It continues happening despite changing skins to normal, deactivating visualizations and restarting my computer.

While Winamp is not running, try deleting the cddbplm.pdb cddbplm.idx cddbplm.gcf and elists.db files. That will start with a clean slate, then try rescanning.

The files will be located in...

%AppData%\WInamp\Plugins\Gracenote Where %appdata% is a shortcut to the 'Application Data'/'User Settings' folder. You can click on the Start button > click the Run icon and put %AppData%\WInamp\Plugins\Gracenote in the Open box and click OK. That should bring you to the Gracenote data folder in 'Application Data'/'User Settings'.

The actual path will vary with the current Windows version you are using. Example...

Windows Vista & Win7

For others reading this thread and using an earlier version of Windows...
Windows 2000 Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Winamp\Plugins\Gracenote

For some Win XP & 2000 users the files may be located in
C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins\Gracenote

Known bug, alas.

You'll have to delete the database files...

Close Winamp

In Windows Explorer, go to the Winamp\Plugins\Gracenote folder

Delete these 3 files only:

cddbplm.gcf :
cddbplm.pdb :
cddbplm.idx :

Reopen Winamp

Make sure there's an internet connection available, and Winamp is not being blocked by a firewall.

Restart the Playlist Generator scan, and let it complete 100%, without interrupt.

The bug is fixed for the next release.

Also, if you're using a proxy connection, then it isn't going to work until 5.51 (another known bug, already fixed internally).

If you have a new install of 5.5 or later then Winamp stores its settings, and I assume these files in %appdata%\Winamp
