Winamp Device Manager

Posted : admin On 1/29/2022

A leaked version of Winamp 5.8 recently spread over the Internet. Consequently, we have decided to make this new version available to you, revised by us. We therefore recommend that you download this version rather than any other as we guarantee it is safe for you to use. This version is not an ongoing project but be sure that we are currently. Winamp Pro is a program that allows you to listen, watch and manage music, video, podcasts and Internet radio on your desktop and devices.

Hi all sansa users (particularily express users, where I remember this problem orginating from).

This is in regards to using Winamp and your Sansa Express (or any other Sansa device).

First off, I love Winamp, but I think Winamp has a very confusing media managment when it comes to using media library with portable devices (IMO). not only do you have a playlist builder, which acted as your music library back when media library was not part of winamp. Now, with the inclusion of media library, you have literally two seperate media organizer / library usage / player / whatever you want to call it. I guess it’s winamp’s way of intergrating it’s other features and organizing it all, but I still find it annoying and unnecessary.

anyways, the issue is when you connect your Sansa Express (and I think maybe the clip and other Sansa products), winamp will auto terminate / crash. while the player is pluged in, if you open a song that will auto open winamp to play it, winamp will probably play the file for a few secs and than auto close again. well here is a work around to it.

Uninstall “Nullsoft Portable Music Player Support” in the media library plugins and winamp should be fine to play with while a device is connect. you may also uninstall any related or all plugins in the portables section of plugin too.

NOTE: this removes all winamp abilities and support to manage devices with media library. so if you were hoping to sync / transfer music using winamp to you portable device, you will not be able to so after you uninstall this plugin.

If your a power user that doesn’t rely on media organizing programs, than this fix would be good for you, as you can finially preview music with winamp before you drag n drop them into your sansa device.
