i need to move 2000 songs in to wmp. ive done it before but ive forgotten how. i recently had to reinstall my os so now i have to put all my music back on my laptop. i have all the music files saved in a music file on my desktop. when i highlite all the songs and then try to add them to wmp it doesnt work and when i open wmp it says that its searching for media and it finds like 5000 files and i dont even have that much music and the music that it does find is none of mine. so my question is, how would i properly move 2000 of my songs in to my windows media player library.

thank you for your time.

I'm not too familiar with wmp. but does it have a play-list that you can open in windows media player that directs the files in their "same location"? (assuming you keep the files in the same folder path?

It's not what you say, it's how you say it.

First, make sure all of your songs are in one folder in one place on your computer.

Next click the blue Library tab at the top of the page, choose Add To Library.
When the dialog box opens, choose My Personal Folders, then Advanced Options.
Click ADD, navigate to where your music is stored.
If it's stored in My Music, and you only want certain folders to be added, navigate to that folder and add it to Monitored Folders.

Click OK, the import process should begin.

Let it import, if you see it's finding other things, don't cancel the process. Only the songs in the folder will end up in WMP.
