    Hi all,

    Just fitted a new HD one of the Samsung 1.5tb models.

    I bought this for storing my music on as a second hard drive, OS is Windows 7 64bit.

    I seem to have an annoying problem now, every time I switch on Windows Media Player it has to update media library? This is pretty anoying as before my music was just there, and Windows Media player does this every time I switch it on, and it takes some time.

    Now when I tried to move my music folder, W7 only copied the files over? And my new HD installed as New Volume.

    What have I missed? I guess there must be some silly thing I should do to make the access instant?

    i can only suggest using winamp v3, oldversion.com has it on there.

    this older builds of winamp are great and have no bloat.

    wmp is rubbish use winamp.

    I can't see how this could have anything to do with your drive so try the Windows forum.
