it and at first it only put the first one and then sure enough it redoubled them. I don't know if it is because I have itunes. How can I fix this please? Is it because of itunes? Is it something I just have to live with and choose to use itunes or media player and not have both?

Thank you for your time and sorry for the 2 part question and if I posted it in the wrong place.

The thread title's poorly worded, but I don't know how else to describe what I'm asking.

Is there any sort of media player (windows) that will load multiple songs into memory at once for playing so that the HDD won't have to turn on every time a new song is played? I'm asking from a battery life viewpoint; imagine you've got your laptop in the airport, doing some word processing and listening to music. Would it significantly increase battery life to load an entire playlist of songs into memory and just access the HDD once time in a few hours vs every 3 or 4 minutes?

I have tried emptying the music folder and restoring the songs. I turned off my spyware and virus programs. These same songs will play fine in Limewire library and playlists.

Hello.

I've got all my music in an external drive.
When i configured bakups i selected that same external drive as destination to back up to.

Now, i added the music from that drive to windows media player and now, when the computer backs up, i've got this error telling me some files were omitted (namely all the music) because they're on the same drive as the backup's destination.

I'm going to use WMP because it's already there (regardless of there being a million better choices of media players/managers) so don't bother suggesting otherwise.

My question is: is there any special folder i should avoid backing up so this error doesn't happen? (like the one that contains WMP database)

More info:
Event type: Warning
Source: Windows backup
Event ID: 4106

Thanks for your help =)

Edit: The backup's error window gave me a link to more information; it's actually the log file but it's in Spanish and while i'm not sure it would help, i'm sure it wouldn't hurt.

A:Error when backing up with windows media player songs in backup drive.

Windows won't let you backup files on the destination disk to the destination disk. It ain't gonna happen. Change the location of your music files or the disk you're using for backup. It's not good to use a backup disk for anything else anyway. The disk itself becomes less reliable because a write fault could destroy your backup. What's the point of having a backup if you're not using it as a backup?

Lots of my music is in the form of "mixed CDs" where I have burned compilation Cd's of my favorite songs. I want to rip all these CD's onto my new laptop, but when media player can't find the album online it defaults to the "Unknown Album" and "Track 01", etc naming scheme. I need to be able to at least name the albums when I burn them.
I would actually like to name the songs after what album mix its on. For instance I would name a burned compilation album that I'm going to rip as "Summer 05" and then all the tracks in that album Could be called "01-Summer07" or something like that. That would be brilliant. How can I get something like that from media player?
 

A:file names for ripped albums in Media Player

You an do this in Explorer after the album is ripped.
Rename the Album folder, then open the folder, select all, Rename a single file (01-Summer07.mp3) and subsequent files will be 01-Summer07 (1) etc.

My hard drive failed a few months back. New HDD, reinstalled Windows 7. Reinstalled programs and games. Everything except Windows Media Player was fine.

Windows Media Player (12) was giving me a lot of problems with playlists. Any time I right click an avi, mp3, mp4, mkv, etc the item I'm adding to a playlist is added with some weird name and not the actual, displayed file name from Windows Explorer view of the file.

For example: A file named "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName.mp4" is now added to the playlist as "TVShowName.S01E01.HDTV.x264-KILLERS[ettv]" instead of just "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName".

Hoping to fix the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling, I uninstalled WMP 12.

When I reinstalled WMP 12, nothing had changed. Worse, now when I right click on a MKV movie file, there is no longer an option to "Add to Windows Media Player list" like I used to have and that I still get with MP4 et all movies.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this context menu issue and/or how to get WMP 12 to only show filenames in playlists? I've been all over Google for weeks now and I can't resolve either of these issues. I'm finally at my wit's end and have to ask someone...

Many thanks in advance.

A:Windows Media Player 12; context menu & playlist item names problems

Context Menu Solution
1. Reinstall K-Lite Codec Pack (I used Mega) and the .mkv files get their "Add to Windows Media Player list" context menu back.

Playlist File Name Workaround
1. Display the Playlist in the Library (not the list as it's playing in WMP).
2. Right click the funky file names and rename to the desired Playlist name.

Solved well enough for me.

A:How do I change my Dell media player

In either media player go to Tools > Options and select File types and check all the file extensions you want to associate with your media player. When you play one of those files, that media player should open.

How do I change my default media software? When I dbl click a music file, I want Real Player to load, not Music Match. I tried to unistall Music Match but there is a support file missing so uninstall is unsuccessful.
 

A:Change default media player?

Depending on what version you are using, these settings could be different:

Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.
Under the Content category, click Media Types.
In the Media Types dialog box, choose Make RealPlayer my Universal Media Player, then click OK.

Sometimes you may also have to disable the file types in other media players for the changes to take place. For example, to configure your RealPlayer to play Windows Media streams, you must first disable the Windows Media Player.

Is there any way to change a file to a Media player file?
I have a vidio file on my computer, and want to change it so that I can play it on Media player, at the moment i'm not sure what it is, but it only plays with voeh. Is there a way I can change it so it is a Windows Media player file? or what?
Let me know.
cheers.
 

A:Change files to Media Player file

ok what is happening here is your current player is playing these by default, it is set to run these types of files (whatever they may be) if you have media player 11 right click on the top bar->tools->options-> file types. tick whatever file these videos are, and it should start playing the files through media player rather than the other The process is much the same for other versions of media player. Now the alternative is to right click on the file then open with-> choose media player but that wont make them play through media player every time if that doesnt work (which it should lol) we will go from there.
