    I have some japanese songs in my collection. Some of it are in Japanese characters and they display as boxes.

    On Windows7, they display correctly without installing/setting anything.

    I tried adding a Japanese language pack which does nothing. There's no download for the pack. It says it's not available.

    thanks!

    What are the filenames? Which edition of Windows 8?

    From my limited tests.. everything works properly.

    What version of 8 are you running? I don't have much experience with the language packs, but I'm pretty sure my Japanese songs are properly listed in RP.
