    "Awful (please enter at least 10 characters?) awful x 5"

    February 8, 2012  |   By pleiades357


    In no way any improvement over earlier versions. Lots more problems...


    I don't do anything very complicated with WMP. I copy cd's to put on an ipod for the most part. WMP 12 takes forever to start, often "not responding" for a long time, many of the problems I've had I'm told the software is corrupted, searches show many are having the same problems. Most of the time it opens telling me I have nothing in my library. Some items copied are shared in the wmp12 library and some are not and will not transfer over. For some reason the library decided to duplicate many of my albums and audio books, sometimes triple versions of cds that I now have to sort out in my "free time".


    Don't upgrade unless you like searching for solutions to the newest problem.
