Windows 7 Library Issues

My problem started when one day my library stopped adding new music i put in the Music folder.

I decided to delete the library and start again. This time the new music added as well. But many of the tags were missing and songs read as being 0 seconds despite being able to play them.

After removing WMP and reseting my library, i re installing WMP and updated the library. The same problem has happened again, except this time the files with 0 seconds are different to before.

This to me proves there is nothing wrong with the MP3s/tags (Explorer and other programs have no trouble reading the tags)

I must also point out that my media player folder (C:\Users\Xisuma\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player) grows to over a GB after adding all my music, is this normal?

Any thoughts on why WMP is not reading tags on MP3s? please leave a reply thanks.

I must also state that after re installing WMP i was playing MP3s and it was reading tags fine. Its not until there in the library that it goes wrong

The real WMP folder is in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player. With a disk cleanup, you can probably get rid of the extras in Appdata.

There is no problem with that folder. its only 7.3MB and there are no library data files there

Instead of adding the music files to the Libraries music folder try adding them to the Username>My music folder instead. They will still show up in your Music Library but you might notice that it works better that way.

They are on a different drive. And there isn't room on the C: drive for my music. However is there a way i can change the default location of that folder?
