option" STOP Updating Windows Media Player 12 A problem which I had with WMP12 was my thousands of photos were being loaded up, WMP was in a constant state of `updating.` I never wanted my photos to be in the WMP library anyway as they are stored on an external HD and in a partion. The albums no longer appear in C:\ music library but they're still there under your username. I only add media files to the Windows Explorer Library so I can get indexed searches. I just freshly installed Windows 7 on a friends computer, they bought it from my recommendation, now they are upset cause their music in the music folder isnt being added to WMP, which is their choice for music playback, what is it I need to do, to add the music.

You can find this file in you local app folder: c:\Users\[your name]\App Data\Local\Microsoft\Media Player.What you can do with this file is mark a folder so WMP will ignore it and will not update any files stored in this folder.I'm more annoyed by not knowing which MP3 in the WMP Library is "real MP3", and which one is just backgourn music (in form of MP3 file) that's intended for karaoke.. The albums no longer appear in C:\ music library but they're still there under your username. It's almost a week now and it's still not scanned them all completely.And I've read around the Net, and most answers revolve around these few things already mentioned. As soon as I exit WMP, and when I come back after a while and open it - it again starts sucking those karaoke MP3 files into its library Hopefully someone can help with this..
