not necessary, i'll explain...

I simply wanted to prove that the problem can be reproduced at will.
we're obsessed nerds, we enjoy this kind of thing actually, when we're not attacking one another. u can def feel free to step away, u've more than done your duty. (i'm a vet too btw)

DrO is a dev, and he has now contacted gracenote, exactly as i did, only more officially.

this is why it doesn't matter what ripped or made the files. it likely isn't encoder related since this is the case.

i think something about the results crashes the DLL. perhaps the DLL isn't unicode, and it gets back chars it can't handle?

what will be fascinating to find out, is what was the common characteristic to all these files that caused the crash? its amazing you found 39 examples when i've never seen this once. and its also interesting that they all seem to be in the easy listening type genre, which i also have a good amount of.

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