    Window Media Player Can't Get Album Info


    Dunno when this happened, was ok after the initial W7 -> W10 change, but when i try and rip an album now i just get a Not Found page about redir.metaservices.
    googled a bit, most answers are years old, others report no effect, and what i've tried [checking privacy settings etc] don't work. any help would be appreciated.

    TIA

    I had that problem, I turned out to be a firewall issue. If you turn your firewall of temporarily i think you'll find it now works.

    yeah, i'm not turning off my protection. never needed it before, if there's no other fix i'll just get something other than WMP.
    turning off protection to get something to work should NEVER be a solution.

    I never said to turn it off permanently, just for test purposes.

    Are you going to share what the cure was for other potential sufferers?
