By the way, I already sent the plugin.txt file along with this letter to WinAmp:
"Before I say a thing, let me say: "THANK YOU WinAmp for your FANTASTIC SOFTWARE!"
I've Never Liked the Windows Media Player so after using WinAmp I decided to send you folks our money for your hard work and upgraded to 5.541 Pro. Now the Shuffle doesn't work at all!
I had been using WinAmp 3x and it worked fine for what I wanted it to do. (We're almost 60 and don't require much any longer
-I'd select a music folder on my machine.
-WinAmp would play the files in a Random Order (shuffle)
I went to the forum section and it looks like it's only other people trying to help instead of Tech Support. But I did do as suggested and Deleted WinAmp through Control Panel, Deleted the WinAmp folder under program files, rebooted, and then completely reinstalled WinAmp. No add-ons etc.
I have a music folder with about 300 songs (same folder I used in WinAmp 3x)
The Shuffle no longer works.......period.
If I close WinAmp and then open it again, It Always Plays the LAST song in the folder and then continues down the list in order (no random or shuffle)
Oh, and another strange thing when you 1st open WinAmp........A small Album Art picture window opens up on top of the main Play Window for a few seconds and then it goes away! (by the way, the album art picture is Always the same and never has anything to do with the song that is playing)
I don't even want to see any album art.
Like I said earlier I'm old..........Need no bells and whistles.
Just let me pick my music folder and let WinAmp play the mp3 files in a random order....period.
I've attached my_plugin_list.txt as advised (that was before the clean reinstall so I don't know if that helps).
-I'm running Windows XP Home 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3.0
-Video NVIDIA GeForce Fx 5200
-Sound Creative SB Live! Series (WDM)
-Ram 2.50 GB
This is the Same Hardware Configuration that I had before I upgraded to 5xPro.
If there is something else that I need to do in order to get this problem resolved PLEASE just let me know and I'll do whatever I can to help.
I noticed a message on the forum that says: If you make the slightest mistake when reporting "You Will Be Ignored!"
I don't want to be Ignored.
Like I mentioned twice already: I'm old and may have made a slight mistake reporting my problem because I'm not computer savoy like the young people. But someone needs to let me know if I made a mistake so that I can correct it because I would really like this problem fixed.
I also just downloaded WinAmp 3.0 while I was typing this letter and (although the graphics, scaling, etc. are raw and not much liked...) the program works fine. I told it what folder to go to and it plays my mp3 files in a Random (shuffle) Order.
The 2 people and I that are having the problem on the forum Can't Possibly Be The Only People Having This Problem. Is it that No One actually uses the Shuffle Option anymore?
My wife and I LOVE that feature. It reminds us of the old Juke Boxes of our past. (Except with your WONDERFUL SOFTWARE, we get to decide Every Song that will in the Juke Box and randomly be played
Anyway, Thank You Very Much for your time. God knows Ya'll must be Very Busy.
Please try to get the Shuffle Problem fixed soon. We (more than you could possibly know) really LOVE this feature.
And the response was: "Are you sure you have the Shuttle turned on"
I don't know what else I could possibly send?
