windows media player irritation

  Sethhaniel 10:22 07 Jul 06

play my music in skin mode
but as soon as I plug in USB memorystick etc it goes to Full mode and wants to synchronise -
have set all controls in prog for it not to do that but to no avail - is there a reg tweak to stop it???

All iwant is to have background music while I work without it acting like an annoying popup all the time :0

Plug the Memory stick in before you open media player?,dont know if it would work but may be worth a try.Another thing is have you tried having media player on the task bar player it should still play,dont know if it show skins in this mode though.

'skin mode' but in classic style -
USB sticks in continual use swapping from one to other throughout my sessions - think even in tray mode it would pop up to try and synchronise etc,.

to keep it in skin mode i think you have to apply a skin rather than keeping it in classic style....

and let you know ;)

no luck -whichever skin is on - as soon as I plug in a memory stick the player opens in full screen wanting to synchronise

have reverted back to openning the files in mplayer2 they all play the same -but no irritating extras ;)
