Fails to add files to new Library

Hi,

This is my first post here, so please bear with me.

I recently cleared my media library so I could scan and start a fresh one, with added and deleted folders of music. I then proceeded to scan my My Music folder to recompile the library, but when it reached 94%, it hung for ages then I got an error message saying winamp had to close down. I eventually had to press ctrl-alt-del to get it to shut down, and my commit charge increased from 500MB to 3GB while I waited for it to eventually shut down.

I reinstalled, same thing. I did a clean install, same thing. I searched and read previous posts, and thought it might be a corrupt file, or a file type it didn't like, so I removed all my non-mp3 files to a backup folder (ape, flac, and mpc), and tried again. It still stopped at the 94% point.

How can I get it to scan the folder without crashing? btw, I deleted some music, but I didn't add any new files, before this problem arose.

Here is the error message, and my pc spec:

AppName: winamp.exe AppVer: 5.5.7.2830 ModName: in_avi.dll
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 000065c9



Asus P5K Premium Wifi
Q9550 @ 2.83 and 2GB Corsair Dominator PC8500 CL5
XFi Fatal1ty Extreme Gamer Pro
GeForce 8800 GTS 512
WinXP sp3
DirectX 9.0c
Winamp 5.572 (Standard)


I also saved the tech data from the error message (98f8_appcompat.txt) which I've attached, along with my list of plugins.

I hope this helps.

Are there any AVI video files in your My Music folder?
As it's crashing in in_avi.dll, this suggests that there must be.

You can watch the scan progress via:
Winamp -> Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Media Library -> Local Media -> Watch Folders tab.

See which file it freezes/crashes on, and remove it.

Also try removing AVI from the extension list in:
Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> in_dshow -> config

I've fixed my problem, after hours of messing around...

I noticed after I posted my problem, that the error message mention an in_avi.dll file and I just found an avi in my music folder!! I removed it and it completes the scan.

Oh, I just saw your reply. If I hadn't just stumbled upon it myself, it was the perfect advice. I didn't know you could watch the scan from within the watch folders tab though. Thank you for your quick reply. Just wondering though... shouldn't winamp be able to deal with avis anyway?

Yes. It should...

What's the filesize of this AVI?
Too large to send as a sample file (via email or upload, etc)?

What happens if you try to drag said AVI file into the Playlist window?
Does it add ok, or does Winamp freeze/crash?
If the former, then what does Winamp say the audio & video codecs are for it via 'View File Info' (Alt+3) -> Tracks tab (Codec Name & ID)?

the AVI is 235MB - a bit too big for emailing. I just tried dropping the file into the playlist and it froze winamp, resulting in the same shutdown error.

Can you provide a MediaInfo log for the AVI?
Maybe also attach your dxdiag log
