winamp is formatting my files when I add them

Please help. I notest that winamps uses my title formatting and format the title tag when I add them??

I have made the playlist view so that it shows artist - title /album if ther is any thing in resp. tag. If one tag is emty, It just leaves it emty

[$if(%artist%,%artist%,) - $if(%title%,%title%,)] $if(%album%,' / Album: '%album%,)

But when I add file and the file has an emty title tag it formating it like this:
Artist: Madonna
Title: Madonna - /Album: Best of

What do I need to do if I don't want winamp to autoformatting my files..so the emty tags stays emty?

Turn off metadata guessing:
Prefs (Ctrl+P) > Media Library > Local Media > Watch Folders tab > click 'Configure' button > select 'No guessing'

If your files are in the Media Library database, you will have to let the library re-read the metadata to apply the change.
Select all files in the ML, right-click > Read metadata on selected items


Note that your ATF string is kinda inefficient.

This one will get you the same result:
[%artist% - %title%][ / Album: %album%]

Though I'd recommend using something like this instead:
[%artist% - ]$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%))[ / Album: %album%]

If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.
