Windows 7: Deleting Generic Album Cover +

Deleting Generic Album Cover +

I've deleted all the albums from My Music. However now a generic album cover plus the names of the tracks remain in Windows Media Center. How do you remove the remaining information? I've tried right clicking them selecting Delete but it still remains.


Thanks The Photog

Have you tried removing the watched folders from library in media player then set it up again after you close it.

The Media Player is completely empty. A generic looking album cover + empty song tracks are all the remains in the Windows Media Center. I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to remove them..

How about going to Media Center, Tasks, Media Libraries,Select a library(music),Remove folders from library, Remove all watched folders,Check yes I'm finished making changes,Then click Finished button.

P.S. you might want to look at this post it may be of some help to you, Deleting sample files from Windows Media Player

I've made it that far. But for some unknown reason " Remove folders from library " isn't an option you can select. I can see it listed but you can't select it. I'm still scratching my head.

O.K. how about trying this in this post Deleting sample files from Windows Media Player you'll have to restart after, then you can go back and enable media center.
Just a thought, have you tried a reboot after the above suggestions?
