    I have Windows XP Pro., sp2.

    I use Windows Media Player 10 to listen to music files. I put all my files and folders in My Music. Media Player automatically adds albums (a folder and sub-folder, the sub-folder having the music files) to the library listed in Media Player.

    But if I add a single file to an existing folder (album) it doesn't show up in the Media Player library. Is there a way to make it show up?
