    Hi,

    I think this is just a setting in WMP; can you please provide us the EXACT version of WMP you have?

    Cheers!

    It turns out there are 2 versions of wmp ver.12; one is for Win7 and the other is for Win8/8.1.

    12.0.7601.1754 WMP 12 for Windows 7
    12.0.9600.17031 WMP 12 for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8

    So, can you please provide the EXACT version number you have on your system?? Here's a link to help you find where to look for this information: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/190990

    I don't have a Win8/8.1 system to test this on for you at the moment. I had an 8.1 laptop just go out my door this morning, but I forgot to check the WMP for you for that setting.
    You might try and download the NEWEST version I have listed above for you. Notice at the end of the version number, your version says ".16578", and mine shows ".17031". The version I have posted for you is NEWER than the version your are running. I suggest in the meantime, you download and install that version (12.0.9600.17031 WMP 12 for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8).

    In the meantime, you might take a look at Microsoft's WMP FAQ section here:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/add-edit-media-player-media-information#1TC=windows-vista

    You may find some useful information there. If you still can't get an answer, I might suggest you contact Microsoft Support with your specific question, and see if they can help you. Their E-mail support is Free, and they usually get back to you with 24-48 hrs. with a response.

    Good luck,
    <<<BBJ>>>
