Ripped two CDs to WMP music library.

Then created WMP playlist from those two ripped CDs.

Burned said WMP playlist to blank CD-RW.

Attempted ripping written CD-RW back to WMP library.


However, somehow now, ripped written CD-RW doesn't appear in WMP music library.

Instead, I now have the two CDs ripped to WMP music library not playing at all (file error symbol shows).

Interestingly, and also, I am unable to delete these two ripped CDs from my WMP music library and computer.


So, I now have two ripped CDs on my WMP music library and computer that won't delete.

I also have a burned CD-RW that refuses to rip back into WMP music library.

However, the burned CD-RW does still function as as a stand-alone CD on WMP.


Basically, I wanted to compile a personal "mix-tape" but am dealing with digital instead of analogue.


Assistance most appreciated.





Similar to above only involving Audacity.


Day One. Ripped(?) sound from YouTube video using Audacity.

Stored sound file to desktop as I was tired and in a hurry.

Day Two: I re-did the above but INSTEAD stored same sound file to WMP or something along those lines.

I now have an "Unknown Artist" in my WMP library and computer from the Day One effort that I can't delete.


Basically, I was in the middle of compiling sound material from YouTube for a "mix-tape" but started over resulting in rogue(?) file which can't be deleted(?).


Assistance most appreciated.
