Windows 7: Am I missing something?

Windows 7: Home Premium
Am I missing something?

Whenever I put media into one of my library's and then open up WMP 12, half the time the new media never shows up. For example I add a song to my music library, open WMP and it aint there. I try the 'apply media information changes' button and then restarting WMP but it doesn't update.

The only way I know to get it to update is to either remove my music from the library and then re-add it, or to delete all of the .wmdb files. Either way its a bit annoying.

i know its not a big problem but I was just wondering if anyone else has it or knows a way to get WMP to find newly added media.

Thanks in advanced.

looks like your library database corrupted. Try this
While in WMP12 press the "Alt" key, under the "Tools" > "Advanced" select "Restore Media Library..."
This will empty your library. Just exit WMP and launch it again to reload your library from scratch.

hope this helps

Missing boot menu and missing data partition
Hi there, I'm still very happy with my XP Pro, but I thought I'd set up a dual boot with Win7 ultima 64 and check it out. So I popped in another hdd that was sitting idly in a drawer and installed 7 on it. I fully expected that Win7 would be able to see there's an XP installation and create a...
