this deals with my windows media player. my computer is a dell inspiron 1501 with windows xp.
i have lots of music files. some are from cd's, some from limewire, some from youtube. i get the you tube files by using a program called listentoyoutube.com
it somehow copies audio from a youtube file and stores it in my comp.
all my music is in a single place on my comp.
sometimes, i go to those tunes, highlight several of them, and then click "open with windows media player". they appear on the players, and i turn them into a playlist.
i play the list several times over days.
suddenly, for no apparent reason, tiny blue icons with the small letter "i" in a circle--as in "information"--will appear next to certain songs. the message says, "windows cannot find file".
i go to the place on my comp where these are stored, and they are there. i can open them. i can play them with WMP. i also can again copy them as i described above, make my playlist, and enjoy it.........for a while.
but always, after a short time, they again disappear. not everything on the playlist, just these certain songs.
how can i fix this?
thank you very much.
