Ripped two CDs to WMP music library.

Then dragged songs across to the right into the create new playlist section from those two ripped CDs.

Burned the new playlist to blank CD-RW and deleted the dragged songs from the create new playlist section.

Attempted ripping burned CD-RW to WMP music library but it doesn't appear anywhere as far as I can tell.

Then tried deleting ripped CDs from WMP music library and computer using right-click and drag methods - to no avail.


May have done something else in between, can't recall.


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

Interestingly, the two CDs don't come up with their album artwork but do somehow remain - seemingly blocking the CD-RW burn.

So, how do I completely delete the two ripped CDs from my WMP music library and computer so I can burn the CD-RW in.

Sorry for the late reply. Just a guess here.... did the ripped discs end up in your "Music" or "My Music" folder/library? Try deleting from there maybe. Also check your CD burner drive for "files waiting to be written" and delete them from there if found

After the game, the King and the Pawn go into the same box...
