Winamp not separating tracks on CD singles correctly

Hi -
I've found that when playing CD singles Winamp sometimes treats the last two (or more) tracks as a single track.

e.g. a CD has three tracks - 4m46s, 2m52s, 5m52s.
The media library window displays this correctly, but when playing back I get a 4m46s track followed by an 8m44s track then a 0m00s track.

[sorry I sould have mentioned that the reason this is more than a minor annoyance is that I'm ripping all my CDs to my PC and tracks are disappearing....!]

Doesn't seem to happen with album CDs....

Can anyone help please? Is it a bug or just me?

Thanks in advance,
jonnee

What happens if you use the menu play method?...
In Winamp click on the main menu icon or right click on a "empty" space > select 'Play' > select 'Audio CD x:' where "x" is the drive of choice
Depending on the skin, the main menu icon is in the left of the title bar in the main player.

Thanks for the reply - to answer your question:
just the same - Media Library displays 3 tracks and correct lenghts, first track plays as normal, skip to track 2 and it's now actually track 2 + track 3 and showing the combined track length (i.e. over 8 minutes an Ash don't write songs that long... ) next to the title. Skip to track 3 and nothing happens because it's showing as length '0:00'

Hmmm. Please provide system & Winamnp specs. The singles CDs you are having a issue with, are those "regular" audio CDs or enhanced CDs?

I'm glad you're having a problem. I left Musicmatch because they discontinued the use of a database and it doesn't recognize ANY oif my storebought CD's.I've used them for 10 years or so. So i bought WinAMP, I've got problems, and now I'm spending hours searching through threads. What a waste of time.
O.K. The rantings over.
My CD's after ripped have the last two tracks F'd up. The next to the last track is not complete. It finishes on the beginning of the last track. the last track continues on to the end. I've rebooted, installed(5.32Pro), all that stuff. All my cd ripping is doing it.
In prefs, I'm using MP3 Encoder v1.32 with a min/max 128/160. It just doesn't seem to recognize the space between the next-to-the-last track and last track.

Try unchecking "Read audio data from CDs using bundled Sonic engine" in:
Winamp > Prefs > CD Ripping > Ripping tab

Depending on what your CD/DVD-RW drive is, you might also need to reduce 'max speed' setting from 'Unlimited' to 16x or 8x

Depending on what your Windows Os is, you might also need to use/install aspi

(for a more accurate reply you should include this info when posting)


By the way, min/max 128/160 is virtually pointless.
Use the --alt-presets from the Quality drop-down, and don't change anything else.
See this CD Ripping Tutorial for more info.
