    I hope that they at least fix the WMP indexing bug.

    Don't start me on that, its a bloody nightmare. Especially when connecting to the music of my WHS> Everytime I load the server up WMP has to index which takes forever and slows EVERYTHING down. Needless to say I dont use WMP no more.

    Shame the SP1 comes with nothing worth noting. I've already dled all the updates.........

    edit: nevermind, that's not specific enough. Anyway, the one I'm referring to is regarding the indexing bug which causes indexing to max out the CPU with very large media libraries, often causing the system to hang temporarily.

    which one? http://www.sevenforums.com/music-pic...esolution.html

    or http://www.sevenforums.com/music-pic...brary-bug.html

    The latter seams like a missing feature, the former, a fault in the indexing service? I would have to immediately question AV and the like, it also sounds more serious and far reaching than just WMP....

    Yeah, there's a good couple of nasty wrinkles with the Libraries and indexing that Microsoft has yet to iron out. But I do love the features none the less.

    Does anyone else get the bug where you delete a file and it stays listed until you manually refresh? I hope they get rid of that it drives me bonkers!

    Yeah I get that sometimes, with renaming files as well.

    Amen to that, I stopped using WMP almost entirely because of that one - real shame, WMP is a great program otherwise.

    I can't use WMP at all, every time I go to use it it's deleted my entire music library.

    Moved to MediaMonkey now, and probably couldn't go back to WMP. Pity, because I was very happy with it up until that point.

    Here we go people. Use this hotfix to fix the indexing bug

    You frequently experience a music library issue when you access the music library in Windows Media Center or in Windows Media Center Extender
    You access a music library in Windows Media Center or in Windows Media Center Extender on a computer that is running Windows 7. However, it takes a long time before the music library becomes available.
    This issue frequently occurs when you perform one of the following actions:

    •You shut down the Windows Media Center Extender by pressing the power button.
    Note In a typical situation, you click Tasks and then click Close to shut down the Windows Media Center Extender.
    •You shut down the computer unexpectedly. For example, you shut down the computer by pressing the power button while you are using Windows Media Center.
    Note It can take several minutes to rebuild the music library, depending on the size of the library.
    You can get the update by requesting the hotfix

    I also hope they fix the standby problems among other things which are currently preventing me from putting my PC into sleep mode as it fails to wake most of the time, forcing me to pull the plug to get the system to boot again. And the copy command (including printscreen) not working sometimes - I originally thought it was just me not pressing Ctrl+C properly or something but it was mentioned on a podcast I listen to and it's been reported to MS apparently. I think there was at least another thing I'm hoping to see fixed, I'll post back if it comes to me.

    Edit: This wasn't it but I hope they do something to make safely remove work properly rather than just giving you an error if you run an exe from the drive or something, I'm not exactly sure what causes it but you'll know what I mean.

    Edit 2: I think this was it - for some reason whenever you open a CD/DVD the file desktop.ini is always waiting to be burned to disc and even if you delete it, it just reappears after a while.
