Can't Delete A File in Windows Media Player

7 posts in this topic

I have a problem. I have a file on my Windows Media Player that I cannot remove. I've tried to delete it. It's not in my music file any where. And defragging does nothing. How do I remove it? For further details look below at the screenshot.

There is a Billy Joel 'icon' on the bottom left of your screen shot. Do you have that track/album?

If you change the sort to 'Album' from 'Genre', does it show it as Billy Joel?

Have you tried a right-click on 'Unknown Album', then select delete from the short menu?

It shows up as an unknown album, song, genre, everything.

If I click properties, it shows that it has no length, no codec, nothing.

The music I'm listening to is completely irrelevant. It has nothing to do with the music.

This is one of several flaws in Windows Media Player library system. Sometimes you can delete such a record by trying to play it, then WMP will tell you it can't find it & will ask you if you want to delete the record.

If that doesn't here's a link to a thread about finding WMP media files & deleting them: TECHSUPPORT

I recall having a similar problem with an early version of WMV. What I did was rename the file and delete that. Don't know whether that will work with your file.

I can't delete it, rename it, rate it, nothing.
