Zune software for pc(Media Player) cannot open mp3, when they are moved to music folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, I hope someone can answer this question here, because I don't think I can ask this anywhere else and expect an answer. Today I installed Zune to use it as my main Media player, instead of the pre-installed Windows Media Player on my Windows 7 system. I had previously put all my music into the pc's "Music Library" folder, all of the files where mp3's coming from a windows XP system and transferred there.WMP played these files with no problem. When I installed Zune, I configured it, as I was offered, when I opened it for the first time to choose where the sources for my media collection would be "drained" from, and I chose the music library for music, and the picture and video library (or whatever their names are) were already automatically selected.So, I opened Zune and the songs were nicely and rightly organised by artist, album and song and there was no problem in the playback of the songs. Later the same day, I transferred new mp3 files, from the same XP system as before, to the Music folder (IMPORTANT). However, Zune did not automatically add them to the collection, when I dragged and dropped them in, they were not added, along with the message that the file type was not valid, and I could not play the mp3 files through Zune, independently.However, when I moved a file out of the Windows Music folder, I was able to play it through Zune as normal! I can't think of what to do about it. If you have any suggestions, please share it with me. I hope this post will help other Zune users that might have the same problem. Thank you in advance! 
    P.S.: Is it possible that the files cannot be played, because they are of high(192 kbps) bit rate, in contrast to the one I checked that worked, that were on 128kbps?

  • Plus: Only for the songs I put lately, I can copy them from anywhere else to Music Folder, but I need special permission to copy and paste it from there to anywhere else. I think the core of the problem might be hiding at it.
