Way To Launch Winamp When A USB Device Is Connected, Such as an iPod

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if there was a setting either in Windows or in Winamp that would allow you upon plugging in a specific USB device that this would trigger Winamp to launch automatically?

For example, if you have iTunes installed, when you plug in an iPod, Windows automatically can launch iTunes when it is detected.

Is there any way to get Winamp to do the same thing with a device, such as an iPod?

Not sure if Winamp has a setting I have overlooked or if Windows has the ability to do this.
I know Windows has an "AutoPlay" feature which recognizes when a USB device is attached to your computer but I have not had any success with it (at the moment though iPod does not show up under the "Devices" category in AutoPlay list, not sure if that matters).

General Info:
Windows 7 Professional (64Bit)
I had iTunes installed but I have uninstalled it.
My iPod does show up in Winamp and seems to work fine.

Thank You
