Windows Media Player 11 device properties


Is there a way to fill in the device information for an unknown device in WMP11?
I know the device information based on the Mac address.
WMP11 > Tools > Options > Library > Configure Sharing > Select device > Properties

I found the properties for the WMP devices in the system registry at this location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Media Player NSS\3.0\Devices\00-21-9B-09-1A-72
There will be an entry identified by the MAC address for each device (ex. 00-21-9B-09-1A-72).
I corrected the entries that were missing or in error with regedit. The WMP > tools > options > library > Configure Sharing > device(select) > properties,
now show correct information.
