Adding media files

But if the file is located in any removable media like external hard drive or CD, it would not be stored automatically. You may have to add it manually.
Windows media player would monitor your computer for new folders or files of music, video, pictures etc when it starts for the first time. These searched folders would be automatically added to the media library. If you add or remove any files in those folders, it will be automatically updated in the library as well. You may customize the settings of the Windows media player for monitoring a particular folder.
To add a music file to the Windows media player, click on the down arrow which is located at the top of the screen. A drop down list with multiple options would appear.
