Window Media Player Question

I just downloaded an album. It’s in the same folder as all my other stuff, but it’s not showing up in Windows Media Player like everything else. Why not?

It might not’ve had time to be scanned yet.

Go to File -> Add to Library (or just push F3), click OK and you can force a scan to update the library.

Edit: Or just drag the entire folder into WMP to add it manually.

Ah, so it only scans periodically, and not when you start the player. Thank you. Can I change the frequency of this?
