No more rebuilding my Media Center library

13 May
One minor bug with Windows Media Center on Windows 7 for me was the too-frequent loss of the media library index.

Often, when starting Media Center you’d go and try to pick a music track but be greeted by no tracks, or more scarily, you could watch as Media Center cheerfully removed all of your song from the index.

The way back was to remove and then re-add the directories holding the media back in, and then wait for the library to rebuild…

This has now been fixed and is available as a hot fix from Microsoft. Attached to Knowledgebase article number 981770, you can request the hot fix from
