Windows 7: Messy windows media player

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, service pack 1
Messy windows media player

Windows media player has never been my favorite player. If the mp3-files dont have the correct names, or other information like tags and other information, the files are often in incorrect order or in wrong albums. Wmp looks very fancy with images from the albums f.eks, but where to find an exact mp3-file can be difficult. The way I have used wmp earlier and now is to use "my music" folder besides the wmp and drag files between the folder window and the wmp-window. My goal is to use the options and possibilities, so the wmp can work just like a folder in windows. Is it possible to "integrate" f.ex "my computer" in wmp, so you can work with the folder just like you do with folders without using wmp?

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

Looks adding the path "My Computer" in WMP12 won't be allowed.

If you click organize you'll have a tab to add new paths (see screenshot)

CDburnerXP works great - WMP12 works well for ripping (for now), but other than that it's a mediocre if not problematic media player

Yes, I tried to find a playlist today, one that I saved some days ago, but it was gone!

The name and icon is in the wmp-window, but its empty

WMP is made so fancy and looks fine and more, but what does that help, when it dint works?

Windows media player simply dont works :)

I dont need anymore help to fix this problem, cause im not gonna use windows media player anymore, except ripping maybe
