I just really want to find out what went wrong. OK ... I had just downloaded winamp 3 with great anticipation.... but ...
after in installed winamp3 certain mp3's would not play. I already uninstalled 2.8 so i re-installed 2.8.To my suprise 2.8 wouldnt allow to me to drag or enqueue these certain files either. Before I installed 3 everything worked fine. After a while i figured out that the files that I could not play were files under folders which had Chinese characters as the name. I deleted the chinese part of the name then it worked .
What I really want to know is 'What Happened?'

ps. nero had the same problem AFTER I installed Winamp 3 .. Realone and windows media player wasnt affected though...... help please????/

pss. is there any scandisk program ( or Checkdisk ) in XP? .. cant seem to find it ... want to find out if there are any errors... ran a virus check ... nothing though.

and where can I get a program to check or manage the speed of my system ..... im running a p4 2.0 with 512 mgs ram .... but windows runs very slowy.... and it just started to crash and hang on me for no reason.... :(

Okay, make sure that WinAmp3 is fully uninstalled, delete all files from the WinAmp directory, restart your PC, just in case - there's something in that Wasabi file... Re-Install it and the i would Un-install it immediately, again, making sure that everything is erased. By re-instaling it, you're repairing any WinAmp3 related files that might have been damaged for some reason.

Try it out, hope it works

thanks for the reply .... i've already tried uninstalling and re-installing several times... but the problem is still there ... i've have gone back to 2.8 already ... but the titles of those folders are still without chinese text.
What i want to fix is.... having the chinese text there. THere was no problem with it before. Now the system crashes on me every 10 or mins ...

And I thought Xp was crash free .... How can I find out where the problem is ???
