  • 1. User rating works only selectively
    Media Player 10 has tendency to selectively adopt user rating. I have maybe 5% of songs on playlist that I can not self rate, try as I may. I have even tried re-ripping the offending songs, but to no avail. Obviously Media Player thinks I am too harsh. Any ideas as to how to side step this problem?
  • 2. WMP 10 and a couple of problems
    I have 2 separate issues w/ WMP 10 that are driving me crazy 1: Files that I have previously changed info on (file name, artist, etc.) and moved to my sorted files area keep moving back to the folders that they were originally ripped to w/ the information changed back to what was initially there when I ripped them. This is very frustrating since I have a rather extensive CD collection I am trying to save to my hard drive and I have to repeatedly correct the same files. --- (This is BY FAR the more frustrating of the 2, since I have now found a work around for the second issue.) 2: (First posted 3/16/2005 1:22 AM PST w/ no replies) - When I try to rip a CD, WMP 10 is simultaneously ripping each track in both mp3 & WMA formats (It is set to rip in mp3 format). This problem has just recently started. I have tried closing/restarting the program & rebooting the computer. Neither one of these seems to fix the problem. The last disc I attempted to rip started out correctly ripping the first two tracks (mp3 only) but then ripped the remaining ten tracks in both formats. --- (I have since learned that this only occurs on files that had been previously ripped in WMA format and are still located on the hard drive somewhere. I can prevent this if I can locate the files before I re-rip the disc & delete the WMA files.) Any help on these issues would be greatly appreciated.
  • 3. attached files in outlook express
    When I recieve a wmv file as an attachment in outlook express all i get is the sound. If I right click on the attachment and save it to the harddrive and then play it everything is fine. I think outlook express is some how preventing the video from appearing. Thank you for your help with this matter.
    "To get information about the media you have selected, including... must change your Privacy settings in Tools, Options." OK, I know how to do that, but I have changed everything and it still doesn't work. I don't even know what I'm supposed to change to make it work in the first place. I looked in all the tabs and changed things that might conflict with it accessing the internet, but it still doesn't work and I have no idea why. Can anyone help me? ~Leashie

Does any one know how to add iTunes audio files (.m4a) into Windows Media 
Player's (WMP 11 for Vista64) library? Basically I would like to try using 
WMP to manage all my music libraries which was previously managed by iTunes.

All help is very much appreciated. Thank you.

WMP 11 can play these files just fine, I just cannot add them to the library: 
drag/drop says yes, but nothing happens. Monitored folder shows it trying to 
add but nothing is added.


2.Can't add audio files to WMP library


I am also having an issue regarding the issue of adding files to the WMP 
library:  I can find, AND play my files, but when I try to add them, I get an 
error message that tells me that the file size is too small; it then 
instructs me to go to my "OPTIONS" menu, and click on the LIBRARY tab, and 
then change the size in the box.  This does not work.

Any ideas?

3.Itunes m4A AAC Format in WMP9 Library

I want to store and play Itunes .m4a selections in WMP9. I can play them
since I installed 3ivx MPEG plug in. The problem is WMP9 doesn't show any of
the ID tag information nor will in add the files to my library. Can anybody
suggest a solution other than using the itunes media player and throwing
away WMP9?

I am talking about a huge .m4a library here and I much prefer WMP9 over
Itunes player Any plug-in available for WMP9 to solve my problem?

Thanks in advance for your help!

4.Cannot add M4a files to media library

Most of my music is ripped into M4A format.  Prior to WMP11, Windows Media 
Connect handled music streaming to my Xbox 360.  It supported the M4A files, 
so I could play them on my 360.

Now I was forced to upgrade to WMP11.  Lo and behold, It does not support 
M4A.  I've tried half a dozen plugins that supposedly add support, but none 
of them work.  The closest I could get was a plugin that was supposed to add 
both M4A and M4P, but ONLY added M4P -- which is useless, of course...they 
don't play.

This is a huge feature regression that is incredibly frustrating to me.  How 
can I get M4A added to my media library, and therefore stream them to the 360?
