    I have a folder on my PC called Music and in that folder i have gig's of music. I click on a song, it plays and then stops at the end. The next song does not start automatically.

    How can i get that to work (Windows Media Player)

    All music stored on my backup drive.

    Have you tried selecting all of the files (Ctrl + A) and opening all of them in WMP?

    Select the files you want, hold ctrl if you want a specific selection.

    Then right click and select, 'add to media player list' or 'play selection'

    If youve got Vista or 7, select them and press play all, or play slection from the top navigation panel.

    Get with the 21st century and use a media library! Personally I love itunes, and it keeps all your music categorised nicely. But people still seem to have issues with apple...

    Blimey guys, does it matter! All i asked was a question! Be it a simple one or a difficult one, isn't it what these forums are here for? To help people out instead of bitching?

    The button to stop everything writing in capitals is labelled caps lock. It's located on the left hand side between tab and shift.

    You will probably benefit from suggestions of a decent media file player as well.

    VLC and MPC HC for videos, Winamp or Foobar for music.
