    I recently transferred all my music from one computer to another, both
    running windows xp and both with multiple desktops. Each user had different
    song ratings, and they did not transfer over to the new computer. Is there
    any file that stores the songs ratings that I can easily copy and paste from
    one computer to the next, or do I have to go and rerate all my songs (of
    which I have plenty)?

    There is an library option "keep my ratings as general rating" or something
    like that under options in the library tab.
    Maybe this helps

    You can also use the WMP Ratings Migration plug-in from
    to export the ratings to the files on one computer and then import them back
    on the second computer given those same files that they were exported to.

    I already deleted the music files from my first computer. Do you know if
    there is a seperate file stored in my documents or program files or somewhere
    else, that stores individual users ratings. Thanx.

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to transfer my song ratings from my old computer to my new computer. I found the 360 file from the old pc and copied and pasted it into C:\Users\username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player
    but it didn't work. Now there's a 372 and a 360 file in the WMP new computer.
    I also tried WMP Ratings Migration plug-in from but the plugin is no longer available.
    Is there anything else I can try please?

    Thanks for your help,
