    Hi,
    So here is what I'm banging my head with now...
    All my music files have been transferred from WMC where they worked fine (mix of wma and mp3). They are in a folder "c:\users\public\" with the structure "...<artist>\<album>\<track.ext>". They are "tagged". I can get the MP database to scan them because I see the scan results declare a "total" of "n" scanned and "n" added (or updated). And that is as far as I can get. MP shows nothing new under "Music" (just "Settings" and "Now Playing") and clicking "Music" gets me the same file navigation as I had before updating the database. Where is my glorious display of album art to navigate by?
    Thanks
    PB

    Is this using MP1 or MP2?

    MP1... but I've been able to put my problem down to an "order of procession". I knew I had no luck with the menu, but had I tried it after I sorted out the database import? Once where I had just "list" as a layout option I now had many others including "cover flow". Happy now! Just need to figure why playback suddenly stops after a few minutes. Cor, WMC certainly made softies of us who clung on to it!
    Thanks
