Grttz,


This buttons have primary function to play CD when your notebook is turned off. But you can try to find some Winamp plugin from http://www.winamp.com/plugins/.

I'm fairly sure that the media keys will control the computer's default media player. Just set Winamp as the default player.

If that doesn't work, check for settings for the media keys as part of the software - it may be included in the Control Panel under "Keyboard Settings"

As an afterthought, you might also want to check the manufacturer's website to see if there are updated keyboard drivers.

I once had a logitech multimedia keyboard that required a driver update to function with WinAmp
