    Some tracks are missing from Windows Media Player

    I always use windows media player for playing songs and videos. I can use a third party software like VLC media player but never felt its need because windows media player worked exceptionally well for me. However,from last two days,i have noticed that some tracks are missing. I don't know whether it is deleted or somewhere kept but i am sure that i haven't deleted it.Is there any method to get them back again?

    Thanks for posting your query in this forum.To fix your issue, click on start>>All Programs>>Accessories and open command prompt as Administrator. Use the CD command to reach to your folder which contains music. For example-"cd music". Once you reached to the destination, type "attrib -s *.* /d /s" command and hit the Enter button on your keyboard.Once done,open Windows Media Player and press "F3" and Restore Media Library to access all of your music again.Alternatively you can also reach there by navigating to Tools > Advanced > Restore Media Library.

    Hello there !!!

    yes dear you can get those track back.
    if you have not deleted from your system.
    if your track has been deleted from your media player library, than it can be
    brought back.
    but if it has been deleted from your system than it will be little difficult to revert back.ok??

    so,what you need to do that :-

    1. go to media player library.
    2, if you have recently played that track, then go to recent played track.
    3. there you 'will see the list of the track played recently.
    4. click on your desired track.
    5. right click on it.
    6. select >> open file location.
    7, now from there again add that track into your media player.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
