Is there a way to fill in the device information for an unknown device in WMP11?
I know the device information based on the Mac address.
WMP11 > Tools > Options > Library > Configure Sharing > Select device > Properties
Open Control Panel, Device Manager, Other Devices. Is there anything listed there? If there is, the option to uninstall or disable is present. I see one such device in Other Devices but it doesn't appear in the WMP list that you show. The only thing it shows is a USB port 5. I have 8 and don't know what's on that port. It also doesn't show up on my network devices. Whatever you have, it seems to be in your Network Devices.
Thanks wither 3.
I don't have "Other Devices" under control panel device manager.
One unknown device is a ASUS laptop on the local network - mac 60 36 dd 16 27 f9
The other is my Desktop - mac 00 21 9b 09 1a 72 it is also on the local network.
I would like to add some identifying information in properties.
I found the properties for the WMP devices in the system registry at this location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Media Player NSS\3.0\Devices\00-21-9B-09-1A-72
There will be an entry identified by the MAC address for each device (ex. 00-21-9B-09-1A-72).
I corrected the entries that were missing or in error. The WMP > tools > options > library > Configure Sharing > device(select) > properties,
now show correct information.
