I use WMP11 to rip and store my music and stream it to my SB3.

However I've notice that files where I've changed the names either to make them correct or to match the rest, while they change on the computer, they don't change on the sb..

I've tryed scanning for new and changed music and also tried removing and starting again but still it brings up the old names.... good knows where it is getting them from.... as both wmp11 and the file's are both the new name???? as In the Album name...

Does WMP11 store file names somewhere, and this is picking up on them or does SB do this and still getting an old file??

They still work and play but most annoying

Regards

Daz

You'll have to edit the file's tag, not (only) the file name.

sorry i forgot to say I'm ripping in wav format, which i understand does not store any data.

For example when ripped originally some like

now thats music 28

and then

now music 28 (UK) disc 2

so i have renamed them Now 28 - Disc 1 ..... Now 28 - Disc 2

wmp11 does not seem to automatically update album names only the song / artist names.... but I've also manually changed these..

however the sb3 still picks up the old names and not the new ones?
