Default Windows media player problems

Ok, I went into a folder which contains music from different bands/groups/whatever(as i do every day). And then selected the folder of the music i wanted to listen to(like i normally do).

I then clicked on "play all" as i normally do, this then normally starts playing a song and has the otgher song i selected down the right hand side and plays them randomly.

However, when i pressed Play all this time it came up with a message saying

Confirm 'play' action:
Chosing to 'play' 20 items at once may take a long time and cause your computer to respond slowly.
Do you want to continue?

I clicked yes, and it only comes up playing one song, with none of the other in the right hand side. After that song has finished nothing happens.

This is all in Windows media player 10

ahh i see, i have the play all and play selection option on the left hand side of the folder(because the folder type is set as music).
I have now worked out that if i highlight all of the songs, right click, and click OPEN it works. however if i click play, or play all, or play selection it still doesnt.(it worked before)
