  • What about this album? Could it be in a format that is not compatible with Windows Media Player?

    Bye.

  • okay this should resolve your issue:

    To convert the songs to the format that the Windows Media Player can understand, Open iTunes and do the following steps:
     1. Click Edit, Preferences and go to the General tab
     2. Click on the "Import Settings" button
     3. Change the "Import Using" to "MP3 Encoder"
     4. Click OK and go back to your music library
     5. Change to list view and select the first song in your library
     6. Scroll all the way down to the last song in your library
     7. Press the Shift key and then click on the last song to select all of the songs in your library
     8. Click "Advanced" and then "Create MP3 Version"
     9. Your songs should start to convert and depending on how many songs you have in your library, this could take quite some time
     10. Open Windows Media Player and press F3 or click File, Add to Library
     11. Click OK- Windows Media Player should start to search for songs on your computer and after it has finished the search, you should find the songs from your iTunes Library in your Windows Media Player Library.
