Winamp crashes when syncing music library

Q: Winamp crashes when syncing music library

Hi all,

Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?

Thanks,

-'Mage

EDIT: Mods, please delete this thread, I reposted it in "Misc. Software". Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Winamp crashes when syncing music library

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hey there.
i'm having some troubles with winamp library, not related to win 7, but i would like some assistant.

i'm trying to sort the albums by the name of the album itself, but the library sort it by the artist and then by album.

for example, if i have several artists in the same album then the library will separate them:

its really annoying, anyone know how can i sort them by albums only?

A:Winamp Library

Tried using 'Smart View" in the Library? Set it to Custom, then set it to sort by album, contains, and the album name.

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.
 

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

I have converted my home desktop to Windows 8 Pro, installed iTunes as well as updated media player. I have added all my music and got my playlists working well. I just bought the Windows phone. htc 8x. I would like to sync my music to the phone, but I was hoping there was a cloud based application, or maybe putting my music on skydrive.

Is there a way to somehow link my home library to the cloud, or make my library accessible by my phone? It would be nice to have it virtual so I do not have to be physically at my home PC.

If not, With windows 8 desktop and phone what are the best methods and programs for sync?

Hello. I hope this is the correct forum.
 
Two questions about syncing an iPhone.
 
1. My iPhone 5 was at capacity so I deleted songs. I then backed it up to the iCloud. Now my iPhone 6 has larger capacity. How can I sync all songs in my iTunes library to the new iPhone? I assume there is a manual way of doing this and then the songs will sync to the iCloud in due course.
 
2. I've never known how to sync my calendar and contacts between my Outlook and my iPhone. How do I do this?
 
I have a PC with Windows 7.
 
Thanks.

A:iTunes error 13001 syncing music

Solved!

I thought I would post this for others' benefit - it was a weird one.

Even though I was able to copy the entire music library to another Mac and sync it to the same iPhone with no problem, the more I kept experimenting on the machine with the problem, the more I narrowed it down that it looked like an incompatibility (or corruption) with a file or files. So, I added columns to display the Bit Rate and Sample Rate. Then, by sorting those columns and syncing combinations until it broke, I worked my way through looking for an offender.

It ended up being Sample Rate. For whatever reason, any music file with a Sample Rate over 44.1 kHz (so 48 kHz) would cause the 13001 error (thanks for being so descriptive, by the way, Apple!). So, I just converted the few songs that my daughter had that were 48 kHz down to 44.1 kHz and no more 13001 error syncing music!

I hope this info can help someone some day. It drove me nuts!

I listen to my music on Winamp, yet when I'm using any other program that plays some sound effect (for example, playing some online game on Google Chrome), every time the game makes a bit of a loud sound effect, for a second or so, the music lowers itself for that second, then goes back to its normal volume.

I'm assuming this is some default option that is auto-enabled in Windows 8, since Windows XP never used to do this.

What option do I need to disable so all programs playing sound will not interfere and lower other programs' volume down?

It other words, what option do I need to disable so all the sounds play at an exact same level at all times?

Thanks a bunch

Now, I did all the "Fixes" listed in the forum to no avail. I uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times with the latest version of Winamp, 5.5.7.2789.
I did the remove and replace on the ntdll.dll file. I even disabled data Execution for winamp. All these "Fixes" did nothing. BTW... Winamp is the only prg affected by the ntdll.dll error.

SO... anyone got any new ideas?

Sounds like you have done everything -ntdll errors can be caused by many things- have you tested your memory? Doubt if that is the cause as WinAmp is the only thing failing?

For me I dumped WinAmp a year ago - as it constantly froze up- and I would have to reboot every time I wanna to burn something.
I now use Jet Audio and have had no problems- it's free and it will burn anything! I use it for movies - you can take out all the subtitles with a right click.

First of all: Using WMP for music collections is a bad Idea. It's ui is rubbish. But what's more it also messes up the media folders. It creats thounsands of cryptically named copies of the albums art files, it stores them hidden and marks them as system files and in some cases it even converts a ordinary folder.jpg file into a hidden system file. Get some decent media player like Winamp, Media Monkey or even VLC player.

