I don't understand Windows Media Player 11




I don't remember how long I've had a copy of "Let it Snow" by Harry Connick Jr. I can say with confidence that in previous versions of Windows Media Player, I had the song categorized as Christmas or holiday -- but not ethnic. I'm pretty anal about how I categorize my digital music files.

I fought with this program for most of last Sunday, trying to burn a couple of mixed CDs. It was a frustrating experience. I lost playlists on several occasions -- after thinking that I had properly saved them.

And I find it annoying that I can't deactivate the setting that displays little CD icons for all of the album artwork. It's too much.
