Winamp doesn't detect iPod

Hello. The problem I am having is, that my mother wants to use winamp to manage her iPod, because the new iTunes really sucks, but for some reason winamp doesn't detect the iPod. The problem is, it DOES detect my iPod. I also tried it on another computer, but nothing works, it just doesn't detect it. This in only a problem with winamp, because Windows does detect it, and I can also use other sotware (Like sharePod) and it detects the iPod perfectly.

I am using an iPod nano 4th generation, and my mother uses an iPod nano 5th generation, both of them with 8GB.
Things that did NOT work:
- Resetting the iPod
- using another computer
- deactivating and reactivating 'use as disk' option
- deactivating / activating manually managing the music

Thank you in advance for any help

Can I manage my portable music devices & players with Winamp 5?

"Winamp 5 seamlessly integrates support for iPod (Shuffle, Mini, Video, Nano (1-4G only, not 5th/6th gen) & Classic models, but currently NOT Touch or iPhone models)."


Alas, we don't support any of the newer models (Nano 5/6G, Touch, iPhone).
There's no sdk for developers available from Apple.

We've had support working a couple of times before in the past (via reverse engineering!),
but Apple released updated firmware within a matter of days which broke it again, so we just gave up in the end.

We now concentrate mostly on Android instead :-)

theres a recent thread where someone describes using winamp and media monkey together to get their music sync'd.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
