Damn Media Player

For the first time in a few years I wanted to burn a music CD from some files on my drive. I had to use Media Player because the other programs I used throughout the years do not run on Win7 64 bit. In all my many years of computing I never used MP for CD burning. Or anything really. I always used other programs.

But it seemed easy enough. I opened up MP and there is a window saying to drag the files to burn into there. So I highlighted the music files located in a folder I had made for just these songs. I dragged them into MP. I noticed that the song order was scrambled from original. So in MP's burn list I deleted the songs and was going to drag them one at a time from the source folder. Thats when I found out that when I deleted the songs from MP's burn list it also deleted the source files in my folder. WTF. :angry:

There is a option for delete the file from list AND your computer and enabled by default but it's for Media Library(named "Delete from Library and My Computer" in WMP's option interface), I'm not sure WMP's burning interface or the option window can do this too...at least I can't, it only remove the item from burning list, but not delete actual files...

And if you do try to delete something in Media Library mode, WMP should shows a confirmation window to ask you delete the item only or delete the item and delete from your computer, unless you did made that window never shows up again and the option for "Delete from Library and My Computer" still enable...yes, WMP may delete your actual files if you choose delete items.

Sometimes, I act like a stupid asshole. I know, and I'm sorry about that. :(

I'm using default settings. This was my first time running MP since I installed Win7 late last year. I saw no confirmation box. I'll have to look for a box to check or uncheck in the settings.

EDIT: OOPS. It may have been partly my fault. There are actually 2 windows where you can drag your files. Make a playlist or burn. I should have dragged my files to the smaller burn window, not the large playlist window. But still, in Playlist having your files delete as a default is wrong.
