can't drag mp3 files in my playlist window

I have this intermittent problem; sometimes, I can drag files or folders and drop them directly in my playlist window and Winamp will take them just fine; other times, like today, I just can't and need to use the "Add files" or "Add folders" buttons to add them to the playlist window. What can I do to make sure I can always drag and drop...

Are you always dragging the files from Windows Explorer? Or do you try to drag files from within other applications too?

Please post a complete list of your installed plugins

Listing of installed input plugins (in_*) and the relevent apis which they indicate that they
support to allow you to see how well the plugin is likely to work with different Winamp builds.

Note: This is a best guess at how well the plugins shown should work with Winamp and until
you actually use the plugins with Winamp in normal use you will not otherwise know.


A * means the plugin has support for metadata queries on a file (2.9+)
A # means the plugin supports saving modified metadata via Winamp apis (2.9+)
A % means the plugin supports the unified file info dialog and a '%+' shows it adds its own pages (5.5+)
A || means the plugin supports the api_decoder used for transcoding/replaygain/etc (5.34+)

A || means the plugin supports the api_decoder used for transcoding/replaygain/etc (5.34+)
and '(Seekable)' indicates extra support in processing of audio data via api_decoder

A {} around a symbol means the plugin supports the unicode version of the api

Summary:

'One for Nunz' found 19 installed input plugins in 'C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins'
89% (17) of the plugins installed provide the needed 5.x api ("winampGetExtendedFileInfo(..)
or winampGetExtendedFileInfoW(..)") to allow the formats provided by the plugins to work with
most of Winamp 5.x's features (more important with higher versions).

No need to bump the thread. If someone has an answer you get a reply.

Does it happen with all kind of files? Or is it only for audio files, or for specific audio or video formats only?

Have you tried to temporary disable the 3rd party plugins:

iTunes Plugin v1.0ß [in_tunes.dll]
Monkey's Audio Player v4.01 [in_APE.dll]
DTS Audio Winamp Plugin v0.0.0.1 [in_dts.dll]

which may could produce the issue? You can do it simply, if you rename them to .dll.off or move them in Windows Explorer from Winamp/Plugins to another folder.

Also note, that the DropBox plugin is an early alpha version, which isn't supported anymore. You should uninstall it.

If that still brings no success, the only thing I could suggest is a clean install

Are you maybe sometimes running Winamp in admin mode?
Drag+drop doesn't work for any programs when run in admin mode.
