Hey Bud

I wonder if those particular files have all been corrupted somehow? Try playing files that you absolutely know are good and see what happens. You can tell if a file has been corrupted if it has a 0 byte count. This means that the file is actually on your drive, but for whatever strange reason, nothing is in it. You can tell how big a file is by going to the file in question, hit your context menu key, 2 keys to the left of the left arrow key and from the menu, choose properties. If the file is 1 or 2 mb and it looks normal, then the file is fine. but if it says 0 bytes or if it's really really small, then either the file is corrupted or something else is wrong.
Hope this gets you in the right direction.

Hi Marty,

I tried that and still nothing. It does play the music in the winamp library however. I have reinstalled but will try it again and see what happens.


Thanks for the interest.

Bud

Hi, Bud, if the winamp window is showing with your title bar, then, could it be that winamp's volume is down? If this is so, try starting a file, then pressing the up arrow, and holding it in, and see if you start hearing music, if not, maybe a reinstallation of winamp might be in order.
