My Christmas present was a new PC. It's a substantial, Windows 10-based HP PC. It replaces my still-functioning, but rapidly turning obsolete, 2007 Vista-based HP desktop. One of the primary reasons I use it is to maintain my growing digitized music collection. Giving it a fresh, just-out-of-the-box start I thought I'd rip a few Christmas music CD's onto it using the ubiquitous Windows Media Player (WMP) which came resident on the new machine. I thought that, certainly by now, the major annoyances which led me to abandon WMP long ago would have been addressed... but no! First off, very first disc, a factory-stock, Collector's Choice copy of Dean Martin's A Winter Romance, it tells me that it can't copy several of the tracks because the file titles are too long... but these are file titles which WMP itself generated. So I dutifully edited the file names, which for some reason contained a bizarre amount of information, down to what seemed to be a reasonable size, and moved the files to their rightful place with the album's other tracks. However, when I retrieve the album now, those tracks, which initially appeared where they belong, no longer show up as part of the album. Other albums I've ripped, to the same exact main album file location, aren't seen by WMP. Tagging and album info updates are still a major annoyance, too. I don't know what apparently half-assed service WMP defaults to, but it offers multiple versions of the same album, none of which are accurate. I know some of you are likely thinking that the problem here is, as my computer-savvy friends used to say, between the chair and the keyboard, but after my new experiences with WMP I installed MediaMonkey, as I had been using on my Vista-based PC, and every file is recognized and located correctly. A anybody else in Hoffmanland have any comparable experiences or advice to share regarding the latest version of WMP?
