Windows 7: Trouble Finding Music and Labeling

Trouble Finding Music and Labeling

My music is saved to my library however when i open up windows media player and it searches the library for songs it isn't finding several CDs and it isnt transferring some of the song titles/album names over when they are labeled correct.
i would like to say that all my music is labeled correctly and the labeling should not be an issue.

also i cant even drag the folders manually into windows media player and when i right click the folders and do "play in windows media player" it plays them there but doesnt save them too it

"Add media files that you play. When you play a media file on your computer or from a removable storage device, the file is automatically included in your Player Library so you can access it directly from the Player."

that isn't happening - and it is really frustrating.

I imagine this issue has been addressed but i searched the forum briefly and decided to post when i came up empty handed.

I have even tried removing all music from Media Player and starting from scratch to see if that works and i cannot delete several albums off of it - but even if i could im doubt it would make a difference in the long run.

Thank you in advance for the help.

edit: All my music is MP3
