Winamp crashes after adding media to library

[edit - Moderation]
This thread is old and relates mainly to v5.62 which is a very old Winamp release and the issues which led to this thread have since been resolved.

I have a really annoying problem that I can't seem to find a solution to ... Winamp keeps crashing after I add new media to the library.

I run 64 bit Windows 7 and have all my media on an external/usb powered hard drive. Up until recently I didn't have any issues but as of lately winamp will crash after I add new media to the library. I currently have a pretty large library (close to 60,000 songs) and I was wondering if Winamp has a library size limit. Also, would the fact that my media is on an external drive be an issue? Is there or will there ever be a 64 bit version of Winamp where issues like these will not exist?

Looking at my windows app log in the event viewer, I find the following info on the crash:

Faulting application name: winamp.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4ea85649
Faulting module name: MSVCR90.dll, version: 9.0.30729.6161, time stamp: 0x4dace5b9
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0003afac
Faulting process id: 0xec8
Faulting application start time: 0x01ccb53c7715e7b8
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.6161_none_50934f2ebcb7eb57\MSVCR90.dll
Report Id: 0e156ad4-2130-11e1-9ff5-0021704be9c3
Does anybody have any ideas on how I could go about solving this very annoying issue? Any help is greatly appreciated!
