Ive been having this issue with my media player, and its really annoying! I have about 30GB of music on their, and it played fine for years. I upgraded up to Windows Media Player 11, but did not like the setup, and rolled back over to 10! Since that, everytime I play a video or play music, it gets really slow to start up, and when it does, it gets real choppy! Even in the Window Task Manager, it shows my media player running at 130,000k, and my CPU usage jumps up to about 80%. Why is this happening? I tried going back up to 11, and no luck! Is their any hope for me?
