Not My Winamp Playlist!

So, I opened Winamp this morning as I do every morning. After listening to music for a while, I went to play a specific track and I noticed that… wait a second… there is only 1,001 songs here and it stops at the letter L. I look at the playlist listing in Winamp and it says that it does, in fact, only have 1,001 songs.

After deciding not to jump off the roof… it appears that my playlist is in the toilet (if anyone has any solutions, please – please feel free). I’ve spent so much time building that playlist that it’s not funny. And it’s not something I back up because I’m not even sure how to or if it can be done without me manually exporting one once a day or something. I suppose I’ll look into it when my playlist is rebuilt.

Speaking of that… my music library is 13,657 files in 1,465 folders. 47.6 GB. I really dread re-building my list. So, yeah, this has kind of deflated my morning. It’s just my Winamp playlist, I know… but, it’s a big time pain when you listen to music as much as I do, which is everyday for hours a day, usually and you are as big a music fan as I am.

Argh. Couldn’t someone have just PM spammed at one of my sites or punched me in the gut or something?!

I work with/for you so I'd rather not spam at CA, and I'd rather not punch you. :(

Sorry to hear that, I hope everything works out. If you need any Rammstein I've got it. :P

Ouch. 47 GB is a LOT of music (mine is only 5.5 GB).

Hope you get everything back.
