I have this error: Error# 80040E09

when making a playlist, any ideas?

It is important music that needs copying as it is needed so quick.

Anyoen can you help me without a reinstall.

I have tried the usual but no answer.

Microsoft dont know aswell.

80040E09 is a common error with the Jet database engine - Google will return plenty of hits for that error number, although none that I saw associated with WMP.

Have you been tinkering with Office or Access?

No, it only shows up in WMP 8.

How do I reinstall it?

Also I have a problem with system restore, operation failed?

When I make a new playlist this error pops up.

I dont want WMP 9 I want 8, so how can I get it to work again and sys restore?

"No, it only shows up in WMP 8." - Yes, but if WMP is trying to use a shared component of Office (the Jet Database), and you have been tinkering with Office, or Access, it could have had a knock-on effect on WMP

"How do I reinstall it?" Reinstall what?

"I dont want WMP 9 I want 8, so how can I get it to work again.." Huh? Who mentioned specific versions of WMP?

System restore - do you get a specific error message, or just operation failed?

Which is the most urgent of your urgent problems - system restore or your playlist?

Eventually but it took a lot of searching, the file was set to read only for some reason.


System restore I will start another thread on if I cannot find it on Support.microsoft. com
