    I have seen other postings about this problem, but not solutions.

    I run windows 7 and WMP 12.

    I have a large number of albums which I bought before CD's took over.
    I have purchased a USB turntable and I am creating mp3's of the vinyl.
    The creation of mp3's works fine. They play in wmp fine and sound

    When I take the folder from where I create the mp3's (I have to split
    files, chop of long lead times/ exit times etc.) and move it to my
    music folder USUALLY wmp sees the directory and adds an album called
    'unknown'. I then edit the album to add it's name, who the musician is
    etc. and USUALLY that works.

    about 40% of the time however wmp only 'sees' SOME of the songs in the
    folder. It will play the others if I click on them in windows
    explorer, but it won't show them as part of the album in wmp.

    Part of the 40% it sees SOME songs, then later it will show me two
    copies of the album, one with some songs, some with others...

    A small portion of the time it just does not detect the music at all,
    so I cut the directory out of my music folder, paste it elsewhere,
    then cut it from the elsewhere and paste it back...

    How can I make wmp recognize there are new albums? This hit and miss
    is very frustrating and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it...
