Music files there/not there

Q: Music files there/not there

I just bought a new computer, HP 270-p043w with windows 10. My last computer did not have a lot of storage on it so my music files were kept on two external hard drives. After booting up and getting started I downloaded programs I use to produce radio programs; sound file converters, weather channel, vlc player, etc. When I first opened the drives, the music folders were denied to me, and ONLY the music files. Not knowing what actually happened they became available, well one did. The other drive's folder, is about 300 gigs of music and it shows only 1.9G. I have gone in and manually changed the sharing of the files but I have 600 to go! Also I produce my show on Cool Edit 2.0 even though I can access these files, media player won't play them and they won't load into cool edit. I am desperate for a solution as the Microsoft support wasn't much help. I have a few other problems but this one is the most pressing. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Music files there/not there

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.)

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

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

Hi
I had recently replaced my HDD with SSD,
So I had backed up & erased all the personal files including music, videos etc from respective folders,
Actually there is no files other than system files, programs, softwares in the SSD now,
I had done disk cleanup, defrag , clearing of temp, prefetch folders etc before starting the cloning everything from HDD to SSD,

After replacement, now I could see all my collection of songs/music in the Now Playing section of Music App (Modern app),
No music files are actually present for me to locate in any of the folders when I go through for explorer,

I'm not able to play the music files by clicking it from Music App , &
when i delete it from there by right clicking it - temporarily goes away but returns when i close the App and opens it again..

I had unchecked & checked the indexing option in the Music folder (File Explorer) - properties & restarted system, checked, But still all the music files are listed in the App,

Could anyone suggest on how to clear the music file listings from the Music app permanently which are not really present in the system?

A:Music App lists music files not present in SSD :(

Try to right click and un-install it. Then install it again from the store. Hopefully that will clear it out.

Hello,

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

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

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

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

Thanks so much.

A:Organizing Music Files In My Music

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

Hi,

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

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

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

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

I posted this in the HJT Logs thread and they told me that it wasn't a malware issue, but to check on the Vista support thread.

I've seen both Ascentive and Viewpoint Media Player on malware lists and had both installed on my computer (both were removed via Revo Uninstaller). VMP is completely gone, but after I ran Ascentive through Revo Uninstaller, a file called "GUID" showed up. When I tried deleting the GUID file, it basically told me "access denied."

The main thing I've noticed going wrong is that none of my music files work anymore...it gives me an error message saying: Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.
