I have just got a Windows Phone 8, and so I can put music on, I have started to use Windows Media Player. I had a small number of tracks on my computer initially (about 20 or so) which were added to the library as expected. I have just transferred all the songs I want (stored on another computer that is used as a media center), which is about 4700 songs, but now they are there, they are not existing in the library and cant be found at all, except for a few playlist files that exist, that show up under the Playlists branch of the navigation tree.
I have tried clearing the music library folders, restarting, and then setting the folders again as they should have been (to the folder "C:\users\cgoddard\music", which contains numerous subfolders of artists, albums, etc).
I have also tried deleting the entire directory "C:\Users\cgoddard\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player", which has been rebuilt, but to no avail.
Even dragging and dropping the folders (one by one, or all together) doesn't work. The only way I can get them to add is to individually select the mp3 files, and drag and drop them into the library, but considering the sheer number of folders, this will take a very long time.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
