WMP12 Two questions

Hi!! I'm so sorry if I put this in a wrong place... I have two questions:
1. I have H: disc for music and I slected it in WMP but when I put another album in H: disc it's not in artist section. Can I somehow update libary myself?

2. I deselected video libary but when I click on video button i still see icon of videos but I can't play them and I can't delete them

Thank you...

#1 >> WMP 12 should automatically update it's library. As long as you tell WMP 12 that Drive H: contains all relevant music and drive H: is an actual hard drive, not a removeable disc, then it should add any media files to the library that are added to that hard drive.

Windows media player 12 library help!

#2 >> I'm not sure what you're asking here, but here's a simple answer. If you want to remove something from the WMP 12 library or remove it from your computer, simply delete the original file from it's place on your hard drive.

While in media player, select "organize" then select "apply media information changes". This worked for me when trying to get rid of items in the library that were no longer on the hard drive.

Have banged this thread in here as we don't seem to have a WMP section and to me MCE is different from WMP. Anyone found how to change the colour of the media player from the standard shades of blue? If so how? PS - I don't want to change skins, just colours.
