Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

If you're looking for a program to simply play your music, then I would suggest VLC. It will play any/all formats of video/audio. It also has options for the most advanced of users.

If you're looking for software to manage, edit and organize your entire collection... The answer is simple. MediaMonkey is, from my experience, by far the best option. Here is a short description from their site:

Manage a movie / music library from 100 to 100,000+ audio/video files and playlists; whether Rock, Classical, Audiobooks, or Podcasts; Movies, Home videos, or TV shows; whether they’re located on your hard drive, CDs, or a network. Organize, browse, or search music by Genre, Artist, Year, Rating, etc., and never waste your time trying to find the files you know you have.
MediaMonkey is the movie and music organizer for the serious collector.
* Supports MP3, AAC (M4A), OGG, WMA, FLAC, MPC, WAV, CDA, AVI, MP4, OGV, MPEG, WMV, M3U, PLS, etc.

You could try the Zune Software. You don't need the device to use it. Its actually pretty nifty. you can organize music, movies, pictures and all that jazz. you should at least try it. or itunes.

Recommendations for music players?
Hi I've just started using Win 7 again after being a macboy for 4 solid years. Used iTunes a lot, but I don't like it so I'm not going to use it on my new Vaio. For DJing I will install Virtual Dj which is a very good free mixing application that allows you to drag and drop tracks in one of the...

Work Values - Team players are DEAD now SWARM players are at the Top
Hi there In my experience Management have been wanting "Team Players" but I think today that concept is DEAD. The Idea of a "Swarm" seems much better -- you network with all sorts of people who you might know just a little bit but you know when to get along with them and trust them. - A lot...

Music Players
I've been looking through many media/music players lately for several things. 1. A program with low memory usage. 2. A program that I can be skinned well. 3. iPod Sync support. 4. Can be minimized into a toolbar.
