Maybe if you type in something, we could prompt the user if they want the folder to be created if it doesn't exist,
or give an error message if the folder can't be created due to having invalid characters, as in No Bic's example.
did that ever happen Egg?

is that b/c windows then allowed winamp to just go ahead and create those folders?

I found out that it was Windows permissions,
to solve it i had to grant my user ownership and permission to the drive that i was ripping to.
And now it works fine, it also fixed a few other issues i was having.
ah yes, very annoying. there are threads here in the forums about taking ownership, and then setting the permissions. real PITA stuff. i find this useful for taking ownership:

just add that to your registry by double clicking it and its in the context menu.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
