    No issues here, update and everything installed.

    You have tried different files right? Just to make sure.

    APparently this happens to variable bit rate files. try turning off the get information from internet autmatically.

    Don't know if this will affect those files that are already have this problem.http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=3244

    I just installed CCCP gives me media player classic, ffdshow and mkv support. Works out of the box plays everything you are likely to play and is better then VLC on windows.

    ya know? iTunes is working pretty good, except for one thing. It will not automatically update the playlists. Every time I make changes with the tags, I have to take the files out of the playlist and add them back in again. That gets to be annoying. I wish they would put folder monitoring in it ...

    I have heard mention of some changes in the last leaked screenshot build but haven't been able to find any specifics.

    According to M$ mp3 files should be set to Read Only to avoid such from happening, and it's still possible to fix corrupted mp3 files by restoring them to their previous versions.

    Work around and update can be found here:

    hope this helps....

    Thank you, prinsipe. I will look in to that. The way it is going with itunes, so far, I think I will stick with it for a little bit. I do need to update my id tags anyhow .. Some of them are a real mess lol .. .
