Your errors seem to point to a media library read error. It might be possible that your WMP library is corrupt or may contain a single corrupt item. This is not a rare occurrence, but usually WMP will try to fix itself. The widget is designed to sort your music albums and display them on the custom playlist. Here is where the widget seems to fail.
I can't say that this is definitely what's causing it since i can't reproduce the error on several computers, but you can try restoring the media library and it might fix it.
Please note that this will reset all your Windows Media Player album entries and playlists. Your songs and videos are not erased, but you will need to add them to the library again.
You can find instructions in this Microsoft KB article, but i've broken it down to make things a little easier:
This works only for WindowsXP & Windows Media Player 11
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player
replace [user name] with your specific user name.
If this does not fix your problem, you can restore your library by closing all Media Player dependent programs and going back to the folder. Delete the new library files and move back the files you backed up. Re-start Windows Media Player.
Let me know if this works for you guys.
