    I've just transfered music across partitions - emptying "my music" and putting it all on a new drive for space and tidyness.

    Now no matter what options I select WMP thinks I have most of my music twice now ;) Once in the old location (where it was) and again in the new location!!

    This is very inconvenient. Does anyone know where the library data is kept so it can be deleted and a new one started or how can I reset it?

    Thanks

    (been a long time - I guess I didn't need any help!!)

    But this didn't work with my WMP10, so I had to try this:

    This only works for Windows Media Player 9. For Windows Xp with Windows Media Player 10 you need to delete the .wmdb file from the following location. Documents and Settings.....”Whatever your user name is”…Local SettingsApplicationDataMicrosoftMedia Player If you can’t find it there search your harddrive for *.wmdb files, that should track it down.

    ---------------

    That tip didn't work either as the *.wmdb file didn't exist!

    Eventually I figured how to get the WMP to remove the deleted files itself ;)
