While updating the default player
System Manufacturer/Model Number Dell Inspiron 530 OS Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit CPU Intel Core2 Duo E6550 Memory 4GB Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT Sound Card Realtek High Definition Audio (integrated sound card) Hey snapfire I would check default program settings and file associations.
Make sure that the programs you are using to open these file types aren't butting heads so to speak (ie: set WMP to open all file types it can and take away permissions for your "other" program.
WMP will work fine until I either press stop and then play again on the same file or if I click on a different file in Windows Explorer.
I've tried other media players and I get the same result.
So I can still get to pictures, and WMP doesn't index them. In-case no-one else has already - Right click on the music tab on the left hand side of wmp (underneath play-lists). The problem seems to be the intense volume that the VLC player is capable of could damage the speakers by burning the coils. How can I make Windows Media Player stop updating media every freaking time I start it up?
Need a simple "only index music, videos, photos, etc. It always hogs up massive amount of CPU power and goes into (Not Responding) for a min while updating. I've setup Windows Media Player how I want, and then use Sysprep with the copyprofile option ticked to copy all settings to default user.
I'm more annoyed by not knowing which MP3 in the WMP Library is "real MP3", and which one is just backgourn music (in form of MP3 file) that's intended for karaoke.. The albums no longer appear in C:\ music library but they're still there under your username. It's almost a week now and it's still not scanned them all completely.
And I've read around the Net, and most answers revolve around these few things already mentioned. As soon as I exit WMP, and when I come back after a while and open it - it again starts sucking those karaoke MP3 files into its library Hopefully someone can help with this.. As a workaround, I pinned my "My Pictures" folder to Favorites (to maintain easy access) and left the Pictures library empty. My music is on another partition (drive D) on the same hard drive. I just read a short article stating that Dell and possibly HP will not honor the warranty on damaged speakers if the user has installed the VLC media player.

When I connect my MP3 player to my PC, Windows Media Player pops up. On the bottom right of the Media Player, it keeps saying Updating Media Player (going on for hours). Im not getting the media from Windows7 anymore, but it still says updating media library. Select the library which you don’t want Windows Media Player 12 (WMP 12) to monitor. Right-Click on the library location and select Remove. Click Organize again and click 'Apply media information changes'. I've struggled with same problem for a whole day and found a workaround.
Now my pictures and videos keep adding themselves to the player. Second, when I delete a song, I get $IZQSPI6 added under OTHER / Unknown Album for each song I delete. There is a special file called "wmpfolders.wmdb" which stored information about all folders looked through by WMP.
If after viewing a few of them in succession, I press stop on WMP to direct my attention elseware for a few minutes.
When I come back and press play, WMP will just sit there.
