#44 Files in playlist that refer to root disk are not picked up


Hi Uli,

First a compliment for this fine piece of software, it's getting better and better!

I'm using the Windows port (and thanks for fixing this previous bug: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1671132&group_id=141999&atid=751213\).

This bug is probably related to that one. Here we go.

In the directory G:\Playlists I have all my playlists (.m3u files) gathered. I have for example this small playlist (G:\Playlists\new.m3u):

#EXTINF:247,British Sea Power - Waving Flags
\British Sea Power - Waving Flags.mp3
#EXTINF:268,Air - All I Need
\Lijsten\Top 100 van de jaren 90\018 - Air - All I Need.mp3

Now this is the problem. FUPPES adds the playlist as a container, however, if I try to play this playlist on my music device it doesn't play anything. My guess (haha, be careful with that :]) is that FUPPES goes wrong when adding an item to this container.

The playlist refers to '\British Sea Power - Waving Flags.mp3', in real system path terms, this should however be: 'G:\British Sea Power - Waving Flags.mp3'.

And for the 2nd item: 'G:\Lijsten\Top 100 van de jaren 90\018 - Air - All I Need.mp3' instead of '\Lijsten\Top 100 van de jaren 90\018 - Air - All I Need.mp3'.

Of course, I can change all my .m3u files and add 'G:' in front of every path, but Winamp keeps changing that back :].

Kind regards,
Harm van Tilborg
