    ? What are the file formats?
    Those images just say what application is opening the file.

    Oh, that's what I mean then, how do I get those Winamp songs be played by the standard Windows 8 music app?

    Apparently they're .ogg files, and I'd have to use an online converter to convert each one by one.

    Ugh, nevermind, looks like I lost a bunch of songs.

    Why would you lose files? You just have to convert them from ogg vorbis to whatever format you want them in.

    He means he's lazy lol.

    You'll either need to batch convert them to MP3 (there's plenty of apps out there to do that), use a dedicated OGG Windows 8 player (if you want a Metro app that snaps), or install MPC-HC and use that for everything which is what I do.
