Windows media player library not updating
There is a convoluted method of stopping services, deleting files and restarting everything that will fix the problem.
However that is a pain, as when I’ve fired up Media Center it’s because I want to watch a film, or listen to some tunes, not start manually messing about with services and deleting cached copies of stuff.
The decoder will cost you a few bucks, probably around .
(Although current boxed editions of both players are around –.) Media Player 11 has a redesigned user interface, as shown in Figure 8.1, to make it easier for you to manage and enjoy your digital media.
The other is the client (in this case the PS3) not refreshing the library from the source, for this you can do a 'search for media servers' in the PS3.
The issue is with Windows 7 using the newer SMB2 which does not like media players and XP etc.
You have to open up Windows Media Player, so that your libraries are refreshed.
Windows Media Player can play the file types shown in Table 8.1.
NOTE Vista doesn't come from Microsoft with DVD playback capability, except in the editions containing Media Center—Vista Home Premium and Vista Ulimate.
So I wrote a script to do it all for me, and seeing as I couldn’t find one anywhere else, I tarted it up a bit, and made it easy to install.
You can launch it from an icon on your desktop, it will stop Media Center, flush the cache, then restart Media Center for you. First download this zip file and extract the contents to your desktop. From within the ‘Refresh Media Library’ folder double click the file (this will copy the needed files to your “Program Files” folder and drop the shortcut on your desktop). Whenever you want to update the Media Center Library simply run the script form the shortcut on your desktop.
May be you've got a rare (or older) album that can't be match to an image.
