Mp3 problems

Specs: Windows 7, 1.5

Hello again
I am satrting to hate windows 7 and very near of going back to XP.

Every now and then a new problem pops up.

This time it is all of my MP3 music.

Here is the problem. I have 2 other hard drives on my computer witch one of them has all of my MP3 music. For one reason it will not play and do not know why. With Media Player i get this pop up window
( Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.) I have Winamp also and does the same thing unless the file is in the library of Winamp. I even have a shortcut of my drive on the desktop and same problem. Help me please

ever thought that your PC is full of spyware? When weird things like that happen, that is usually the cause.
I would suggest doing some spyware and virus checks

Hello XpUser4Real

I have scaned my computer with Hitman, malware and spyware and nothing came up so my computer is very clean. I have noticed that this problem began after installing Itunes and then taking it off about 30 minutes after since it did not fit my need. So maybe it is due to that.

Thanks

why not try a system restore back to when it worked properly if you are sure your PC is not infected?

Now i might have found my problem. It is due to Itunes that changes the format of the MP3 so now i need to convert them back. But when i do try i get an message like this ( You dont have permission to open this file contact the file owner or administrator to resolve this problem. ) but i am the administrator. My music is on another hard drive on my computer and i canot do changes to them. But some mp3 file i can acess and why is that and some i cannot i do not have permission or administrator privileges. How can i do this please.

You can simply click on one or any .mp3 file on your other hard drive and it will play; correct?

Not sure what happened with iTunes but your quickest fix is likely to delete any playlists you have in WMP and WinAmp and create new ones that correctly point to the .mp3 files.

"It is due to Itunes that changes the format of the MP3"

"i need these files and mp3's for work"
You can use Frostwire, it is free and download the files you need. It is open source:

Hello XpUser4Real

I am wondering why you are giving me this Frostwire. There are much better way's to get music and also much faster then these kind's of programes. I am in the latest music that play's in the discotech's. I have a couple of gigs comming up and this is why i need these mp3's on my computer to get working.

Thanks anyway

well a simple solution would be to use an ipod if that's the way you feel, seeing that the MP3's are already converted.

The problem is that i am a DJ and witch i have no need for a Ipod. I need MP3"s to work with computers.

Any how i am fixing the problem the hard way.I have every file on CD's eccepter 2009 and 2010. So what i did is very simple. I deleted the hole hard drive and reformated it and then install all my cd's one by one witch i have hundred's of then and also downloading everything from scratch for 2009 and 2010 with i made an Winamp generated playlist before deleting. It is hard work but i will be ready for tommorow night.
