Media player stop updating media library
p=688534&seq Num=4 In the instructions where it says "the arrow below the library tab", just click the "Organize" button. Here is a digest: After continuing to play with WMP for 2 hours, I decided to just go back to i Tunes.
It's much easier to use to manage my library, plus I found that Windows Media Player destroyed some of my albums - I had "best of" and "greatest hits" albums that were scattered to other albums just because some of the songs were the same. I'm going to try to clean up what I can, but it looks like i Tunes is the way to go for an integrated media player and manager.
I manually use the tools to find artist and album information and they are renamed and reorganized. I've seen the other questions about applications to do this, but I would prefer to use Windows Media Player if at all possible - I'm not a huge into perfection, but I do like an organized library.
But then, next time I start WMP, they are all back to unknown. I went through the settings once, changed a few things, and thought I was good to go. I would like to do this with as few media applications as possible.
You might set the Album and Artist fields properly, but then there's fields like "Album Artist" and the like, which might cause albums to break up or get scattered everywhere.
When you open up the same music file from a different location, Media Player will think that it is a new song and will add it yet again to your library resulting in various duplicate entries.
As you can see, if you move your music around a lot, such as after you organized the file structure, you can end up having duplicate entries in your Windows Media Player libary with some of the entires pointing to files that are now in a different location.
I was using i Tunes, but since I got my Android phone, I got rid of my i Pod and uninstalled i Tunes.
I'm trying to do things like keep music organized in the form , but Windows Media Player usually fails to load my music library (which is in the default location, by the way), "forgets" adjustments that I make to the tags, doesn't move songs to the proper directories, and doesn't rename files appropriately. I open Windows Media Player and I'm greeted with a message that says there are no songs.
