Apps / Software :: Locating Winamp Playlists On Local Disc In Win 8.1?
Jul 17, 2014
My OS is Win 8.1. I use Twonky media server to play my music remotely on my smart TV. Obviously, it scans my music libraries, however, I want to have it scan for new playlists as well. I use Winamp as my music player. Where on my local disk a file is created when I generate a playlist in Winamp?
I did a clean installation of Windows 8.1 a few months ago.Then I installed all my apps and manually migrated settings of all the software i use ( from a Windows 7 image ) . I also did this for Winamp .
Everything works 100% since the installation, but when using Winamp the ' current' playlist which the program automatically creates sporadically will not save!After opening a random number of times, the playlist disappeared spontaneously thus winamp was started with an empty playlist.
This means i can load my recursive playlist each time i start Winamp ( very frustrating with 50K + mp3's ).I can not think of any software that is installed on my PC which could affect this situation (I don't use a separate antivir. Just Windows Defender).
What I've done so far:
- Uninstalled Winamp. Removed the settings folder. Reinstalled Winamp.
- No additional plugins / addons or whatever installed for winamp .
- Double checked and forced the read-only flag on the winamp user data folder (to make sure the playlist can be saved/written).
The settings folder is in the following location : C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingWinamp
The current playlist is saved as : Winamp.m3u and Winamp.m3u8
It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this?
I have saved numerous files to my hard drive which I am now going back through in trying to put the proper dates that they were made (most of them are audio files; but there are definitely files from every category) and for the most part, I am able to get all of the information that I needed just by right clicking on the file, scrolling down to "Properties" and then selecting the "Details" tab. Nevertheless, for some reason, a good 25-40% of them show a completely inaccurate date. So my question is: any failsafe/foolproof way of finding the correct date in question and on top of that, knowing whether or not that date is actually legitimate; whether that be with the use of some outside program, a command prompt, or some other shortcut?
Since 02.01.2013 my Windows 8 is rebooting without a warning, and this is happening every morning when I come to work, I've noticed that Windows will restart when I double click a song in Winamp, once it happened when I tried to open a e-mail in Outlook, bust mostly it happens with Winamp.
I have all Windows updates installed, installed latest Winamp version still when I double click or drag&drop a file in Winamp, Windows will restart.
There is no dump file, the system only restarts without BSOD.
OK, so I made a backup DVD of some OS related programs for my computers onto a DVD, but when I attempted to MOUNT the image from the disk to Win 8.1's included virtual drive, I get an error that the Disc Image is not formatted for NTFS file system, and cannot be mounted.
I can copy the files from the disc to a location on the desktop and execute the files from there, but it's a royal pain in the neck to do this every time.
(Yes, I understand, I probably will need to build a new image and burn it to a new DVD, but I want to make it one that I can run the disc from my optical drive and it will work!).
USB is volatile storage, and can be erased. I prefer hardcopy backups for this reason.
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?
I accidentally changed my admin account into local account now i can't install apps and do anything with it. Whenever I try to install some apps it always say.. type an administrators password but then I don't know how to. All I remember was that before i change my account into standard account.
I downloaded the drivers for windows 7 x64bit for the SD card reader in my system. I have installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64.
I had the same issue with Windows 8 and now that I have settled on 8.1 need to fix my card reader. Funny thing is that the drivers from Microsoft load (2006) and all devices look fine in Device Manager.
Even after installing the link from Acer and even searching around and getting other ones from Lenovo, HP still no go.

In Windows 8.1 they removed option to create bootable DVD/BluRay recovery. Only USB drive left.
I bought new laptop with recovery partition and I want to move backup to DVD's/BluRay. How can I do that? I don't want to do backup of backup. I want to recovery directly from DVD's/BluRay.
So using of tools, which backup this recovery parition isn't solution. Than I have to restore partition and from partition restore system. I tried backup on usb and burn all files to disc, but BluRay didn't became bootable. USB was.

Upgraded to windows 8 pro, worked fine for sometime, but now it does not boot- says either error loading operating system or disc read error. Re installed Windows 8 after booting with another hard drive with winXP, worked fine for sometime, then it failed again displaying the same error messages. Been using this system since long, but this has never happened before. I have reinstalled again by the same procedure, but always wary of the same problem happening again.
I am converting a file from my software onto disc and coz i leave the laptop to get on with the job and when i get back to the laptop its gone into like a sleep. I then have to right click the desktop and entre my password to find out that my converting to disc was dead.. when i stop at the laptop converting this never happens...is there a way to stop my laptop from doing this?
I am trying to copy a CD to disc using Media Player. When I try to set the destination location by clicking CHANGE in Rip settings/More options/Rip music to this location, nothing happens. I can't set a location. When I click the Rip CD button, I get the message "Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted."
The Media Player sees the CD and can play the tracks from the CD, so it's not that it can't find the CD.
I had a 20 GB image file . Weeks before the partitions with the appropriate drive software acronis all files have been deleted . Therefore Ontrack.EasyRecovery.Professional.10.1.0.1 recovery software to recover files but when I run the ISO file with the following error is encounteredlogin .
So I just got my computer about a month ago and I have noticed that 2 or 3 times a week it freezes up for 15-20 minutes or more, and the Disk usage is at 100% on the performance monitor. I checked the system error logs and found that the Bonjour service from apple had a critical error when it froze. I then disabled the service from running and computer ran fine for a week or so then started freezing again. I have ran disk optimizer, defrag, and virus scans with no success to fixing the problem. On the processes tab of the performance monitor it will show a few different processes using the most disk i/o. Windows Installer, Windows Module Installer Worker, System, and few others I cant remember right now.
Side note: this problem happens at any time with 0 programs up and running or 10 programs. I have 16 GB of memory so its not a memory problem. Just hope its something that can be fixed and I didnt just waste a bunch of money on a crap machine.
My pc is a hp pavilion 64 bit desktop computer model # P6- 2220t it is 5 months old. It originally came with windows 7 then I upgraded to windows 8. I went ahead and used windows 8 to create an image of my hard disc and store it on a usb external hard drive I also made a repair disc.
Everything went well the pc backed up on scheduled and doing well in backing up. My big problem is this I tried to boot from the repair disc but it won't I looked at the bios but it is different from the type of bios that I am familiar.
I have a system that froze and I have been struggling with for days. Long story short, Lenovo Twist with solid state hard drive and no optical disc drive. I woke up last week and had a black screen. So I rebooted and went through the steps to recover (not 12 after a couple of days of free time I had to force the recovery with f10 and then I could only get the reset windows option to come up wanting me to insert my recovery media.
I don't have any. Windows 8 was preinstalled so I don't have the key. Yes it was visible on the system but that's not an option now and without a optical disc I couldn't burn a recovery disc.
After arguing with Lenovo, Staples, and Microsoft about warranties etc. I want to just get my system running. I want to buy windows 8 and install from a stick or external optical drive right? I cannot just download to the stick and insert into a usb slot. I cannot restore from a factory (Microsoft) CD if I bought the external drive.
I am trying to create a system repair disc, and I am getting the message: "do not have the files to create system repair disc". Why? How do I get those files. Never had a problem like this trying to create a system back up in the past. Running Windows 8.
When I burn a disc it with nero it burns over the data ring to the end when i burn with imgburn it burns deep up to the data ring then shallow over the top of it. my disc's are dvd-r I have'nt changed them.the pc burned ok before.Iv done every thing i know cleaned, sent it back to factory settings. did asfc scan which was normal.
