Updating winamp


I like to have my entire music collection organized in folders, one for each album, and with all files perfectly named according to artist and song title.

Of course, this means they must be all properly tagged, a task that can be very time consuming regardless of what software you use.

This is why I was happy to find a very simple trick in Winamp to have all your MP3 automatically tagged for you.

Whenever you see a file on your playlist that’s not properly named or is displayed simply as “track01”, do the following: right click on the playlist entry and select View file info.

It all boils down to getting access to the core data file of your winamp media library (main.dat) and updating an outdated location to a hard drive or directory that has been moved.
