Windows 7: Album Issues With Windows Media Player

Album Issues With Windows Media Player

I have compiled a series of ~500 recordings; some MP3's converted from record albums, some ripped from CD's, and some downloads from the internet. When I attempt to organize my recordings into albums I am thwarted by Windows Media Player. For example, I have classical recordings from several CD sources, in their several original "albums". I would like to drop ALL classical recordings in to one Classical album. However, when I move the classical recordings into one main "Classical" album, the recordings from CDs move back out by themselves within minutes to where they were before - separate smaller albums with a few recordings in each of them. This problem only seems to occur when I have ripped a couple of recordings off an album that has a reproduction of the original album art visible as the album heading. How do I get around this?

Also, how does one "create" a new album from scratch in Windows Media Player. I cannot seem to do this.

I actually am having the same problem, organising mp3's into albums, even ripping from a cd, will not guarantee that it will go into the correct album in the player and the cover art is incorrect, alot of the time.

So I use a programme to sort this all out, its called mp3tag Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...) its free and works on windows 7. I use this until WMP is sorted out. You can edit "song title" "artist" "album" "year" and lots of other tags.
