how to change directories and re-scan?

re-installing the new version solved the problem, however...


my mp3 files are organized in the following way:


where "album" is the title of a CD of the respektive artist.
winamp is able to read that structure; alas, its ripping is
organizing in a flat structure like

C:\mp3library\"artist" - "album"

How can I change the directory structure and names, and re-scan the library, please?

Thnaks in advance!

re-installing the new version solved the problem, however...

Go to: Winamp > Prefs (Ctrl+P) > Media Library > CD Ripping > Output File Settings tab
and change the Naming Convention to: <Artist>\<Album>\## - <Title>

fixing senseless default settings as discussed here:


would really be a worthy thing to do.

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