    Does the file(s) itself (.mp3, .flac, etc.) have names?

    And/or have you also checked the "tag editor" (Shortcut: ALT + 3) if they can in case be typed wrong?

    sounds like an issue described in depth in another thread:

    What is Winamp? Why is Winamp? How is Winamp? All these burning questions and issues discussed within.

    And yes, that's what I meant, I haven't changed the names of the MP3 files.
    what would be great, is if you would PRESERVE a set of files, both the audio and the playlists, and put them in a zip before you attempt any fixes, so the winamp team can attempt to figure out and reproduce what is going on here. also please describe what locale and languages you use, skins, etc.

    Winamp Question mark on songs and cannot play them

    Some songs, mostly the ones with japanese characters appear with question marks when you restart winamp, the playlist has more than 1000 files

    Even trying to save the playlist as m3u8 doesn't fix it

    Some songs don't even play even if they seem fine.
