Windows Media Player Moving Files

  The Great Pretender 22:03 10 Nov 2005

Does anyone have a problem with music files being moved by Media Player. I like to keep all my music files neatly stored by artist then album but Media Player has an annoying habit of moving some of my albums to an "Unknown Artist" album.

Its very annoying. Does it do this to anyone else and if so do you know a fix?

I have loads of music files all played via WMP. I haven't come across this problem.

Are the files 'Tagged' with the Artists name's etc.?

Yes all the files are tagged - they all have the correct artist/album info etc, media player just seems to enjoy randomly moving some of them!

I have managed to fix this myself.

For all those interested you need to go to the library tab in Options and deselect "rearrange music in rip music folder, using rip music settings".

I hope this helps anyone else with the problem.
