  • 1. WMC library questions. Removing duplication?
    I am a new user of Windows Media Centre with Vista Home Premium and have two questions concerning the music library. 1. My extensive mp3 music library is contained in a partition of its own (Drive J:) but I also have some mp3 files located temporarily in another partition (Drive E:). Some of the files are duplicated in J: and E: When I first started to use WMC it (by default) scanned all my drives looking for media files and therefore found the duplicates. Subsequently I realised that I did not wish E: to be scanned and therefore I removed it in the WMC settings menu. However the duplicates still appear in the WMC library display. How do I remove the unwanted duplicates from the WMC display? 2. I note that a 'Delete' function in WMC allows music files easily to be deleted from the library display but am concerned to discover that this function also deletes the file completely. This seems to be very dangerous and could easily result if precious files being deleted accidentally. Is there any way to protect valuable music files from accidental deletion? (I do, of couse, have a full backup of the music library but still believe that it is too easy accidentally to delete files) Thanks for any guidance Malcolm H
  • 2. Problem with recording...
    Hey there, I'm playing around with using Media Center, connected to my TV via media extender (360) as a possible cable company DVR. I wanted to see how it held up with a cheap USB tuner first before I started plotting getting a new media center PC with DVR. So far I'm impressed with the quality of the results, and I really like the idea of having a centralized DVR allowing me to watch recorded shows where ever. Problem I'm having right now is keeping my DVR recording. first time it worked great, but I only got the tail end of the show. But ever since it seems like it just doesn't want to keep record. Get's a few seconds then gives up. Could this just be symptom of a weak OTA signal? Or is something else up? Platform is 64b Windows Vista Utlimate Edition.
  • 3. 2005 showing as v2002
    I bought my 2nd copy of v2005 to build a new HTPC. When I loaded it to the new PC it showed in system info as version 2002. I found this out as I tried to load Zune software. Zune will not load on 2002. I loaded my first copy of 2005 that I had on my first HTPC, and it also showed as v2002. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How would we know. You don't tell us what machine!

Regardless, you cannot upgrade to XP Pro from MCE. You must do a clean 
install.  And why would you want to?  MCE is just Pro with a couple features 
disabled.

I want XP Pro because I want to add the machine to a domain and MCE doesn't 
allow it.

<Break>

Do not use registry repair utilites
they will probably do more harm than good.
Hopefully the utility has an "undo" feature
