Windows Media Player - Cannot change rip location


Cannot change Music Rip location in Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7 
Tools > Options > Rip Music > Rip music to this location

The location is blank and Change button in not active - clicking on the button doesn't produce any result.

Windows Media Player Options > Rip Music



The issue was caused by previously selecting the Rip location as a removable drive (in fact it was an MP3 player). Since the MP3 player was not connected, Media Player was getting confused on where to store music and would not allow to change the location.

The issue was resolved by temporary mapping a network drive with a letter corresponding to the removable drive in question.
