    It seems to have happened after I downloaded a Windows Live Messenger
    update...I opened WMP and the library was empty. I've clicked >File and >Add
    to Library but it doesn't find anything and it doesn't seem to retain the
    info when I select >My folders and those of others that I can access > My
    Music. All my music is still in my >My Music folder... I can add songs to
    playlist from their folder but they don't stay in the library. What the hell
    is going on!!

    Info: It's version 11.0.5721.5268
    OS: Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3

    Thanks
    Jenny

    Add specific files and click automaticaly update media information
    example: you have - C:/win/my music/ -> after it searches for further
    folders with files
    It should be - C:/win/my music/artist/ -> the 'artist'
    folder listed holds the actual files so that WMP does not have to look

    WMP should do this automatically

    so i suggest if the folder adding does not work
    reinstall WMP

    This sounds like a corrupted library. Follow the instructions at
    http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#medialibrary to rebuild it. Note that
    rebuilding the library will make you lose all play counts, and possibly
    ratings too.

    Regards
