Unhappy Media Library (I Presume) Problem.

Hey all.

Whenever I get a problem these are the forums where I search the way to solve it, however, I got an problem which I can't find the solution anywhere and decided to, finally, make a registration.

Yesterday, I got a system crash while browsing the Web with Windows Media Player open, and I had to turn my computer off pressing the power button.

I think the problem started here, almost sure.

When I turned the computer back on, started Windows Media Player and bang, crash crash (those crashes where you have to force the computer to shut down). Tried to start Media Player 2 more times, without success.

This morning, I started Windows Media Center, and went to the Media Library option... What did happen? Crash.

I started to think that it was a Media Library problem, and not a Windows Media Player problem, as I first thought.

Spent the whole morning searching the web for a solution, and the only thing I've found was a way to manually delete the library if it is corrupt... Well, didn't work. The crash continues to happen.

I've found that if I double-click some media file, it opens correctly with WMP, but, if I go to Media Library tab, whoa, crash.


Hope someone can help me solve this problem, I'd be grateful.


Computer Details:

- Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13GHz)
- 2GB RAM
- nVidia GeForce 7900GS (256mb)
- 2x500GB Hard Drives SATA II
- Running Windows Vista Ultimate

Please tell me if further details are needed.

possible solutions:

driver updates, windows updates, spyware check, virus check, back up all data and reinstall windows, run hdd corruption tests, reinstall windows media player

I don't know the exact solution but try all of the above and the problem should eventually be fixed btw obviously reinstalling windows should be your last option

I've tried them all, except re-installing windows media player (and PC formatting, of course) because I think it's not a WMP problem.

Anyway, I'll give it a shot when I arrive home and I'll tell my results.


Thanks Saltynay. Appreciated
