2.91 Media Library : Crash on update ID3 TAG


When trying to update ID3 tag for lots of file at once it crash sometimes.
First way :
- Select several files
- Chose 'Edit item(s) information'
- Change some information like Artist or/and Album
- Press OK
==> Crash sometimes (if it crash, I do it again, on the same files, updating the same informations and it can work... or crash again).

Second way :
- Select several files
- Chose 'File info...'
- Change information for several files and do 'Update'
- Sometimes it crash on on random file when writing tag.

After crash library information is wrong and there is no way to ask Media Library to rebuild all database (read again all ID3 tag info for all files). So the only way I found to rebuild the base is to completly destroy it and add the files again.

If I try to update again tag for a file after crash the file is displayed 2 times in the library, on time with the tag before the crash and one other with the new tag.

Another problem, the 'Delete from library' sometimes do nothing (after crash, so the library can be broken).

Whishlist : remember the last directory used for 'Add folder to library' (or at least start with an closed tree because open the winamp install directory is not usefull I think). And, if possible accept Drag and Drop of folder.

System :
Windows XP-SP1 DirectX9 on VIA KT333/AMD
Winamp 2.91
