Windows 7: File destination name 2 long & mulitple songs in media player

File destination name 2 long & mulitple songs in media player

Wasn't sure where to post this and it is a 2 part different questions. I decided to come here because everyone here is far more helpful then over on the microsoft site. Your lucky to get an answer over there.

My first question is I am modding my sims 2 game. I use to be able to copy the file into my downloads folder no problem. I did an update a few days ago and now all of a sudden as I am copying them I get file destination name is to long for the folder. How in the world do I fix this? I have renamed them and it helps but it sucks doing it when I never had the problem before.

Next question I asked on the microsoft forums over a week ago and no answer. My media player has doubles of each album. It really sucks when I am listening to my media player and have to listen to the album twice. I tried taking them out resetting it and at first it only put the first one and then sure enough it redoubled them. I don't know if it is because I have itunes. How can I fix this please? Is it because of itunes? Is it something I just have to live with and choose to use itunes or media player and not have both?

Thank you for your time and sorry for the 2 part question and if I posted it in the wrong place.

Have you modified any folder permissions on your system, especially "documents and settings" or "users"?

What media player are you using? WMP? or something else?

Some older media players are not Windows 7 Savvy and they end up parsing your music folder twice due to the Documents and Settings junction (if it exists on your machine).

If that is the case, you will need to upgrade to a Windows 7 compatible media player/browser.

Sorry it took so long to answer. Live in Southern Cal and lost power because of all the rain. Any way I have the newest version of Media Player. I believe I have full permissions on my computer. How would I modify users/documents/settings?
