Windows 7: Problem with Windows Media Player - Playlists not showing

Problem with Windows Media Player - Playlists not showing

Hi folks,

First post, so hope i've got the right section!

A few weeks ago, I was sorting out some of my music library and by mistake hit delete and managed to delete my whole library. Was able to restore from recycel bin and re-sync everything with Windows Media Player.

But the problem is my playlists didn't re-sync. Some of them show, but whenever I create a new one, it shows at the top of the list until I close WMP, then it vanishes from the library.

I am able to play the playlists by finding them in the playlists folder outside of WMP, but am not able to edit them without having to delete the playlist and make a new one.

Is there any way of getting them to show in WMP again?

Really hope I have given enough info about the problem and hope it makes sense to at least a few of you.

Thanks in advance,


My System SpecsSystem Spec
