Windows 7: WMP 12 not finding full media library?

WMP 12 not finding full media library?

Windows Media Player seems to not be finding any of my 1000+ songs except for one. They are all located in the libraries so I see no reason for this to be happening. When I "restore media library" it sometimes finds maybe five more songs but no more. Could this possibly be an issue because I did an upgrade from vista?

Yes that will be the problem, you will need to go to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player and delete the contents of that folder and then all your music should start showing up, to find the AppData folder you will have to show hidden folders.
