I've been in the process of transferring my LPs to digital and cleaning up the sound then adding them to Win's media player. The problem that has surfaced is after listing 84 albums I cannot list another album. I have turned off the media service rebooted and media turns itself back on, which I understand it is supposedly not able to do. I have gone thru other methods of trying to fix media player but the problem remains. The only option that I seem to have at the moment is to reinstall windows which I would like to avoid at all cost. I would like to find a way to resolve this issue and avoid a reinstall of windows.

I would love to change to another media player but my receiver only recognizes window's media player. I've contacted them to see if they have adopted another media player but haven't heard anything yet.

I tried your suggestion and the problem still remains. I tried turning off media player again and rebooted. As it was reconfiguring on reboot I noticed a message that appeared on the screen "Failure configuring Windows features Reverting changes." With this message I'm not sure what to do next.

Just out of curiousity, what is the brand/model of the Receiver? I don't know of any hardware which is WMP specific. In most cases, you either output audio (analog or digital) from your PC into your Receiver or the Receiver pulls it over the network using DLNA. Neither of which require WMP. The only hardware which I know uses WMP is the Xbox (also a Windows product).


As to your actual issue, could be AV/malware preventing files from being updated. Could also be that Windows is just borked. You can run sfc /scannow to verify/fix Windows system core files.

Receiver is Onkyo TX 8050. The Receiver uses DLNA over the network and requires WMP.
I had been able to add albums to the library to a point then WMP would not accept another album.
SFC found nothing.

I don't see it noted above, but I assume that you are using WMP12. According to the Onkyo User Manual, it supports the following:

• Windows Media Player 11 • Windows Media Player 12 • Windows Media Connect 2.0 • DLNA-certified media server

So other media players which also support DLNA (1.5 or higher) should also work.

As to WMP, you could try an uninstall/reinstall as noted here: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/261...-media-player-in-windows-7-to-solve-problems/

Yes on using WMP12.
I had tried the suggestion you posted as I described in the 2 post above. Turned off media player, and on reboot I got this message "Failure configuring Windows features Reverting changes." I'll try and find another media player. It has been a while since I set this up and need to unsync WMP from the receiver. If you know of a way to change it let me know, if not don't worry about it I'll find a way to stumble into it.
Many thanks for you help.
