Local Media...not loading?

I'm using Winamp Pro v5.581 (with bento skin), along with Windows XP SP3. Problem here that just started, is that whenever i access the "Local Media" section on the sidebar, nothing loads. I just get a solid grey-ish color. I can add media and stuff to the library, but i can't view it obviously since it doesn't load. What's funny is that i can still play my music, well atleast the music that's in my playlists under the "Playlists" section on the sidebar. I've reset my computer, used system restore, and nothing. What's worse is that i just formatted my computer last week, and i have no idea what is going on. I REALLY hate to go back to itunes :/

here's a picture of what i get when i try to access anything under the "local media" section.

please and thank-you

additionally, you've said you're using 5.581 when the screenshot indicates 5.621

in either case, 5.623 is the currently supported version and since 5.622, there is an information panel shown if the library corruption issue happens which makes it easier to know what has happened / get the library back to a state where things can be re-added.

however, there is nothing which can be done to get the data back from the corrupted database file as a completely empty file as happens.
