    Does Windows Media Player get "full"?

    I decided to start using my Widows Media Player as a storage device for some of my CD's and for songs I wanted to download.
    Right now I have 21.5 hours worth of songs stored in it (Ihavent taken the time to add how many megabytes that is). The problem is..now when I try to add new music to it, I loose some songs that were previously stored there. Does the player have a memory capacity or is it a problem with my computer?
    I am currently 1 GB of RAM on a 40 GB hard drive. I still have 60% capacity left on the hard dive.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!!

    Maybe the library file is broken. I don't think there is a limit to the number of songs. What version of Media Player and Windows?

    I am using Media Player ver 11 and Windows XP. I did realize today that the songs that I have lost are all songs that I have downloaded from the internet. I thought that might have something to do with it.

    First, let's clear the existing Library file:

    First, make sure you are using WMP11 Beta 2: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...1/default.aspx

    1. Close WMP11, and Click Start -> Run...
    2. Type "%HOMEPATH%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player" (Include Quotes)
    3. Press Enter
    4. In the Explorer Window that opens, click "Edit > Select All"
    5. Press the Del(ete) key on your keyboard.
    6. Click "Yes" to the dialog.
    7. After the window clears, close the window.
    8. Now, fire up WMP11. You may have to reconfigure your settings.
    9. Click "Library"
    10. Click the little white arrow under "Library"
    11. Click "Add To Library..."
    12. Default settings should be fine. However, if you store your music somewhere else (other than My Music), then click "Advanced Settings..." and add the paths.
    13. It will find your music, and revuild your library.

    It's also good to note that in WMP11, that if you delete it from your Library, then it deletes the files as well. Check the Recycle Bin to see if there's any old music in there as well.
