Preferred Solution: The Details pane - Can not modify Music's Rating and stuff

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: The Details pane - Can not modify Music's Rating and stuff

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

Good afternoon everyone, Here is the problem. I am trying to get a standard view for the files under 'My Music' and all subfolders. Does not seem to work. Let us take an example: In the My Music\classical\ subfolder all the subfolders below that are artists names and the files may consist of mp3, mp4, m4a, flv, swf, some txt, occasional mpeg. It seems that if the folder contains all mp3 files then I can select 'name', 'size' & 'length' and in folder options I select view>apply to all folders then it will display correctly. But not if there are mp4, m4a, and flv mixed or some other combination. Then (whoever is in charge of my computer) adds all the additional columns and I wind up clicking away to remove the offending details only to have to do it again and again. Is there a way to do it 'my way'? Thanks for viewing!

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64.

I believe that's what it's called, in Windows Explorer there's a load of Shortcuts on the left, how can I edit them, I'd like to remove unneeded things as well.

Also can you modify the shortcuts in the download pane? It has I believe 5 shortcuts on the left which I'd like to customise. In Xp I just used TweakUI to do that, but I don't know anything about Windows 7.

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.
Up till now I have tried the following solutions:
1. I have reset all the folder options in Vista by going to Folders/tools/reset defaults. (did not work)
2. After resetting the folders, I have also turned on the details pane option under Organize/Layout and the details under the Views. (did not work)

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Is the folder set as a "Video" type?
Look at the properties of the folder, and there you will see a drop down list for the type.

I would like to see more audio details in win10 file explorer preview pane, especially the channels and bitrate for movies in the *.mkv format. (I would like to see if they include DTS 5.1, languages, subtittles etc.)

Before the latest creators update, this information was shown in the preview pane (along other video-details). Now I can't get it back. Icaros doesn't seem to help in this case.

What can I do?

Hello, I was wondering about the possibility to increase the images thumbnail size on the details pane in file explorer, and to make the panel maller than allowed by default. Is it possible?
Thank you for your help

Answer:adjust file preview size on file explorer details pane

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer
I do not know of way to make the thumbnail larger in the details pane. It is larger in the preview pane.

Since you haven't specified the operating system I'm assuming it's Windows XP. I have attached two images. In XP, right click the root directory (ie MY MUSIC) for your music directory then click properties. Then click the Customise tab on the top. Under the first section 'What kind of folder do you want?' Select Music (best for audio files and playlist). (see image1.jpg) Then check the Also apply this template to all subfolders. (see image2.jpg) This will do the same setting to all for the folders within the root directory of the music folder. Then it will do your mass change for you.

Hope this helps.

right now, if i click the customize button and choose "music" for my music folders, it shows 'name', '#', 'title', 'contributing artists', and 'album' as sortable columns.

i was hoping there was a way to customize which columns would appear by default in music folders, rather than having to right click the top bar and add different elements like 'comments' or 'genre' to each individual folder. (i'm a ocd music sorter, so each artist has it's own folder. it would be beyond tedious to add genre and comments to each folder, only to have those elements disappear when the folder is returned to default status)

any ideas?

Answer:Customizing Music Folder Details

First set the current folder to optimize for Music (Use the Music Template):
Right Click Folder > Properties > Customize > Choose "Music" from dropdown list

Now set the settings in the folder (view options, etc)

Now we'll apply those settings to all folder that use the Music Template:
Organize > Folder & Search Options > View > Apply to All Folders

Now if you have a music folder you just need to go to Properties > Customize > Music in order to it to display the way you like.

I've recently changed to Vista. In XP, if I "recorded" a song, I could right click the files, go to properties, and edit the details (artist, album, genre, etc.). In Vista, I can't find any way of changing these things. It is not a copy protected music file; its a music file that was recorded on my laptop. The name of the file is correct, but artist, album, genre, etc., are all blank.

How do I edit these files in Vista?

I opened them up in Adobe Bridge, and put in metadata, but this doesn't show up in the file information under properties.

