Windows 7: Windows Media Player - My Fault Problem

Windows Media Player - My Fault Problem

I generally use WMP to playback music in Windows, I like it better than any other programme that is on the market. I hate Winamp like a passion and iTunes is too bloated for general use.

Anyway I purchased music in iTunes M4A files and they showed up in my WMP library, then I ripped a CD as MP3 and that showed up in the Library, not at first even though they were the same artist and same album, they were seperate because they file types were different. I LIKED IT LIKE THAT, it meant I could play the same album and put my own songs in one and not in the other album eg. I could pretend I had DELUXE VERSION by renaming one album.

Anyway I did something and it combines the two albums, and now adds them all together, how do I make it separated again?

did you try adding the "type" column and sorting the songs by that?

If you have two different folders in your WMP library, one for MP3, one for M4A, then you could opt for the folders view on WMP.....and only open one folder at a time.

I tried that and it didnt seem to work, its something to do with settings.

They already are in two different folders, and I tried this and it seems to mix them up anyway, eventually!


Would uninstalling WMP and re-installing it, undo the settings, so it would go back to how it was?

Make a playlist for each of the folders.

Thanks I'll try that, but it won't be the same in all music view, but the playlists can have different albums.
