  2. Building up a library on Windows Media Player

    Hi Jorge,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to rebuild the Media Library on your computer and check for the issue.

    Follow the below provided steps.

    • Shutdown Windows Media Player.
    • Stop the media sharing service. Go to Start>Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Administrative Tools>Services.
    • Right-click on the “Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service” and select
      Stop.
    • Navigate to “c:\Users\”your username”\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player. Now delete the files named
      CurrentDatabase_***.wmdb and LocalMLS_*.wmdb.
    • Start the media sharing service.
    • Now start Windows Media Player and watch it build up your library again.
    Hope it helps.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    What is the exact error message you get when you to try play files on Windows Media Player?

    I suggest you to run both Windows Media Player Library and Settings troubleshooter and check.

    Step 1: If your computer is having problems playing video or audio files in Windows Media Player, try using the Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter to fix the problem. The troubleshooter checks the configuration and network settings
    for Windows Media Player to make sure that you can play content you've downloaded and saved to your computer, or content streaming over a network or the Internet.

    Steps to run Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter are as follows:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Settings
      and follow the instructions.

    Step 2: If your computer is having problems accessing your collection of digital media files in the Windows Media Player Library, try using the Windows Media Player Library troubleshooter to fix the problem. The troubleshooter makes sure
    Windows Media Player is correctly installed on your computer, and checks to see whether your Player Library is corrupted.

    Steps to run Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter are as follows:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Library
      and follow the instructions.

    Please reply us on the status of the issue to assist you further.

    Windows Media player Library Windows 10

    Hi Pat,

    The error ‘Media library is corrupt’ occurs when the Windows Media Player library database has become corrupted.

    To resolve this problem, clear the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + R, click
      Run
      , type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click
      OK.

    • Select all the files in the folder, and then click
      Delete on the File menu.

    Note: You do not have to delete the folders that are in this folder.

    Restart Windows Media Player.

    If this does not resolve the problem, clear the Windows Media Player database cache files. To do this, follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + R, click
      Run
      , type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft, and then click
      OK
      .

    • Select the Media Player folder, and then click
      Delete on the File menu.

    • Restart Windows Media Player.

    Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

    Hope it helps. Do let us know, if you have any further queries about Windows 10.
    We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.
