  • Playlist Editor displays artist name twice

    Whenever I load my Media Library straight from the folder instead of using the iTunes database, it'll say [artist name - artist name - song title], and I have no idea why it does that or how to fix it. Here's a picture.

    I know this question's probably already been answered a million times, but I couldn't find it anywhere, so I figured I'd ask.

    Please copy+paste your ATF string here (from: Winamp -> Prefs -> Titles -> Advanced Title Formatting)

    Playlist | Twitter | Albums

      [%artist% - ]$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%))

        Did that help any?

          Alright, so I changed the ATF string to this:


          Now some of the tracks are displaying the artist name once, which is what I wanted, but others aren't displaying it at all, they're only doing the song title.

          Is that a problem with the ID3 or something?

            So, I just figured something out. I've been using my laptop (which runs XP) for the past couple of weeks because my room was being remodeled and my desktop (which runs 7) was out of commission. I just booted up Winamp on my desktop, and the titles are working perfectly on the files I have here. Granted, I have more music on my laptop, so those might not work, but at the moment it seems that XP does something to the titles that 7 doesn't. I'll be getting (or borrowing) an external eventually, so once I get the new files transferred over, I'll let you know if they're working correctly or not. Thanks for all the help.

              Turns out I was wrong. Windows 7 has the same exact problems as XP. This is really starting to get annoying. Any suggestions?
