if the problem is a new one why not use system restore to a known good time?

Hi Habs!

If you want to delete the corrupt database, do the following:-

Dclick My Comp>Local disk (C) >Docs & Settings> Your login name> Local Settings> Appl Data> Microsoft> Media player> Here you should find some files with a .wmdb extension; probably "corrupt Database_***.wmdb" and/or "current database_***.wmdb".

Delete both and start your media library again from scratch.

Hope this helps, Toxin.
