Windows 7: Windows Media Player Will Not Find Album Info

Windows Media Player Will Not Find Album Info

I am running Win7 with Windows Media Player 12. No problems until today... all of a sudden, WMP cannot find album info.

When it looks for album info, it just grinds around and around. Sometimes, it stops and says it cannot log onto the fai metadata website.

Does this have to do with the demise of Windows 7 or is there something else going on?

Find album info not operating on both machines. Must have to do with WMP being phased out soon. Not much discussion of WMP album info issue on net, though. Too bad we are loosing WMP, it was actually one of MS's better application products. I do have VLC as a backup, but I have never warmed up to VLC. Not really user friendly, some features don't work, still displays wrong album art....

Can anyone shed more light on album info on WMP?

Windows Media Player always displays album art
No matter the visualization I have selected (Even no visualization ), whenever I open WMP the album art appears. Is there any way to stop this? Many of my songs don't have album art, so instead the big music note is displayed.

Windows Media Player - Album Art
Has anyone noticed a discrepancy in how Windows Media Player 12 updates album art? What I mean is that if I'm viewing an album in the library, and I use the "Right-click, Past Album Art" command, the specified image is inserted into the library and DIRECTLY into the MP3 files (as they should...
