Can't change Skin in WMP 10 on MPX220

I am using Windows Mobile Media Player 10 on my MPX220(Asian Rom 3.46), and am trying to use different skins in the media player. Has anybody been successful in doing this for WMP10 - All of the instructions I have come accross on forums seem to be for WMP 9(which required a registry edit), and on 10 Microsoft changed it a bit. According to Microsofts instructions for WMP10 Mobile, you should be able to put a skin on youe MPX220, and then go to the skins option of WMP10 and be able to scroll through all of the skins on your phone - this doesn't work on my phone. The instructions even say to download skins from www.wmplugins.com, but all of these skins are for the desktop version of WMP.

Any help would be appreciated

Copy the skins to \storage\application data\microsoft\media player then you can use the skin chooser in wmp mobile 10 to choose different skins.

wmplugins used to have a couple of mobile skins but they appear to have been lost in a redesign (I emailed ms to ask where the were and my email wasn't read, because I was told to contact my manufacturer). airfagev has a couple and so does surrealnetwork. Sites for ppc and brickstyle smartphones have some too, but they're too big (I've heard you can just change the size of the background image and they work ok).

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately it still isn't working. I have tried downloading 2 different skins for mobile WMP and put them in the directory you said, but when I go to skin chooser, I still only have "default" and can't change it. I tried power cycling the phone, but that wasn't it. Because I am runing an Asian Rom, could there be a registry setting that isn't set right.
