Something's messing up my File Times

Hey there--

this is a long shot, but maybe someone has an idea:

I've been using Winamp for a looong time, and I care about my music collection's file times because it helps me sort the new stuff etc. Whenever I upgrade to a new external HD etc, I always make sure that the file times stay untouched.

Lately though, I see problems. Any song in an album where one song has been played, either on Winamp or my iPod (which is connected via ml_ipod), is updated to a more recent file time. Actually, they're all updated to almost the same time, as if one process ran through and changed all of these files.

Two questions --

1) any ideas what may be causing this? Obviously it could be a million things and I probably need to try eliminating causes, but maybe someone has seen something similar before.

2) any way of fixing it? is there a way, either in winamp or with another tool, to reset the file times or change them to something in the past so at least the older albums don't show up in "recently added" and similar smart playlists?

Thanks much. It seems like a small thing but this is bugging the hell out of me.
