WMP11 Library missing 4000 songs and all playlists

    Everything worked ok until this morning. I have about 4500 songs, most of
    which were ripped from CDs using WMP10-11. Format is .wma lossless. Songs
    are on an external drive from my laptop which is connected and working. Now
    my library only shows 4 albums.

    I tried "add to library" which scans through my 4500 songs but does not add
    any--these were already added before and I guess WMP recognizes them as
    already added (?). I also have about 6 playlists, also located on external
    drive, but none are visible.

    Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions to restore view and access to
    my songs/playlists?

    After trying multiple things, I deleted the old database which forced WMP to
    create a new one -- now contains all songs and playlists again. Here's what
    I used for reference:

    Hope it helps.
