USB - files not showing metadata

I upgraded today from winamp pro to 5.8

For some reason my USB (under portables) shows blank entries for songs without metadata. It only shows the length. If I click the song it will show the title in the playlist editor. And if I close winamp and reopen it, all the song titles will then show in the playlist editor.

However no matter what settings I seem to change, when I select the usb in the media library, the entries are still blank

I tried the following to no avail:
In Preferences
Under Titles > Advanced Title Fomratting put %filename%
Under Local Media > Watch Folders > Click on Configure under Metadata Reading Settings and choose No Guessing.

there is about 300 songs like this, so entering in the meta data manually would be a daunting task.

First, be aware of this:


Second, use mp3tag to automate proper tagging of your files from internet sources.

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