Hi All.

Today I downloaded some Free MP3 Music from All About Jazz, as I have done before. I put them into my Music.
I then made a new folder & named it AAJ Jazz. I dragged & dropped each music file into this new folder.
However.

When I click on AAJ Jazz & get the drop down menu there is No "Play On Media Player" Line. I can open the folder & play each track seperately, but not the continuous folder as with other Folders. What is wrong? Thanks.

What format are they in? Might be it doesn't know what default player to use.
Dragged and dropped - sure it hasn't made shortcuts rather than moving the actual files?

MP3. Each tune went into My Music. Then I made & named a new folder. Then dragged & dropped. Individual icons disappeared & appeared in new folder.Each one can be played individually but not the whole folder as in "Play with......". PJ

Unless the MP3's have to be 'tagged" (e.g. ID3) so as the player can list/display. Some mp3 organizers/players for example categorize/display mp3's if they are tagged so as to create playlist often in the M3U format. I use mp3 tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) to create/edit tags based from their file names. You might get better mp3 track info (for tags) by using (i.e. connecting) to a online database for mp3's (e.g. freedb). I reviewed such tools (I think) in my mp3 blog in my sig (under mp3 tools and utilities articles)

Hi.

Made a work around.
Made another folder, which had "Play with..." on it. Moved the dodgy folder across. Now select "New" folder & Play with.. & ok. Thanks . PJ
