    How to PRINT a list of albums that are on my media player. Have tried 'media info exporter'. Can not get to do anything the directions said it would. Have XP even tried directions for Vista. How difficult can this be!

    Do you mean Windows Media Player or a portable Mp3 player?

    What program are you using that has 'media info exporter'?

    Please provide more details.

    I am using media player 11. others suggested download microsoft winter fun pack to get the media info exporter. It was supposed to open a window to the exporter when i opened wmp.Then I could export to excel, delete the columns i did not want and print a copy of what was left.
    I did this, (the usual download way. Tried the suggested way for Vista but that did not work) there was no window. Click tools,plugins, still no exporter. Contro; panel says i have the fun pack.
    Yes, this is me being lazy and not wanting to type the entire list of wmp and my flashdrives for travel.

    It's pretty hard to do anything with WMP. :)

    The simplest way is to get a list of all of your music files using Karen's Directory Printer. If you have the files for one album in their own folder and a standard naming convention it will make it easier.

    You can also get Mp3tag to fix up your tags and then use the Export function to create a report. You can choose HTML, text or even a CSV file to import into Excel. There are some standard reports and you can create your own although there's a bit of a learning curve.

    Instead of using WMP try MediaMonkey. It also has a report function.