Music library and mp player Hi I know that If you rip an original CD track to MP kbps and then for whatever reason decide to compress that MP even further - say to that would result in some loss of quality But Building a music library I am ripping everything on and downloading on too But then with my future mp player having music on format that doesn t allow to store a lot in the player So thought I could compress a bit more and the quality yes the quality will be lower but then you want good quality you don t use a mp player but a normal stereo Am I right or wrong But then the And Music Player Library Mp3 days of cd are counted so we still need to put music on digital format for the future so what quality audio to use Stay with mp Or go with some other format Music Library And Mp3 Player like apple or wma from window media player Or some new recent one but may be not compatible with my new mp player and meaning I have to re-rip all my audio again Then technology will be there and there will be no need of compression And then the web will be access from everywhere and we wont Music Library And Mp3 Player have our own computer but subscribing monthly to some web site to use and listen the music and for every thing else So I am getting so confused and lost my question is what you do today and what do you recommend And about the future how are you going to keep up thanks

A:Music Library And Mp3 Player

Here are my thoughts about this:No#1. Let today be today. If your music is .mp3, then keep it that way. Don't get tricked into the hype of what tomorrow may be like. You may not see tomorrow. Just keep doing as you're doing, and forget about the Jones'No#2. No one knows what tomorrow may bring, and since music isn't important as to being prepared for tomorrow, I wouldn't even think about it. If you need more room to store your files, then invest into another hard drive, and dedicate it to just your music.Your bitrate quality will really get disturbed if you went to a very low bitate, compared to it's original format/bitrate. And again, if your music sounds good to you, and you like it, leave it be. Don't go making projects out of things you really don't want to be wasting your time on. And yes, I know, the higher the bitrate, the larger the file size. It's your move now... so what are you going to do? I say just get more hard drive/storage space, and you'll nip it in the bud..wma formats, I always convert them to .mp3.Windows Media Player? If you're gonna use it (I see no reason why you would), just be aware that by default it is set to protect your music you rip using it. What that means is that your music is protected and it's virtually held hostage on your computer. Burning it from there won't work either. So, if you're going to use WMP, make sure you uncheck the Protect My Files checkbox. Even still, I'll never trust WMP with my music.Also, there is no reason to try to keep up with the ever growing of music softwares, just to listen to your music. If you use a program that plays your music, and it plays very well, then leave well enough alone. Alot of programs are designed to trick you, (like Windows Media Player), and they will DRM protect your music, and block you from transferring your music from your computer to disc, or where ever else you may want to put your music. Soon, you'll be posting here stating, your music all of a sudden doesn't play, you can't burn anything, your burner doesn't work, the programs you've used before all of a sudden don't work, you can play one file type, and not the other..... and the list goes on and on.Take this advice from someone that knows these computers and will inform you of what you should know about them. Trying to keep up with the Jones' and using the wrong softwares at the same time will get your computer slammed with problems.

So, my itunes library is almost perfected for my needs and includes all the music i want on my computer. however, when i go to my music folder from start, it's really disorganized and i can't stand it. i just want to know if there is a program or something that i can download that will organize my music, not just create another library and play it. the thing is, when i fixed my itunes library, i changed the artist, album, artwork etc. , but not on the original file. i want to keep all that junk too. basically, i just want it all organized. i'm really bad at describing my problem, sorry! anybody help! thanks!
 

A:Managing my music library, help!

Hey, if you bring up your iTunes and click on the advanced menu, then choose Consolidate Library, this will copy your files into your designated itunes folder under the directory artist/album. Also the files will be copied and not moved, so after you bring order to the chaos so to speak, you can delete your originals. And iTunes will recognise the change in directory so you wont have to re-add your library!

Did you save the playlist. Logical thing to do if your making a large list. This happened to me a few times with Winzip with a Playlist of about 400 Songs. Luckily i saved my playlist after i add about 10 new songs to it.

If you use Windows Media Player in Windows 7, you can tell it to look for music in a certain location.

