Undo Remove Device from List

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Undo Device Removal in Media Share, Aug 12, 2008.

  1. Under the following link, there are good instructions on how to remove a
    media share device under Windows Media Player for Vista.

    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/dd550b2d-7d3e-498d-9ef7-3c200c6826af1033.mspx

    specifically:
    To remove the device from the list of available devices, disconnect the
    device from your network. In the Share my media to box, right-click the
    device, and then click Remove from list.

    My Question:
    I've misadvertently removed a device that I now need to bring back, but
    cannot figure out how to do that. I've tried all sorts of settings,
    including allowing devices to connect automatically, to no avail.

    Is there a way to reset devices removed form the list?

    Thanks

    I did the exact same thing ... sorry, no help here just wondering if you ever
    found a solution?

    I searched the registry looking for the MAC address of the device I removed
    and could not find it in there.

    Restore deleted device

    Try
    1. Disable sharing in media player (to any device)
    2. Reboot
    3. Enable sharing in media player. All connected devices should be there.

    At least this works in XP

    I know this thread is six years old, but it's a top Google hit for this problem, so in case anyone else stumbles this way... you need to right-click somewhere in the navigation pane (the left-hand pane showing Music, Videos etc as a tree view) and select 'Customise Navigation Pane', then choose 'Other Libraries' from the drop-down box. You will then see the device(s) that you had hidden and can check them so that they'll re-appear in the navigation pane.
