Windows 10: Windows Media Player - All library folders on D: now unresponsive

    Windows Media Player - All library folders on D: now unresponsive

    Hello All, first post, so please be gentle.

    I have performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro onto a new HDD I put into my desktop PC, with all my media still on a separate 1TB HDD D: drive.

    I've subsequently organised the shared folders on my D: drive into the appropriate media library's in Windows Media Player, however, when I view the media library on my PlayStation 3, the D: drive folders aren't displayed.

    Now when I view the various library's in Windows Media Player, all the D: folders are shown as "unresponsive". I've tried removing and re-adding the folders and re-building the library, but that didn't help. If I add a folder on the C: drive, no problem, but any folder I add from the D: drive shows as unresponsive.

    I did some Google searching, and made sure they were being indexed, which they weren't, however, when clicking "modify" and "show all locations", D: doesn't show up as an available drive to index.

    I've thought about un-mounting and then re-mounting D: drive, but have no idea whether that would help or not, so it's over to you guys for help.

    Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

    Hi All, for those interested...

    I ended up moving all my media from D: across to C: which took around 4 hours to complete, then re-formatted D:, before copying it all back across to D: again.

    Once this completed, I set up the Windows Media Player libraries again, and now my PS3 can once again see and stream the folder contents.

    I'm sure this wasn't the only/correct fix for this, but worked in my case.
