Huge Media Player Issue
I've just come home to find that my WMP11 has just screwed up majorly. Pretty much, my music library is gone (the files are still there but WMP hasn't got any information on it anymore, so the library is empty), and it simply says "the Player is searching for digital media files in the background" - yet does not find any music - not when I play music manually, nothing. If I add the my music folder to the now-empty 'personal folders' dialog, clicking OK and reopening it just shows it was not added to the list.
I have tried rolling back to WMP10 and then re-installing 11 - no change.
I have also tried a 'repair/remove library' tutorial which involves deleting the database in Application Data / Microsoft / Media Index - the file was never there in the first place.
The video library is still there, as is the 'other' library and I guess picture library (but there was never anything in that one) - there are some other bugs here and there, like the "Share Media" dialog won't close no matter what button I press, and Media Player crashes altogether when clicking the SETTINGS button on that dialog - also, trying to delete playlists, videos, etc, will do nothing (no dialog comes up). Opening a song manually and then selecting "Find in Library" crashes media player.
If you could help, I'd be much appreciative.
