Winamp freezes after i click eject..

I've got a 30gb ipod video. I've been using this plugin with it for years without issues. For some reason today after i added an album and tried to eject, Winamp froze. I havent changed any settings. I disconnected, reconnected, tried it again, updated the plugin, cleaned the database.. i've done everything. When i put the ipod up to my ear i can hear it doing something, but winamp remains frozen and no matter how long i wait nothing happens. I waited for 3 hours one time and it still remained frozen. It refuses to write a new database.

I had the same problem after upgrading to Winamp 5.572. I went back to 5.571 and it worked again. I have not tested 5.572 again to verify.

k i fixed it
embarrassingly simple

just delete itunesdb.old from your itunes control or w/e it's called folder inside the hard disk of your ipod

windows explorer might lock up when you try to delete it so i used a program called Delete Invalid File -> navigated to my itunes control folder, deleted the file then opened winamp up and everything was back to normal when i tried to write a new database
