" Things that always go wrong and fixes: Media Player and rest winamp as stuck off sc


Love the winamp.

Not an IT person.

2 priobs taht crop up every few months or are the media player "greying out" OR the position of the winamp partially "falls" off screen and you cannot move it.

The solutions can be found on these forums but thought Id repost to save you an hour's trawling.

Delete Studio.xnf file if screen "stuck"
Delete main.idx file if media library greyed out

The relevent folder is by defaulf hidden so paste this folder into your run/command prompt (same on all operating systems)


Both incriminating items are in this folder.

Sometimes my playlist get deleted at least from view when in Winamp, but they will also be in this folder, intact, not lost. Click on the file and it will play in winamp. You can then save the playlist (again) in Winamp so Winamp can see

Hope this helps someone
