Cannot add songs to local media library

Hello,

I brought a new notebook few days back. It has Windows 8(64 bit). When I try adding songs to the media library, I get a dialogue box saying that winamp has stopped responding. It scans the music folders, shows me the progress that 22% files have been scanned and then just stops.

What is the problem here? Is my OS the culprit? somebody plz help!

PS: I love using winamp and don't want to revert back to itunes....((

what ver winamp? we need your info tool results, read the stickies.

and how many songs? where are they stored? what file types?

you might have a bad file or shortcut or playlist or something messing up the scan.

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

I'm using version 5.64 and most of the files are in mp3 format. Well I've been using winamp on my netbook and had no such problem before. So the file types are totally fine and compatible.

I hav 2100 songs on my external HDD.

Mr Sinatra I was thinking, windows application called folder colorizer maybe the culprit. Well I used it to change the colour of some of my music folders. Maybe that is interfering with the scanning process. What do u think?

maybe, only way to know is to kill it.

you could also sub divide your files into groups and see if u can scan them all in by group. i'd also scan them with mp3val.

5.65 is the current ver and the info tool would help.
