ok here goes.

I have the recent version of windows media player and after loading on all my music onto my secound hard drive i then attempt to get the player to search for the files. It finds all the media files (24000 of them) then attempts to add them to its playlist and crashes all the time.

I have re-installed a fresh version and it still does the same. I also have the same problem if i try and use the free version of real player. I aam currently in the process of correctly tagging allll of my media files. but i cant see how that can make any difference.

Any ideas guys or an alternative to windows/real media player. Ur idea wud be of gr8 help

i'd say winamp is the best fullyfeatured media player available. If it doesn't have what you need, you can probably find a plugin for it.

Another option for Media Player is to go to the Tools>Options and remove any checks in areas that mention monitoring your files and/or hard drive.

There is a note in those options that indicates you may have problems with the feature if you have too many folders....
