Local Media not being displayed.(Image included)

I can't get that to get off, and I can't access any of my local media. My playlists display just fine. It used to do that just as I opened Winamp, and so I'd just click video and it'd go to normal. Now it doesn't do anything and video displays the same way. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted my computer, ran my computer in safe mode, I've done everything in my knowledge that could possibly fix the problem and nothing's worked. It did this on my laptop previously, as well.

Both computers are running Windows 7 Limited Edition(launch party). I dug around a bit in the forums and found nothing on this, maybe I didn't look hard enough. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

That looks like yet another broken library database.

Search the forums for 'empty library', there you can find tons of other threads with helpful infos.

Most of the times, the only solution is deleting the library database file, which are located under:


I highly recommence that you do periodic updates of your whole Winamp settings. I've written a tool which can do it for you, and restore the files when needed. Take a look at the 'Winamp Backup Tool' link in my signatur.

Grey/blank Local Media views in Media Library

It's just the main.idx file which you'll need to delete...
