    I had WMP 10 scan my audio folder for all songs but for some reason many
    songs are not appearing in the library. When I try to specifically add one
    of these songs to the library (File-->Add to Library-->Add File-->Playlist) I
    get the following error:

    "Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error. This can occur when
    another program or operating system component encounters a problem but does
    not communicate the nature of the problem to the Player."
    Error ID = 0xC00D11CD, Condition ID = 0x00000000

    The song plays OK in WMP. I even tried to play it and "Add Currently
    Playing Item" but get the same result. Plays OK but can't be added to
    Library.
    Has anyone experienced this and have you been able to solve the issue?

    Thanks

    Even more strange. I was able to add the song to a playlist but the library
    won't pick it up

    All my songs are either wma or mp3. One of the songs I was referring to is
    "09 Pride.mp3"

    I checked my MDAC and I already have the latest. I rebuilt the library but
    WMP still did not add these songs.

    Files Found: 1400
    Files Added: 1038

    What's the deal?

    And the songs that don't show play normally in the player?

  7. I've had the same error "Error ID = 0xC00D11CD, Condition ID = 0x00000000 -
    Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error. This can occur when
    another program or operating system component encounters a problem but does
    not communicate the nature of the problem to the Player".

    None of the links have been helpful. I was trying to load music onto a
    Nomad II mp3 player. Some music won't load, & the error appears. However,
    in the past this wasn't a problem. All of the troubled music shows in
    playlists and plays in WMP 10.

    The Nomad II starts in WMP with the error message that "windows doesn't
    recognize this device." However, after closing this message, the player
    usually functions fine.

    I don't understand why this error is so hard to solve. Google has no
    solutions, otherl windows mentions don't apply. No one has written that they
    have found a solution to this which works.

  8. OK, problem solved. The bad guy here was the battery :0 ! It wasn't low
    enough for a "low battery" display when the Nomad started, but when I
    disconnected it from the usb cable the battery outline was empty. I replaced
    the battery, tried again, no problem. If there is a battery involved with
    anyone else who also received this error message, it might be something to
    check.

  9. Before I found my battery solution, I 1st used a free program to see if the
    uncooperativer music was recorded with some strange codec which wasn't on my
    machine. I compared the output to output from music which had no trouble
    loading (they were the same, MPEG etc, played using the same codecs). You
    might want to try doing the same. The program (which is free) is called
    GSpot, and is located at http://www.headbands.com/gspot/. It's primarily
    used for video, but works well with audio, and is very simple to use. Good
    Luck!
