Some songs in WMP show no track length; how to fix?

    At some point my install of WMP 11 became unstable such that all songs I
    added to the database did not store a track length. For example, a song that
    is 3:43 in length shows a blank instead of the time.

    I didn't realize the problem for some time and added hundreds of songs to my
    WMP library before I noticed it. A reinstall of WMP 11 fixed the problem
    from that point forward, but I cannot find a way to tell WMP 11 to recompute
    the track lengths for all the older songs.

    I really don't want to have to those songs from WMP and go through the
    lengthy process of ripping my CD collection again. Surely there is a tool or
    trick to get WMP to recompute the track lengths. Right? Please tell me
    there is!

    Any help here will be greatly appreciated!
