Unhappy Winamp won't discover my Android device over WIFI

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Service Pack 1

Winamp v5.621 (x86)

Winamp 1.1.1 (Android)

HTC Evo 3D, Android v2.3.3

I followed all instructions to the letter and clicking DISCOVER on the Devices section has NO EFFECT. It's like the button doesn't work at all.

When I plug my phone into the USB, my phone will show up in DEVICES.

Any ideas? I thought this newest update was supposed to get this feature to finally work?

I have exactly the same issue, except I have an EVO 4g.....

it's like the button doesn't even work.. even if i right click and hit start 'start discovery'.

I have the EVO and my laptop connected on the same wifi..

i have both boxes checked .. the 'enable wireless sync' and 'enable auto-mount'...

I've noticed that the wifi connection can't be made when the phone is connected with the PC even though i have the 'charge only' option activated.

maybe this'll help?

Android 2.3.6 on Nexus S
Winamp 5.622 on Windows 7
USB connects fine. Wifi Sync only worked on first try.

I'm having this issue and none of the solutions I've seen are helpful.

When I first installed Winamp for Android I had no trouble.
Winamp detected my Android device and I was able to transfer several songs to my phone (which transferred very quickly) and I was very impressed.

Unfortunately the very next time I opened Winamp on my computer to transfer some more songs, it would not detect my Android any longer.

I set all my media streaming and file sharing options to allow all devices on home network.
I also tried reinstalling Winamp on my PC and on my phone.
