    the default location is the music folder ,works for me ,as the rip process creates a folder with the artist name on it .

    you can turn it off and reboot computer ,and then go turn it back on
    go to programs and features .in control panel ,and on the left go to turn on windows features on and off ,its in the media section
    not likely it will do anything but cant hurt to try

    There were Unavailable Folders in the WMP drop down 'Organize'▼'Manage libraries'►'Music'. I removed them and WMP works!
    Thanks!

    Windows 8.1


    I am having the same problem, and would like to know. To me downloading a second Media Player is like giving up. With each issue I work through with Windows 8.1 I learn more about my computer.
