Hi Sven,

The view you show on the screenshot is not a library view so you will not have the option available.

You need to include your folder email in the music library then open the library and set the display options there - the library views feature only works in the libraries not in normal folders

Oh . Now I have the same view as you do, and I can get the drop down menu to select between Folder, Artist, Album aso, but nomatter which I select, it does not change from "Folder". Is there a trick to unlock this selection?

A few things that may effect things - as windows needs to have the album/artist data available to show the views.

  • Make sure that the folders are included in the windows search and this has completed indexing - libraries are included by default but it may take a while after adding folders to the libraries for this to complete.
  • make sure that windows media player and or windows media centre have completed building their libraries.
  • make sure you have read permissions on the files - this can be an issue if the files and folders were actually created in a previous OS such as XP or Vista

Media player has builded its own library, and make use if the .jpg files. Actually, it is MediaPlayer taht has downloaded the images along with MP3-tags.

All created in Windows 7, as I got the HDD after installing Win7

Still, I can choose the drop down menu, and see the choises, but when I select one of them, it just closes the menu, and stays in "Folder" with no changes at all.
