    Add other folder than library to WMP or Zune


    Hi all,
    having ordered a new sound card and speaker set, I've been thinking of gradually upgrading my MP3 collection to FLAC. I also still have a Zune HD, which I wasn't planning on replacing, which doesn't play FLAC. To this end I'd keep a MP3 copy of the flac collection for Zune to sync to the HD.

    Now the problem: Windows media player and Zune both look in the same folder for their media library!! So I can't tell WMP to look at the FLAC while having Zune look at the MP3 using the standard music library in windows... Is there a way to have either program look at a different folder than the standard library?

    Thanks in advance

    Lovely, apparently I couldn't look properly. For anyone who is looking at this for Zune, just below the folder selection there is an option to select different folders for Zune.. -_-'
