but just had to comment. I use WMP9 exclusively to listen to my music, but have NEVER created playlists. Instead, I manually select which songs I want to listen to or I burn them all to a cd of its own and play it instead. If you believe that there is a problem with playlists with WMP9 or any other version, and it could be related to how many songs are in the individual list, have you tried cutting back on the number of the individual list to see if it stops happening?
Something else you might want to consider is NOT updating to WMP10 because I suspect that that version will be able to detect any copyrighted songs and not play them (whether ripped from your own cd's or downloaded). I have no proof of this, but perhaps one of your latest WMP9 updates also included this 'feature' and that it is deliberately messing up the songs as it is detected.
I turn off ALL internet 'features' of WMP9, just as I did with all older versions, and so far have run into no problems......but like I said I don't use playlists. Perhaps if you turn off the internet options of WMP9, things will straighten out as well?
I've been having a problem with WMP9 (imagine that!).
I add mp3 files from my D drive(40gb)and edit into existing playlists. After a while, some songs start playing bits of other songs or video. I have taken the same songs from the D drive and added them to my iRiver igp-100 and to a Firelite removable drive and have never had this happen. I've tried using MP3 Repair on the files with no luck. I've noticed this problem only started after I had a relatively large(8+ gb) quantity of mp3's loaded on the WMP9. Is there an inherent capacity problem with WMP9? If there is, any fixes? I've downloaded the Domino Player in an attempt ot avoid WMP9(and it allows U to print playlists) but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set up separate playlists, etc. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any suggestions, links, help, etc.
