Media Library doesn't "represent"

I'm including a couple of screen shots for your viewing pleasure. I have several examples, but I'll use the most obvious: Nine Inch Nails album "Broken".
The problem: When allowing Winamp to automatically check your disk for files and build the library it represents the media incorrectly with bogus data. Removing the library files doesn't help at all and this occurs with many albums the library, apparently, doesn't recognize. I'm including two images: 1 is the image via Winamp of the tracks. 2. is the image of my hard drive folder with the actual album. You'll be able to see an obvious difference. Could someone out there please help? This is annoying as...well it's really annoying.

Thank you!





Note that in the second image the files represent what is actually on the CD. The first image shows how Winamp has hacked it up and presented files that don't even exist. What is up with that?

What does the actual id3 tags (via: right-click item in Winamp -> View File Info) say for those "[Silence]" tracks?

i see several issues here. i think if you use mp3tag, you might find some answers.

first off, the first screenshot in winamp shows real song titles with 0seconds length, starting with track 23. that info must be in the files tag, but it also must be wrong.

secondly, why rip silent tracks at all? do you actually listen to them?

thirdly, i would enable the column "filepath" in winamp so you can see what specific file on disk is generating what report/info in the winamp ML.

i'm not sure what your final goal is tho. it looks to me like some bad rips or autotagging.

try "mp3val"

it fixes bad mp3/lame headers and should fix some of the issues above.

also, doesn't broken come with silent tracks? as a way to hide a track at the end? (so like tracks 23 to 98 are 4secs silence each, then 99 is a track?)
