I have Windows 7 Ultimate and have added my music folders to the library of Win Media Player, yet none of my songs appear in the library! What shall I do? Also, i have switched off many services, which are the services essential for the above to happen!
What do you mean "added my music folder to the library of Win Media Player"? Windows Media Player automatically searches your
Libraries for media and does not have any "folders" of its own.
Libraries can be seen on the left side of the screen when you click
Computer from the
Libraries allow you to customize what folders are automatically searched for content. For instance I do not use the
My Music folder that Windows 7 provides under
C:\Users\Typoknig\My Music, all of my music is stored on an external hard drive.
To account for this I had to right click
Libraries and select
Properties. There I was able to remove/add folders to automatically search for content. You may need to do the same if you are not using the standard
My Music folder.
Whilst inside Media Player, select Tools > Advanced > Restore Media Library. Allow it to close Media Player. Open it up again and see if it starts adding your music.
