Which version of Windows Media Player are you using? ie. media player 9, 10 or 11? Which version of Windows are you using ie XP, XP Pro, Vista Basic, etc?****Is the song appearing on the panel on the right of media player, where playlists are seen?If so, at the top of the panel, does it say now playing or burn list? Is it the only song on the list?****Is the song appearing on the middle of the Media Player screen?If so, which menu item is highlighted at the top? ie Now Playing, Library, Rip, Burn etcIs it the only song listed?****Can you right click on the file? Do you see options such as File Location or Properties?Either of these should give you a clue as to where the file may actually be hiding.Alternatively, if you right click on the file and select 'delete', you will see a prompt asking you if you want to delete from only library, or from library AND my computer. Try the my computer option first, which i am guessing will give you a result of 'the file doesnt exist' or something like that, then try simply deleting it from the library.SAFE MODE:Safe mode is Windows loading just the very basics required to run, with no background processes. Many processes load with Windows by default, and if you are trying to delete something and it wont delete, chances are that whatever you want to delete is already in use by something.As Windows will not delete anything that is in use, Safe Mode is used to try and access things before they are loaded into whatever program is using them, by getting to them before the program has loaded at all.To boot into safe mode, in most computers, try this.*Ensure there is no CD, DVD or floppy disc in any of the drives.** Restart the computer***Immediately the computer starts again, before it has loaded anything, click the F8 key at least once per second, continuing until you see a screen come up with options such as 'Start Normally' 'Use last know good configuration' 'Safe mode' 'Safe mode with networking' etc**** Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, select 'Safe Mode' and hit enter. Windows will now boot into Safe Mode. Once you are loaded in safe mode, try to delete the file.
