I've discovered that Windows Media Player 11 is apparently incompatible with my Zen Vision:M mp3 player. Windows XP Professional won't recognize the player when I plug it into my system's USB port when WMP 11 is installed on my system. Rolling back to WMP 9 solves that problem (it won't let me roll back to WMP 10).
The problem is that I have several hundred mp3's in my collection that I have assigned custom star ratings to in WMP (a process that I've been working on for years), and I only want to sync high-rated songs to my Zen. After rolling back to WMP 9, I can sync to the Zen, but all of my star ratings disappear, so I can't selectively sync the mp3's that I want to transfer. If I revert back to WMP 11, my star ratings reappear, but I can't sync to the Zen.
My question is, can anybody think of a way for me to automatically isolate just my high-star-rated files into a new folder while I have WMP 11 installed, such that I can then revert to WMP 9 and then sync just that one folder... or is there some other solution to my problem?
My first thought was to add a new column in the Details view of the My Music folder that shows the star rating of the enclosed mp3 files, and then just sort the folder by star rating and copy the high-rated songs to a new folder, but unfortunately, star ratings do not appear to be a folder column that I can set.
