Default Winamp does not detect Creative Zen Xtra correctly- RESOLVED Winamp 5.6

Hi all,

Player: Creative Zen Xtra 60GB (DAP-HD0011)
Firmware: (the MTP/P4S one)

Windows XP - SP3
WMP 11
Winamp 5.58

I am currently having what seems to be a software/driver issue with my work laptop (details listed above), and trying to use winamp to sync/play songs directly off my Zen Xtra

I can use WMP or Songbird to sync songs on to the Zen, but Winamp seems to no longer detect it properly. When it is first connected, Winamp seems to detect the player, but then in the media library everything comes up blank, and as zero duration songs.
I have attached a screenshot of what it looks like.

I have tried re-installing WMP11, Winamp, installed MTP porting kit in an attempt to get this working reliably, but no success so far. sometimes the player is picked up correctly in winamp, but that only seems to happen once in a blue moon. Have not tried re-installing Windows, but as this is a work laptop i do not have that option

Now, i also have a PC at home with almost identical set-up in terms of software, and that has no problems with Winamp detecting the player and streaming the songs off it directly.

Has anyone seen this issue before, and do they know what normally resolves it?

thanks in advance!
