Windows media player problems updating ripped songs
However, you’ll always run into problems with digitally protected WMA files until you convert them to MP3 files, which are more widely supported and create fewer problems down the road.
I am having real problems with Windows Media Player when I add new albums to the library.
I'm one of today's best-selling computer book writers, with more than 15 million books in print.
This website keeps you up-to-date on my books, and your computers. Instead, I see a message that I need to download a license to play them.
The album information does not automatically appear (I have it set so it is supposed to appear automatically) and when I use the "find album info" I get the wrong information. That is absurd and it makes the information unusable.
I am tired of having to put in the track info manually.
I have had no trouble using Rhapsody to rip my CDs to my computer.
Can I do something to change this situation or should I just use Rhapsody and forget about Windows Media Player? Seems I have a CD set that differ in title arrangement although look the same so some changes perhaps over the years or different versions for different countries.
To download a license for this file, click Download License .
You’re now feeling the effects of the copy-protection that Media Player snuck into your files many years ago.

Thanks again - I think the OP has a point if WMP only looks to one location to get album info.
