Winamp CD Ripping problem (garbage data)

Hello. First of all i would like to mention that i am a Winamp Pro owner for quite some time. I have been using Winamp for years and never has any problem. Untill recently that i decided to rip my entire cd collection (i am talking about original CDs just in case you are wondering). The point is i faced some serious problems. In some of my CDs Winamp put some garbage in the beggining or in the end of specific songs. One example is the album Meteora by Linkin Park and specifically the 3rd track (Somewhere i belong) where winamp put a few random seconds from other tracks in the beggining of the song. The problem does not appear when i play the song from the cd (just in case you were wondering if there is a problem with the disc). I ripped the disc many times and the same problem always appeared on the same track. I am pretty disappointed since CD Ripping is the main reason i bought Winamp in the first place. Does anyone have any idea?

P.S.: I am using the latest version of winamp (5.622)
P.S.2: Thanks in advance to anyone who has a solution to my problem.

also, you've not by chance updated lame_enc.dll to 3.99.1 since that is known to not write LAME header tags (which stores the gapless information in) which Winamp cannot read.

After you mentioned lame_enc i decided to try the latest version (3.99.3) and it fixed the problem. Thanks for your answers :-) I hadn't updated before, i was using the one coming with winamp.
