Chinese music file names shows rectangles instead of Chinese characters?(5 posts)
Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm using Windows 8. And it was on Windows Explorer and, if I recall correctly, on MediaMonkey and other players as well. The interesting thing that I just found out is that I would be able to see the characters only sometimes. I just checked and I could see them all and couldn't before, and I don't know what causing that. This problem exists after I reformatted my computer as well. I really would want to find out what's causing this because having it work once in a while is almost close to having it never work in my case.
I use Win 7 -- but I also use Mediamonkey. My Mediamonkey reads traditional Chinese just fine -- without ever needing to be tinkered with. Same goes for my Windows Explorer, Office Word, etc. I suspect once the proper language fonts are set up within Windows, the other apps would utilize without further ado. My recollection is that I had to manually configure in Win XP and earlier versions -- but not any more with Win 7.
I am guessing that Windows 7 and 8 now detect and adjust automatically when they encounter language codes different from English. Your reformatting probably caused Windows to have to readjust -- and thus a bunch of square the first time around. If I am correct, then you shouldn't have this problem anymore going forward. Are you still seeing squares even now?