One feature I like with WMP (Windows Media Player) and Windows Media Center is that they have the options to automatically search online and replace incorrect information with your songs, artists, etc. at the same time finding missing information (ie: album cover) however this feature has to be turned on. Go through your preferences and see if you would like this and then turn it on.

I am having a problem where no matter what I do, Windows Media Player 12 gives me a "there are no items in your music library"! there is no option to add anything anywhere! when I google the message, it tell me to go to "organize<manage libraries<music" the first 4 results in Google says to do that, the rest of Google is just spam.
the problem is when I go to organize<manage libraries<music, nothing happens! I need to sync music to my Sansa Fuse+ but cannot because of this problem! please help!
 
 
EDIT: I want to also mention that the "library" link/tab is grayed out in WMP12. deleting the appdata did not help! other than that Google full of spam

A:wmp12 "there are no items in your music library"

The "library" is not even a real location...it's just a virtual location that doesn't have any content unless someone chooses to place "files" there by having them imported to that location.  In reality...all that happens (IMO) is that a pointer/shortcut is placed there which points to the real file location and allows it to be accessed/played.
 
I don't even use it on my Win 7 install, preferring to use other players (which do the same thing as WMP without all the unnecessary trash).
 
If WMP doesn't give you the option to "import" files into the library...try another player and sync your files with it.
 
To find the real locations of your music files...you can use a tool like Everything Search Engine - http://www.voidtools.com/ and use the generic file extension (e.g. *.mp3) to find all .mp3 files.

My sister just bought one of these (Eposn P-2000 picture viewer and MP3 player).
I have an iPod and when I want to add songs I just connect to my computer and it launches iTunes.
My sister seems to think she can just add MP3's one at a time. She hasn't set up a music library. I told her when you have 100's of song files it makes sense to put them in a library like Windows Media PLayer or iTunes. I don't think the P-2000 supports iTunes. Does anybody know what it does work with, or is it it's own system, and you have to just add songs one at a time.

Delete your iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml from the computer with the problem and then re-add the music. They are normally stored in the My Music\iTunes folder but I don't know where they would be stored on your machine. It sounds like you copied the library files over from the computer with all your music on the C drive so the new computer will look for the files on the C drive. The only way to stop this is to delete the library and have it re-find the songs.

OK I think I have a new problem.
I couldn’t add new music to my library and tried the direction on this site to move/delete WMP database files.
This works fine and I could then add more music …
problem solved but only temporariliy.
Once MP11 rebuilt my library, the problem returned.
So every time I want to add new music, I have to dump the old library database files and rebuild.
This is a problem as it takes three days to rebuild as I have a large music libary.
Any Ideas? Could it be because my library is too big?
Any advice is appreciated.

This doesn't prevent the greyed out tracks being played in iTunes, but if I try and burn those tracks to make a compilation CD, they wont burn. There is no such problem with the tracks shown in black (on the same CD). I've tried re-downloading the CD, but it makes no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this problem gratefully received.

From a command prompt go to the directory where all these folders exist.

the list.txt file should have all the directory names for you. It'll also have couple of extra lines you might want to remove for current directory and parent directory.

I have "My Music" folders on three different machines. I want to merge them all as simply as possible into one single "My Music" folder. Most albums are in their own folders, but some are across multiple folders (thanks, iTunes).

I need something that'll take the contents of the three folders, merge them, and put all songs back into folders named for their albums (and under their artists' names).

Impossible?

