Apollo16, you might want to switch on display of filename extensions in Windows. Sometimes it’s just another filetype, and some files are poorly named, i.e. "Whatever.mp3.wma".
If you are using Winamp, it might also be worth checking out the file type associations in Winamp – when installing/running other software, these sometimes get reset. (Options/Preferences/General Preferences/File Types).
Some programs are notorious in »stealing away« file type associations. You might want to find these and disable it, or use the »Winamp agent« to permanently watch them.
Thank you for support, but
I have proved to create an mp3 using Cdex and codec Lame 3.98.2 from my original CD Audio.
In this mode is a file with correct extension: "mp3"
I have rename the file to the name "Test.mp3"
I have loaded into Mp3Tag and when I click on the only file loaded taht is Test.mp3
Winamp starts and play it.
Then I have renamed Test.mp3 into "HomeTest.mp3" and I reloaded it in the list of Mp3Tag
and clicking again on it Mp3Tag open explorer and not Winamp to play it also if it is always an mp3!
The problem is the initial word equal "Home".
If I click direct on file using Windows and not Mp3Tag, Winamp are correcttly started and the music
The option of associations of Winamp are correct.
On some machines there exists an environment variable called 'HOME'.
(press [WindosKey + R], open 'cmd /k set home')
The inner value of this variable can be extracted by the expression '%HOME%' and points e. g. to the current user's home directory, which is likely the same place to which the environment variable 'USERPROFILE' points to.
Look at Mp3tag's Options/Tools settings. Is there an entry to invoke WinAmp?
Check the command line string. Is there any %HOME% environment variable substitution?
If so, then be aware that Mp3tag eats up one pair of percent signs!
Maybe you have to double the percent signs to work properly e. g. '%%HOME%%'.
If the problem cannot be solved on Mp3tag application level, then look around in your system to find the alien which puts a 'home' in front of the filename when invoking the file.
I have looked Mp3Tag's option Tools and is empty, NOT invoke Winamp.
I'm a beginner.
Can you explain better the procedure that you have wrote ?
I have an old keyboard and my operating system is Windows2000 sp4.
WindowsKey + R is equal to write the string on Run icon: "cmd /k set home" ??
the systen answer me:
As you said, WinAmp is your standard player, and starting music files from within explorer is working correctly, what is about to remove all the filetype bindings from WinAmp (Winamp/options/filetypes) and re-associate the music file types with WinAmp?
Thanks for your patience,
I have removed from winamp the association and then mp3 running under Windows Media Player.
Then I re-associate all types to Winamp loaded Mp3Tag but the problem persist.
I have done an other prove.
I ask to my friend to do a prove under your system: Windows Xp Sp3 using my version of
Winamp and Mp3Tag.
THE PROBLEM THERE ISN'T !!!
The problem are causer from my Operating system Windows 2000!
How I touch ??
Yes a portable applications.
But now I have proved with versions not portable.
I have installed Mp3Tag.exe and installed Winamp.
The problem persist.
Nothing to do.
Patience the problem can not be solved!!
Fortunately I have only 5-6 Mp3 Music that starts with word "home".
I rename the name of file.mp3 and I don't modify Their Tags.
In this mode the problem will not appear and the search are always correct.
