Windows Media Player can not only be used to set up libraries of videos, pictures and audio files.  It is possible to have visual displays when the audio is playing  and links to the internet for more information about an album etc. Files can be tagged for easy searching and alternative file types.  They can be viewed as icons or in a list and transferred or burnt to a CD. It is possible to transfer data to mobile phones and flash players as MP3 files or WMA and Wav. Both the WAV and MP3 files work well with the free download Audacity if you need to edit dialogue, lecture recordings, interviews etc.

The Windows Media Player FAQ has useful hints and tips from burning CDs to synchronising devices.