No one has been able to describe this and trying to find a fix on the internet is proving to be impossible at least through Google Basically music to library randomly seems skip I m playing music and all of a sudden it stops I click the player and it s not responding for a few seconds and then goes to a new song If I happen to have it on top of all the other windows I see music library seems to skip randomly the media player cycling through a bunch of songs and music library seems to skip randomly then it starts playing one I say media player becuase I have tried WMP VLC Songbird and WinAmp but they all do the same thing edit I can go back and play through the song it just skipped through just fine So if Metallica - Enter Sandman skips and I go back to play the song it plays through just fine end edit This is completely random however I have noticed it tends to happen more after mins- hour of being asleep shut down a while Then it s even more random to the point where I may not even have the problem It seems to be doing it more often now though so I m getting worried more annoyed I thought maybe it was my hard drive cause it s happened a couple times while watching anime the video just stops and goes to the beginning This has only happened within the last weeks though So I switched to my library on an external hard drive but it still happens on there So then I tried installing songbird on my nd hard drive and playing it on there Maybe my main hard drive is going I was thinking Nope mins later it does it a couple of times music library seems to skip randomly I did build this computer in late July however it still happened on my old build So that s why I tested the hard drives since they are the only things that are the same It s also just the music I tested with a YouTube video playing and a video on my main hard drive Songbird at the time on the nd hard drive skipped but the audio was still playing on both the YouTube and VLC Anyone got any ideas At the moment I am testing a video on the nd hard drive as well as audio playing seeing if they both go out which would I think point to the nd hard drive But that seems odd that both my nd hard drive and external would do the same thing I also disabled enhancements as that seems to be a popular thing in search results Thanks for any and all help nbsp

I had a video on the 2nd hard drive playing as well as the audio. When it happened, both VLC and WMP failed. However, it finally logged an application error in the Event Viewer with this error for VLC (it force closed basically):

My brother just downloaded a bunch of mp3s into my Music folder in my new laptop. I recently bought a 5.5 gen Video iPod and decided to include all these new songs in it. By dragging and dropping them into the iTunes library, they all went in.

That´s what I thought! When I saw the Library list, it was much shorter! I tried to manually drag-and-drop specific mp3s that hadn´t been copied onto the Library list. The ¨plus sign¨ icon indicating a file is being included showed up, but the file is not in there.

I have checked the properties in these files and they are the same as others in the Library, why are they not going thru?

Thanks,

Ivo

On the "home" tab the edit option is there, but not accessible.

I can click to remove the bad info, but it does not apply it to the file. (the info remains attached)

Hello and thank you for reading,

I have a large digital music collection of about 5,000 songs. I just recently switched from a Windows Computer to a Mac. I transfered the files to the Mac and converted them to AAC - which promptly lost approximately 1,500 songs (I still have the Windows backups).

The library has become quite cumbersome to keep organized. iTunes does not provide an adequately easy interface to manage large amounts of somewhat unorganized files and I am looking for something more powerful.

A quick search online showed me several programs for Windows, but I wasn't able to find anything for Mac OS X. Does anybody have any suggestions for how I might organize this library?

In the default libraries there is a corresponding public folder of each library e.g. Documents/public documents, Pictures/public pictures etc...

But the only library showing the public folder is the music library. Why is this and how can I make it not show without removing the public music folder?


Thanks.

I've noticed that the music library always shows folders (not files) first when ordering by date (created/modified). In Vista, files can be shown first, which I prefer since I can see my most recent music files. So my question is... is it possible to change this, to display files and then folders (as in Vista)?
Thanks in advance.

Update: it happens in all the libraries, not only in the music one. However in the computer explorer it doesn't, I mean, files appear in the first place.

Hey guys,

I have playlists setup so that my various MP3 devices can sync with different music.

In the future, I would like to be able to drag a music file (from a windows folder) directly into a certain playlist, AND have it go into the main library, all it once. Is this possible?

Right now, if I try to drag a song into a playlist, it will not let me. The only way I can do it now is by dragging the song into the main library, finding it, and then putting it in the playlist from within the library.

As you may guess, this is quite troublesome if I have many artists I am dragging into the library since I must go through find each one, and then drag. Thanks!

You could drag all of your music files into the library one time and leave them there. Then select songs from the library to put into the playlist.

As an example, The Itunes directory is in My Music. My Music is in a Music library, so the file details in explorer include album, #, etc. Within Itunes is the Apps directory and other data where "album name" doesn't make sense. I want it to display as a non-music directory. There doesn't seem to be any way to set the default columns displayed in a directory within a Music Library without changing how all the directories are displayed. Nor does there seem to be a way to remove a Music Library sub-directory from being considered as a Music Library member.
