WMP 10 wont find cd details automatically

  boo_hiss_boo 16:32 20 Feb 2005


I wonder if anyone can help. When I use WMP10 and I play or rip from a cd, the details of the cd come up in the window (artist album etc), however, if I change the cd to another one, the previous cd details are still stored in the window. It will play the new tracks but not automatically bring up the details of the cd. It will if I shut down the player between each cd though

Can anyone help with the setting I should be using etc

Many Thanks

didn't know if this just kinda dissappeared without anyone seeing or whether it just couldn't be answered, so I updated it to see if anyone could help but just did not see it when I first posted?

I can't think of an exact cure except right clicking the album profile and choosing 'update album details'...

However I too am finding Media10 a very buggy bit of software, which likes to go a little nuts every once in a while.

thanks for the reply, but I can't even find where I need to do what you said. Where is the album profile?

Thanks Boo

Try Tools - options. Then click on the Library tab and tick the box marked 'Retrieve additional information from the internet'.

Have not needed to do this myself so don't know if it will work but worth a try.

thanks, thats already checked.

meant to say, already checked and not working. Maybe this is just a bug I will have to live with and keep closing media player between cd's
