Media Player 12 has me driven mad!

Hi Folks

Maybe it's my own fault or my ignorance, but some of the simplest tasks are becoming very difficult in WMP 12 I feel. The latest one is that I have a folder of 6 tracks on my desktop, and I want to burn them. So Im trying to get them into WMP 10. Again maybe its not WMP 12 but a Win 7 issue. I just dont know where to put them! In Win 7 I have:


Clicking on Music gives me 2 options

Music and Public Music

I dont know which of them if any is the correct one. I moved the folder into Public Music and it shows up there but doesnt show up in WMP12. Whereas many of the albums in WMP are located in Public Music when I display file location.

What am I doint wrong and why is it so complicated!!?? If only Monkey Media would rip to mp3 free of charge!

Thanks for the reply.

When I did this Media Player opened and the tracks appeared in Unsaved List in a pane on the right side and started playing. But they still dont show up in the library.

Its not really a user friendly program at times.

Click on 'Organise' then 'Manage Libraries' then 'Music'
You can add or remove folders from there.
