I have been cleaning up file tags (thanks to MP3TAG) , and adding data to the tags, prior to putting my MP3's into a new player. Somehow (?) I now have a song which is in MP3TAG, but is NOT in my Music Library (this is in Windows 7), and I only have one location for my music ... it is NOT there). MP3TAG shows one more record (song) than does my Library, and that is the one I want to delete. It shows with a Title and a date under "last modified". Everything else is blank. When I try to delete it, I get a Win7 pop-up window that says "You'll need to provide Administrator Privileges to delete this file" with cancel, skip and continue choices below. Continue ends up putting me into a loop of some sort. The PC just stays with that window on it, showing indiction it's doing something ... but nothing happens. I have to start Task Manager and kill MP3TAG to get out of it. I'm the owner and only user of this PC (and for that matter only occupant of the house). I killed the User Account setting, rebooted and it still did exactly the same thing. Can anybody figure this out??
I suppose the "phantom" track isn't hurting anything, but it offends and worries me, since the file/track/song does not exist in my library. Why is it showing up in MP3TAG and why can't I delete it?
Also, for whatever it's worth, if I try to "play" it from MP3TAG (my default player is WMP) it won't play, instead giving me another error message saying WMP can't find it (which figures, since it is not in my Library).
Thanks for any help,
