I have never ever imported music into the Winamp library and simply use Explorer or Explorer ++ to organise my Music

Additionally I have also had problems with Winamp on occasion but resolved it by in-installing and downloading the version available on Nimite.com.
This kseems to work fine at the moment on both my desktop and Laptop.

central through a bunch of stuff I don't really care about. But maybe I
just need to learn it better. I organize my own music, so other than
pointing it at a folder and letting it go on random or shuffle or
whatever, I don't think I need an organizer. I thought of VLC but I'm
not sure if that has enough control or accessibility, though I gather
you can make whatever keyboard shortcuts for it you want, so it's a
If anybody's got recommendations, I'd surely appreciate some. I'd keep
using Winamp, but apparently 200 plus GB of music is the point at which
Winamp throws up its hands and runs away to hide in a closet. So I guess
it's time to use something else, which is too bad, because I still dig
