the file is wrong in the sense that it is likely not what I am specifying. what format are you using? (I tested with mp3 and wav) it must have NO tags at all, of any kind. wav is that way naturally. a mp3 would suffice as well, if you go into alt+3 and uncheck v1 and v2 and anything else. I have not tested what happens if v1 or v2 is present but entirely blank.

do u mean to say the name of the file is put into the title column in winamp? (that's proper) or is also in the files tag? (improper)

But as I said, that's an interesting glitch (bug). Hopefully something will be done about it.
its worth fixing if only for wav. but it makes no sense that you can not reproduce it, unless your scenario is fundamentally different somehow, and it would be good to know what that difference is, just in case its something unexpected.

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