Thanks!

Answer:Editing Details On A Music File

I would expect that you'd have to run Windows Explorer as an administrator to do this.

To do this, go to Start and type in "windows explorer" (without the quotes). At the top of the search box will be an entry for Windows Explorer. Right click on that and select "Run as administrator" - then try going to the files in Windows Explorer and editing their properties there.

Greetings all!

This is my first time posting here; I'll try and keep it short.

I want to get a reasonable computer rig setup for doing 2 things; (1) Getting a really good, comprehensive software RTA/EQ for doing spectral analysis(2) Doing some multitrack demos and arranging of songs, typical sort of thing.

Here's what I have to work with:

(1)Mine: A later generation Pentium 3 PC, about 2 or 3 years old with a completely cleaned off drive, ready for action, no software or soundcard. Scored it for $50.

(2)My Wife's: Near-new Mac G5 with Garage band, but it's supposed to be her graphic design workstation...don't know how much music I'll be able to do with huge design files and programs bouncing around in there.

(3)A bunch of Pro Tools plug-in Accessories which includes about 4 or 5 RTAS (stands forReal Time Analyzer, I'm hoping) setups.

Here's the questions...

(1) Is there a way I can get the Pro Tools plug-ins to work on the PC (Unix files, if I remember correctly)? Can I get them to work on my wife's G5 in Garage Band? What do I need to do/get if either is possible?

(2) Does Garage Band work on a PC?

(3) Is an M Audio Delta 24/96 Audiophile Sound Card a good choice for these applications? Is there a way to use the card outboard (connectors, etc.) if I need to shuttle a soundcard between my PC and my wife's G5?

Hi, I've had my music files for a long time, nothing has changed and I haven't done anything different in terms of music players.

The details for my music files (eg artist, song name etc) has disappeared in Windows Explorer but they show up in Winamp.
I am also unable to edit the file details. They're all mostly .mp3 files

Answer:Music file details disappeared in Windows Explorer

When you open windows explorer check option ?Views? and set it to ?Details? so you should be able to see file name, size, type, artist, Album title, year, track number and duration.
You can open windows media player, go to library and check if you can edit each file listed there.

I want to be able to copy my cd's to the HD so I can play them without fumbling for CD's which the rest of the family, seems to lose all the time . Now I know of some good DVR related programs (GBPVR, MythTV, etc.) that can do this, but I want to do it without the need for a display. Maybe some kind of web interface that I can connect to from a computer in the house and play a certain music file or album on the stereo the computer is connected to.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this one as I guess it is an account issue, I have four devices plus an Xbox One, my desktop, Surface Pro 3, 1520 and Xbox One are all working fine, but as of last night my HP Stream 7 has gone a bit mad, it signs in OK at start up and on the desktop all looks fine.
When I start Groove Music it just doesn't see that I have a music pass (I do and the Stream is one of four devices signed up and was working yesterday afternoon), I cant really get it to do anything, non of the links like settings work, the same with Films and TV, it just sits there, a grey screen, yet I can launch Edge, come on here and it signs me on, the Xbox app, email, calendar, just about every app that I can try seems to be working.
If I go on the web from my desktop and log into my account I can see all my devices, it lists my Stream as a Music and Film and TV device, I can even use find my device to see where it is.
If I go into the store from the Stream 7 and click on music it says "You have a music pass"
Anyone else experiencing anything like this on HP Streams, or more realistically on any devices.
All devices as updated as far as possible with the Stream on 10586.71 I have shut down and done a few restarts, getting no where.

Answer:Lost my music pass and some other stuff

I gave up thinking about it and did a reset, it gave me something to do on a Sunday evening I suppose.
The real beauty of the Windows account system over multiple devices and OneDrive is you can just wipe a PC and be back up and running in very little time with no issues on loosing data.
OK I have ended up with one album in Groove music duplicated somewhere, but 1 out of 300 isn't bad (And it will be found and severely dealt with) and I haven't bothered putting every app back on it.
And although I have done this, I was starting to think it was time to retire the Stream 7, yes its a fun sized device, but my 1520 is maybe just too close and faster/better in all but web browsing (Sensitivity issue only on web browsers).
I find myself updating it but not using it much, I used to take it to work but as stated I have the 1520 so why?

