I'm more annoyed by not knowing which MP3 in the WMP Library is "real MP3", and which one is just backgourn music (in form of MP3 file) that's intended for karaoke.. The albums no longer appear in C:\ music library but they're still there under your username. It's almost a week now and it's still not scanned them all completely.And I've read around the Net, and most answers revolve around these few things already mentioned. As soon as I exit WMP, and when I come back after a while and open it - it again starts sucking those karaoke MP3 files into its library Hopefully someone can help with this.. As a workaround, I pinned my "My Pictures" folder to Favorites (to maintain easy access) and left the Pictures library empty. My music is on another partition (drive D) on the same hard drive. I just read a short article stating that Dell and possibly HP will not honor the warranty on damaged speakers if the user has installed the VLC media player.
Everytime I open WMP 12, it starts updating my music library. Then the next time I open media player it does the same thing. WMP12 will check each time it's run to make sure that any changes with the files are recorded within the player.
Incidentally, Libraries seem to track the physical location of folders so if you move them you don't have to tell your Library of the new location, which is a nice feature.

When that one account (but not the others) stopped receiving mail, I "repaired" and uninstalled via the control panel to no avail. A year ago, I created a custom Library and have been using it successfully until the beginning of this week (11/7/2011).
The library's folder location is similar to the following: C:\Users\USERNAME\FOLDERX Now, when I open the Library, it shows a listing of all of the files found within all...
