There was a lengthy forum discussion a while ago about how Winamp would convert the 0 to 255 values to 1 to 5 stars and the reverse. It was mainly about the cutoff points from 1 star level to the next. If I remember correctly, the decision was made to use a formula rather than a look-up table. I don't remember how Winamp was to decide if the 1-5 or 0-255 scale was being used when reading a file it didn't write the rating for. Do you know?
