When I put a music cd in my computer, it opens up and plays in Windows Media.  I want to change the default to Winamp.  Can anyone help me?

in your winamp file types setup select associate extension name cda. Underneath the list of the file extension, check associate with audio cd.

From your media player as well, uncheck the audio cd player file association.

This will do the trick
