Save ratings to MP3 ID tag?

This past year I have been losing my ratings very often. Something happened where I could not keep my old ratings from my old computer and build off from there. I could only have my old ratings or my new ratings. not both... so I have lost my ratings basically. Anyway. My question is:

Is there a way that I can save my ratings from winamp onto the file itself/ID tag (ex: In windows media player it would show also)? I don't like constantly losing my ratings when I move the files... any help?

also, about half my ratings mysteriously disappear from time to time... >.<

-note- I have looked this question up in the forums and the ones that I looked up said something like "yeah the files you need are in the attachment"... but there's no attachment... like in these: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....ghlight=rating and http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....ng#post2607898 ... that's why I reposted the question :/

-note2-I just read there was a forum upgrade and many attachments were lost... makes sense :/

there will be a native means for writing the tags in the next client release and using the files released after 5.572 (and sort of lost by the forum upgrade) aren't really recommended and you'll have to wait for the next client release (no eta on that).

also http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=317153 may be off use if you're experiencing data loss issues (though that then leads to fact that the player shouldn't be unstable as it's not for most users).
