    I had a location for ripped music to go to but it has disappeared (shows
    nothing now) and when I click on Change, Windows doesn't allow me to change
    anything, How do I put in a location for the ripped music to go to?

    What version of WMP and Windows?

    Generally, the following steps should be enough to fix this: go to Start
    - Run, type "regedit", press Enter, and navigate to
    Find the CDRecordPath value (if it doesn't exist, create it as a new
    string value), and set it to the correct ripped music location.

    Thanks Tim. With your help I'm part way there. When I follow your steps there
    is no CDRecordpath so I right clicked, New, String Value, I typed in Value
    name: CDRecordPath but then I'm not sure what to type in for Value Data. I'm
    presuming it's not my actual file location but a sting of numbers? Sorry for
    my basic skills but any more help will be greatly appreciated.

    Absolutely nothing happens. Does not open any boxes or let me change anything.

  6. You type the full path to the folder you want the ripped music to be saved

    Thank you all for your input and help. I have fixed the problem. In Media
    Player I went to File, Manage Libraries, Music and there were 2 locations
    there that said "unavailable" . I deleted these and then it let me reinstate
    my original location. All works fine now.
