Why doesn't ALL music in 'My Music' end up in Media Library?

    I don't understand why ALL the files in 'My Music' don't go into 'Media
    Library'?

    I've got a few files that I downloaded from the Net. Then I copied them
    across from 'My Shared Folder' into the relevant folder in 'My Music'.
    However, some don't end up in WMP 'Media Library at all. Why not? Anyone got
    any ideas? (WinXP Pro - WMP9)

    TIA - Mike

  2. Hello,

    For the file to appear in your Media Libarary "All Music" node -
    (a) only supported filetypes will be displayed. Refer to MP's Help topic
    titled "Supported file types" for a list.
    (b) they need to be Music and not Video files.
