Windows Media Player 10 Guide: Adding Songs to Your Library and Burning CDs
 
4 Attachment(s)
Many people inquire about Windows Media Player…So here’s a guide! :idea:

This guide deals with WMP 10…different versions have different options. The newest version (as of now) is WMP 11…I have taken a look at it, and many of the options are very similar. The main thing Microsoft changed is the interface. It looks pretty cool, but doesn’t all new software? :wow:

How do I get music into my WMP library?

1. Open WMP…click on library tab…’Add to Library’ (see arrow)

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/attach...dd-library.gif

2. Click ‘by monitoring folders’…’Add’

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/attach...or-folders.gif

3. Browse for the folder that contains your downloads.

4. Click ‘OK’ (twice)

*Alternative path: Click file…add to library…by monitoring folders

So now you’ve got a music library…and you want to listen to it someplace besides the chair you’re sitting in right now…

How to burn an audio CD with WMP

There are several paths you can take to burn a CD with WMP…this method is my favorite:

1. Open WMP…click on library tab…current list button (see arrow)

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/attach...s-burnlist.gif

2. Select ‘Burn List’ from scroll down menu

3. Drag and drop your music files from the middle pane to the right pane. Make sure your selections will fit on a disc (compare the ‘Total Time’ to the time listing on your disc). Do not use the file size shown, since your music files will be larger after decompression.

4. Click scroll down arrow next to ‘Start Burn’

5. Verify that the setting says ‘Audio CD’

6. Insert a CD-R into your CD burner (or a CD-RW if it will play in your player)

7. Click ‘Start Burn’ :flame:

WMP will now convert your music files into audio CD format and burn them to CD. The CD will be ‘finalized’ during burning. This means you cannot burn any more songs to the CD. :focus: If using a CD-RW, you will have to erase the disc before you can burn it again.

Hope this helps :)

am having some trouble with formats...


am trying to burn a cd for my mom, lol.....


a cd of oldies from the 40'2, 50'2 and 60's.....


however, when I finish it will not play in her cd players....are her players just too old for the formats or is their a conversion i can do/use that will allow her to play the music ???


Thanx for your help..

If you have converted your files to CD format, then the problem doesn't lie with the format...

However, not all CD players will play CD-R disks. The good news is that you can probably get your mom a new CD player pretty cheaply!

Good Luck :idea:

Why is it so hard to get LimeWire downloads on to Windows media player
 
I've been sitting here trying to get songs to go to windows media player from LimeWire and I can't and it is making me mad....

whether protected?
 
hey, is the song downloaded is protected ? If so, you cannot burn in in WMP. Maybe you can use some program to convert the song before you burn it

I use NoteBurner to do this.

wondering why June 13th, 2007 01:46 AM

Okay thank you for that information but I already updated to WMP 11 and when I click on add to library it only asks me if I want to add it from my personal folders or from my folders and those others that I can access. WHat should I do cause when I tried to click from my personal it deleted all the song I had before.:laugh_2:
