WAV files

I bought musicmizer, on the strength of moviemizer, but uninstalled because it couldn't handle the tags in my WAV files - although other audio player can manage it...it's been over 1 year since then, thought it may have been updated enough to handle them...no!
I have over 1¾ TB of files, the automatic option was great..but the program cannot read the album title (instead it takes the folder name, which normally would be OK, but I have a number of CDs with the same name, so add a digit to the folder name). It can't manage CDs that have more than one disc..it presents a list of file names...(I add the disc number, followed by a '.' then the track number, all that is lost)..It seems Musicmizer isn't having bugs sorted out as fast as Moviemizer, or rather, it is, but WAV files have taken a 'back seat'

Can you upload a sample WAV file?

I've uploaded a zip file containing 2 WAV files, size 87MB - however, after the complete upload, it appears not to have been successful.
If the file did not arrive, I can upload it to my Dropbox account, and send you a link to download it from there?

Here is the link to download a zip file (wav files.zip). It contains 2 files from the same album, one from each disc
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/27325170/wav%20files.zip

Hope this helps sort out the problem with Musicnizer and Wav files
I've attached a screen shot of the album, showing the details in Explorer...

Hi Maniac -
One of the audio programs I have installed is 'dbpoweramp' which, I believe installs it's own enhanced 'view tags details', although I really only use it to convert the WAV files to FLAC, so I can play them on my portable MP3 player. I don't think Windows is able to read the tags in WAV files, if I play them in the WMP, all I get is the file name, I even have to change the 'folder.png' to 'folder.jpg' (just change the extension, not the format) to get the album art. Windows is 'non-audio friendly'
I use 'AlbumPlayer' to play the WAV files on my computer, and it's able to read the WAV tags.
Perhaps Musicnizer needs to look at creating it's own facilities' and not rely to heavily on Windows
Here's what Windows says about one of the files:

I only rip my WAV files from my CD's, I don't download any..I always ensure the tags are correct before ripping

~ Happy New Year ~
