  • 1. WMP disappeared and cannot be reinstalled
    I've been running WMP which came preinstalled on my Sony Vaio PC (Windows XP) since November 2001. Last month it simply disappeared from my machine. The only thing left was a shortcut in the Start Menu pointing to the not-any- more-existing folder on the "C" drive. I do have Norton Antivirus 2003 with up to date virus definitions and it did not detect anything suspicious that could have removed the program. Recently, I have downloaded WMP 9 to replace the one that disappeared. The download was successful but the setup was not. In the end it gave me the following message: "Cannot complete Windows Media Player 9 Series Setup. It was not possible to complete Setup. WMP 9 series was not installed. To update Windows, run WMP 9 Series Setup again." Running the setup again (and again...) did not help. Anybody any idea what could be wrong? Thanks in advance...

    I am running Windows ME with version 9.0 of the Windows Media Player on my laptop. I just installed the DIVX Codec (from and can now play DIVX movies using WMP -- but, I cannot use the reverse or fast forward buttons or the slider. These buttons/slider work fine on my desktop (running Windows XP). Does anyone know a fix for this (I'm guessing that it is a problem with WMP under ME)?? Thanks!

    Hi, I am trying to figure out how to make a new media player open when I select a new file, rather than have the file open in the same media player, I want to run multiple media players at once.

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.

1.Unable to add directory with m4a's to library in WMP 11

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?
