Add music from your SD Card to Windows Media Player library

This solution is good for situations where you don’t have enough space on your hard disc, so you move it to your SD Card and have it plugged to the PC permanently.
You may have noticed that you are unable to select folders inside the SD Card. What you have to do is make the music folder on the SD Card shared (at least with yourself) and then add it to the Windows Media Player from the network share.

Fixing problem with ID3 tags on Windows 7 and Windows Media Player

Some of my music files in Windows Media Player did not show information about album, artist etc. I had them all in one section called Unknown album. I also found out that there are no meta tags displayed in the album’s folder.

To fix this I installed ID3-TagIT which was proposed on some forum.
After you install it. Open it and select a folder with corrupt files. then select all of the files which will appear. In the menu choose Extended Functions > Transfer/Convert TAGs or simply pres F7 key. In the dialog click on Convert TAG Ver. 2.4 to Ver. 2.3 and press OK. Finally save the changes. Missing information should appear in the music folder and tags should be OK also in the Windows Media Player.
