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 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.

I just downloaded windows media player 11 today. My computer uses Windows XP professional.
When I try to play songs that I got through musicmatch (now yahoo! music jukebox) it says:
license acquisition failed! unspecified error!

i can play the songs fine in the Yahoo! music jukebox player.

I could play them o.k. in the old WMP because musicmatch was one of the online stores. musicmatch is no longer one of the online stores in the new WMP 11.

Any suggestions on how to play the musicmatch songs in WMP 11? I like to use WMP 11 to listen to songs and sync them to my iRiver.

Thanks,

A:Solved: Windows Media Player has grabbed all my music

eehhh windows media player is like a parasite... but where not here to talk about the program... first off..what do you mean by "cleaned it" because there's no reason that "cleaning it" will move or delete your music files... unless they were supposed to be quarantined... but that's not the case.. ok having a little trouble understanding you.. you can't find the files... but (this is the part I'm confused) if you open media player they are in your library... and most importantly they play?... ok well if i got that right..than fear not cause the files have to be somewhere as windows media player can play them... so they MUST be somewhere... the first thing that i can think of is perhaps the reason that you "cleaned" the computer (idk what the issue was) has made your files hidden... these files are normally not visible to you... i would set the computer to show hidden files and look where they used to be... if still not there do a search again but in search options click search hidden files IF YOU KNOW HOW TO SHOW HIDDEN FILES DO SO, EVERYTHING PAST THIS IS HOW TO

To show hidden files open my computer (or any other folder) and click "tools" than "folder options" if using Win 7 or Vista(you shouldn't be posting in the xp section...but i forgive you ) you need to press the alt key with the window open to show "tools"

First, make sure that the list of songs is focused by selecting a single song. Then press Ctrl+A to select all songs in the list. WMP should then briefly show the total song count and duration in the lower right corner.Tim De Baets

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!

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.

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.

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???

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.

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.

When a song plays it skips or breaks up for a second or two in exactly the same spot with about 10 to 15 seconds to go in the song. And it does it song after song in exactly the same place....about 10 or 15 seconds from the end of the song.

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?

Do you use any of the "Enhancements" (View -> Enhancements -> Show Enhancements) by any chance? There's 1 there called "Play Speed Settings", perhaps thats set to something other than 1.0/Normal.

Hello,

For some reason, while playing music in Windows Media Player, the music often stops playing in the middle of a song, only to continue playing 10 seconds or so later. My CPU hasn't had significant load on it either... and this problem has only started happening recently. The only thing that I can recall that may have caused it is installing the Intel Chipset 945GM drivers, but even after reinstalling my sound card driver the issue persists. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4727, and the sound card is Realtek High Definition Audio. Thanks in advance for the help!

Also, I don't know if this is related or not, but MIDI files sound very strange (incorrect instruments) when played under Windows Media Player; they play fine in QuickTime however.

A:Music Halts in Windows Media Player

Well, with my experience with my Creative X-Fi Gamer card i learned that either vista or the driver likes to pick just one program as a playback device. Say im playing Crysis, or Counter-Strike, with music on. I will minimize and it will stop, then maximize and it starts. This doesnt really help at all, but i just wanted to put it out there.. xD

My computer used to play music CDs, but now won't. When I try, I get a message saying "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support the file type or might not support the CODEC that was used to compress the file." These are commercially produced CDs, and they'll play on my car player. WMP will play other verbal audio recordings I've made, but won't play copies I've made of commercial CDs.

I've uninstalled a number of programs, and wonder if I might have deleted a file that was a shared file.
When I click on the Web Help button of the message, it just takes me to a general Windows 7 screen.

How can I find out if I'm missing the codec, and if so, how to find out what it is so I can download it?
I have an HP Pavillion Elite computer with Windows 7/64 Home Premium.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest you run the Microsoft fixit and check.
Fix Windows Media Player video, and other media or library issues

Next try, System Restore, go back to a time before you uninstalled those programs.

Hello,
I'm not able to play music on the Windows Media Player on my HP Envy laptop, and I was wondering if you could help.  The Media Player was working fine the last time I used it - a week or so ago - and the audio is ok - I can still play CDs &
DVDs.  When I click on a song from my library I receive the error: "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file."  I tried to troubleshoot the problem and then tried a few solutions I saw online, but haven't had
any luck.  It's a WMP 12 for Windows 7.  Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Jesse

In Windows Medial Player, I clicked on my Library, selected the music/CD I wanted to burn, clicked on "Find Album Information" to get CD photo.  When I closed that window, the information hadn't transferred - which was o.k.  When I "slid" my CD
over into the "Burn" column, I started getting blue exclamation points on each of the song titles - then all the song titles just, from the bottom up, disappeared - AS DID ALL THE MUSIC/CD's IN MY LIBRARY!!!!  Just slid away!!  Even on "Search" I
can't find any of them!
PLEASE HELP!!
AND THANKS!!!

I used to use WMP a lot because I like how it automatically organized my music then I started using Zune to play music but not organize and now I want to use the Windows 8 Music app and am running into some problems.

I have a subscription to Xbox Music and apparently it looked at my playlist and music on my desktop and sent them to my Xbox Music so it can stream the songs from Microsofts server to my laptop and Xbox which I like. The problem is it is redownloading all the MP3's I have as DRM protected WMA files of a lower bit rate often and then the DRM doesn't update and I can't play the songs even though the mp3's are perfectly fine.

1. How can I get it to stop downloading the drm protected wma files of mp3's on my desktop and have the Music App play the mp3's instead?

2. Can someone clear up how the system picks up my mp3's and adds them to a list that I can stream to my Xbox Music devices? Does it only pickup play list or all of my music>

3. Is it possible to have mixed play list with mp3's and wma

4. I am also getting an error eveytime it tries to play a drm protected wma claiming I am logged in somewhere else which I'm not so the Xbox Music server is completely useless on my desktop.

A:Music App, Zune, Windows Media Player

maybe you can see if this document helps you out:

it'll probably do a much better job than me of explaining.
