I deadpanned to the Apple guy, "Is that good?" He was also amused when I told B that I was uncomfortable with my computer looking into my soul and announcing its evaluation.

Anyway, new hard drive, five-day wait for the same reason that it takes that long to get Dapper Dan.

I can record the stream and upload an mp3 of that. Would that work for you?

So I go to my Windows Media Player this morning to find it empty, 10,000 songs gone! I googled the problem and I found you can "Recreate Media Library" in troubleshooting. I applied this fix but only 1,043 songs have come back. The other songs are still on my computer but not showing until I physically play them on the Media Player. Any ideas anyone?

You can't reimport the songs back into the app's catalogue? That is, if the mp3s files are still present, then it's a cataloguing problem, so it should just be a matter of reestablishing them back in the catalogue.

Yeah, I'm trying to figure a way to mass-import them rather than playing each individual song to get it into the library. The problem is the songs are dotted about all over my computer from different sources.

The archivist in me says to move all your music files into one Library folder, but short of that do a computer-wide search for all files ending in .mp3 (and/or .m4a), then import the results into your player.

Can't WMP do a scan of your system for media files? Having thrm in one master folder with whatever subfolders would certainly make this all easier. There's also going with another media player like vlc.

Ok Doc, I'm trying the latter, cheers.
