Android Winamp Pro can not find music files

I never had this problem before, but I tried to add new files to my phone and I can not get any media player, including WinAmp pro, to recognize them. I ran "Rescan SD" and "Rescan Media" and I still have nothing in my "Artist", Album" or "Songs" categories. But strangely under "Genres" I have a category called "Rock" and I can find all of my files there. I am using Android version 2.3.4.
I can play the files by selecting them with the folder selection, but the auto sync program does not find them. I just deleted some files that I had on my phone that WinAmp could see. I tried to put them back and now the phone will not recognize them. I even rebooted the phone and unmounted and then mounted the SD card. Still no good.

Try clearing the media database

For Android 2.x
Android Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Media Storage > Clear data
Restart the phone
Wait a few minutes for the media database to be rebuilt before opening the Winamp app.
