I use iTunes, BUT my husband and kids use WMP12. No, they can't switch to iTunes.
OK, so I had some "unknown" artists and albums. I picked one song and added album information to it, using Windows Media Player 12 ... big mistake ... for some reason, it combined a whole bunch of songs onto that one album, even though they are different artists.
I searched for several hours trying to find a way to make the songs show the correct information ... I moved them into folders with the correct file structure, tried to edit the tags ... couldn't in WMP12, tried Roxio ... WMP won't pick up the new tag information.
I found MP3TAG and was so relieved to find SOMETHING! YAY! ... except ... I went through and edited the tags to reflected the correct information. In some cases, I have the CD right in front of me. So I know the tag information is correct ... but how in the world do I get WMP12 to pick up the correct information? I open WMP 12 ... same wrong stuff, I close WMP 12 and go to the song and click on it to play, same wrong stuff
Should I delete the WMP library file and let it rebuild?
