WMP "date last played" is inaccurate

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by mattjackson07, Jun 3, 2010.

  1. Hi, I'm using WMP 11 and Vista. I just noticed when I played a song at 8pm
    on June 2nd, it updated the "date last played" to June 3rd. Is there a time
    zone setting that can be changed? I've looked seemingly everywhere. Thanks
    for anyone's help.

    Same here, I think it's a Windows update bug. Probably will be fixed soon. Hopefully!

    What time zone are you in? Date last played is actually a combination of
    date and time, and WMP always seems to use GMT time to set it,
    regardless of the time zone that is set in Control Panel.

    If there's a significant difference between your time zone and GMT, then
    this would explain why it's setting the wrong date. For example, when
    it's 8 PM in the US, it's already the next day in the GMT time zone (8+6).
