You have managed to identify the "problem" files, even without finding out why they are problematic.

I have 2 suggestions:
1. Experiment by scanning your entire library, after removing the "problem" files, to see if the number of files causes problems.
2. Analyse the file names and metadata of the "problem" files to see if there is something common that may cause a problem.

what xFaultx has done is the only way to get it working by filtering out things. and due to how and where things crash, it's not possible to catch it to prevent Winamp from crashing (as was covered in the other long thread about this same issue).

As indicated by DrO; I dont really think its an issue specifically with the ID tags. I have 2 songs, from the same album, same artist, same coding, same everthing. When scanning them with MP3 diag, they have the same issues. But one file works fine, the other doesnt. Even ones that come up with no issues in the scan, some still have problems. Its something obviously on gracenotes end. In the end, those files werent ones I care to much about, so I am okay with it.
