How do I change file type description?

I'm on Windows XP.

I've changed it in Tools > Folder Options > File Types, but I've got programs (Winamp, UltraISO) associated with multiple file types (MP3 and .wav, ISO and .nrg). So when I change the description for MP3, the description for .wav changes to the same thing.

That's not what I'm looking to do.



All of those files open in Winamp. But only one is a .wav file.

If I go to Tools > Folder Options > File Types > Advanced and change the description for .mp3 extensions to MP3, the description changes for all files associated with Winamp (including .wav files).
