    Yeah random people have random glitches... that's just unavoidable in software.

    MacOSX Snow Leopard deleted peoples' whole accounts, data and all...
    Xbox360 has countless errors...
    My Satellite receiver has been known to freeze up and delete random shows off it's harddrive randomly.
    My iPod Touch locks up occasionally.
    My Linux installer destroyed the boot loaders of every operating system I had on my PC when it failed to install properly.

    Shit... just... simply... happens.

    That said, yes it's annoying that it's caused by DRM... but frankly it's better for Microsoft to support the DRM than to not support the content that's protected at all. Ideally they would push the content providers to NOT use DRM... but ultimately it's not their call to use it... and with all the set-top boxes that does what MediaCenter PCs do... Hollywood can simply say "Don't support us? Fine... people will just use a Tivo or a BluRay player".

    Can someone tell me how to only use mp3s in a set of folders above a certain filesize in my library? It was easy in WMP11. I have a lot of music mixed with sound effects, and the easiest way to distinguish them is by file size.

    I am going to install Windows 7 after I backup all my files to my external 500 GB hard drive (literally all my files from my laptop's hard drive, hidden and not hidden) to wipe out all the files for a clean start when I put in 7. So I can pick and choose what I like since I only have 23 GB's left out of 250

    It's going to be a long 20 hours..

    Why would you back up every single file? Most of it you don't even need or will never use again.

    I am to lazy to pick out the folders and files I need. Then again your right, just a waste of time but meh its a Saturday. I tried installing Windows 7 twice just doing the normal thing without wiping my stuff off, and it never finished upgrading for some unknown reason just froze, so that's why I am backing up every file even thou I'll delete it after I am finished picking out what I need.

    Kinda stuiped but meh I got nothing better to do except watch cartoons or movies.

    Install Windows 7 on a different drive. Then you copy the files you need WHEN YOU NEED THEM. After a month you will realize you haven't touched your old HDD for ages => your old files are old => reformat.