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

With the introduction of Athlon 64's, does this still hold true, or is the number they give them just a model number and not a reflection of their performance?Would a Athlon XP 3000+ provide the same performance as an Athlon64 3000+?To further muddy things, the Sempron.I know this has been introduced to go head to head with the Celeron D cpu, but how they rate the Sempron, is the rating a reflection of how it would compare to a Celeron cpu only? Or would the Sempron 3100+ outperform the Athlon xp 3000+?I've googled and been on the AMD site but haven't found anything to directly compare one AMD cpu to another with regards to performance.Any advice/info appreciated, dagwoood.

Answer:AMD CPU rating?

Have you been to the AMD EDGE / cpu support forum / sempron click hereQuite a lot of useful information on sempron's and other cpu's.

how do i get a higher score than 5.9 on my hdd as that the only thing holding back my score from being 7.3? i heard i need a SSD to get it higher is this correct?

Answer:HDD only gets a 7 rating of 5.9

You can't improve your hard drive's WEI rating without buying a new better one.

An SSD would be a sure fire way of getting your system rating up but I'm sure there are some high RPM hard drives that can do that too.

To be honest though a WEI of 5.9 will sure as fire run just about any piece of software you want 2 fold.

You have to remember that this is just a number and and will not drag your system performance down too much anyway, the only noticeable difference I would see from having a better WEI scoring HDD/SSD would be boot speed and local file transfer rates.

I'm building a new PC soon and am considering this case here:
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=32529

I like the look of it and the features sound good for my use.

The question is, this 350w case is only 5 more than the same one with a 300w PSU, the cases are relatively cheap probably 'cause they use a generic PSU, does anyone see a reason why i shouldn't buy this case?
 

Answer:What PSU rating do I need?

Consider:
* B.U.M.P. your previous thread or list the componets your using, which determines psu requirments. You've been building this PC for over 6 months now; & I'm afraid you haven't learned a thing.
Better to buy a good case w/ good internals & cooling, rather than buy a cheap case that will give you fits.

Answer:PSU Rating plz

http://forums.firingsquad.com/firingsquad/board/message?board.id=hardware&thread.id=111309

that is a good gauge for figuring out what is a quality PSU. it lists all of the major ones from best to worst to not-recommended.

unfortunately for you, you'll find that even a tier 2 or 3 power supply, and 3 is pushing the limits of quality, will range from 80 dollars and above.

one of the cheaper ones that i believe is good enough to run most systems, based off of what i'm told and recommended, is the Corsair CMPSU 450VX. it gives a lot of power for the price, and it's very high quality. 80 dollars from newegg.com.

anything below that price is pushing it. because when you start seeing 600watts going for 50 dollars, then you know you've found the low quality pieces of junk.

Been running XP Pro 32 forever.
Installed Windows 7 on a second hard drive with the following core following components.
Asus M3A78-EM motherboard
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+(2x2Ghz.)
4GB. of of DDR2 memory.

I like what I see in Windows 7 so far, and the performance seems just as good as XP, the install was fast and boot up time better.
Had to go to Windows update for 3 drivers, only 1 item did not not have a driver available,
An ancient Pinnacle TV tuner card, PCTV Rave, everything else is working.

I skipped Vista, but Windows 7 has got me interested, just have to get use to the GUI, and a couple other minor things.
My rating is 7.5/10 for Windows 7
XP is still ahead 8/10

Answer:I like 7 so far, my rating 7.5/10

What the hell is a 10/10 for you then?

Has anyone had a problem getting a Windows Experience Index rating?

I keep trying to get one and it won't work. The progress bar moves about 5% of the way and then stops. I have closed all running programs and let it sit for an hour. Task manager shows WinSAT.exe at 0% CPU usage.

Any ideas?
