    At first I thought this was a problem with just Winamp, but now it seems that everything I download won't allow me to do this either.

    I'll set the default player to whatever program I'm using (ie. Winamp), and then try opening a music file. No problem. But once I select a certain number of songs (not sure if it's based on total size or # of songs) and hit enter... it opens them up in a playlist in Windows Media Player instead of the other default player. They're all .mp3's too, so its not like there's one file in there that's a .wma or something and throwing a wrench into it... it's purely based on the number of songs.

    What do I do?

    Thanks :)

    I agree that there's an effect. It isn't unique to your computer and it seems to come into action on the sixteenth song selected and onward.
    Unfortunately I don't know the answer to this.

    My response is to open the songs with the player (I use VLC), dragging them into the playlist or using the player's own open with dialogue.

    I can't duplicate this. I'm playing a 44 song playlist in Winamp right now.
