Why is not Winamp my default player in WinXP?

I have Winamp 5.5 and Windows Media 11 installed here.
I'm using WinXP.

In Explorer, MP3 files appear as "Winamp media file".
If I open a MP3 file, Winamp appears and starts to play it.
That's OK.

But when I insert a CD with MP3 files, Windows Media appears and starts to play the files, not Winamp. Why?

Right-clicking the CD Drive icon and selecting Properties, in the Autoplay tab, there's no action called "Play using Winamp" so that I can select it. But there is such an option to Audio CDs.

I would like to have Winamp playing my CDs with MP3 files automatically.
Please, any ideas?

Thank you.
