I agree that WMP is crap, but Itunes is absolutely no better. I have no idea how apple made a music player such a resource hog, but they succeeded. Foobar is nice if you're going to be running it in the background 24/7

My main issue with WMP is that is incredibly stupid as far as layout concerned.

Everyone just wait for the Amarok port to windows.

D,i beg to differ on the layout. i find itunes too plain. unless you pay attention to the album names, you cant tell where one ends and another begins. and i guess i like having some of the "useless columns" like "Contributing Artist" because i have a lot of cds from various artists/mix cds, and i have a habit for cover songs, so i like knowing who the original artist is, so i use the "Composer" column.

but in the end, it all comes down to personal preference.

Ok. I sat down last night and started effing with the puter. I figured since the only real change that I had done was to add the "Dazzle" video capture device and software I would start there. I uninstalled all the software from that and I also deleted WMP 11.

I checked my windows movie maker and it recognizes the dazzle device so I ended up leaving it hooked up. I did a reboot and when I pulled up WMP 10 and clicked on the "burn" tab. It said "insert blank disk into D: drive". Yay. So I reinstalled WMP11 and everything is back to normal. I guess this software was giving me some problems.
