The good news is that it will still find CD info when you go to add a CD.

I ran into this as well. Selfishly, I'm glad it's not just me.

I Have the Same Issue

I get the same "500 internal server error" message when I try to use 'find album info'. Was working just fine about a week ago, but not now. Like everyone else, I have over 500gbs of clean full album mp3 files and sure do not want to try to retag all of them. I use Mediaplayer as my playback and library orginazier, but I do my ripping using Exact Audio Copy/LAME and then import the files into Media Player, so getting the album info when ripping is not an option for me. Exact Audio Copy extractor and LAME encoder make a professional quality mp3 that is superior to even Media Player set at 320. Hey Microsoft, how 'bout a fix?

There is a "back door" around this, though I don't like it as well. You can still add the files to a playlist and edit them from there. It will allow you to edit all the necessary information about genre, album, artist, etc. The only issue I find is that sometimes it won't show the album art past the first song if you do it this way. It's a temporary fix for now though.

Possible Connection?

My problem seems to have started to occur about the same time I configured WMP to share (i.e. act as a DLNA server). Does this sound familiar to anyone with the problem?

The problem occurs on a very old system (XP) that has been working for years. There have been no system updates recently since XP is no longer supported. I also have a Win 7 computer but am reluctant to start using WMP there if there is a DLNA issue.

Server Is Problem

Reviewing Microsoft support pages indicates that the problem is widespread and affects multiple Windows versions. Microsoft has yet to own up to the issue -- their credibility appears to be suffering. I guess we just wait for Microsoft to fix their server.

I am also experiencing this issue as well. It is def. a server issue. Don't expect it to come back though, with windows 8 and windows 9 soon out. Microsoft just might be shutting it down :/

Windows Media Player 11 & 12

My recommendation to all is to download Microsoft's Zune player. It's pretty easy to use and tagging albums isn't too difficult. I like WMP 11 & 12, but either the powers that be are taking their sweet time to fix this "500-Internal Server Error" or they are subtly discontinuing WMP.

I agree with andrew129260 about the possible termination of WMP.
