yeah is it only that or does it also do that for other programs? might be because of the music file size? is it for all videos/audio?

I have over 25,000 songs. wmp accesses the internet to retrieve media info. wmp 11 does it and it doesn't act right until it's done. wmp 10 does it in the background, so it loads up faster
