Player seems to miss out alternate filenames on Win XP

I have a problem trying to send a playlist to a player.
I have a playlist in a field (Output) and use the PlayStopped message to
move down this field, loading the next filename each time. Unfortunately,
every alternate one is missed.
if PlayingFromList = "false" then
set the backgroundcolor of graphic "Indicator" to red # not use a
put NowPlaying+1 into NowPlaying #NowPlaying starts at 0
wait for 500 milliseconds
#answer NowPlaying & " " & line NowPlaying of field "Output" with "OK"
if line NowPlaying of field "Output" = "" then
set the backgroundcolor of graphic "Indicator" to red
put "c:/player/Playlist/" & line NowPlaying of field "Output" into field
set the filename of player "Player1" to field "FilePlaying"
set the currentTime of player "Player1" to 0
#wait for 200 milliseconds
#answer the filename of player "Player1" with "OK"
start player "Player1"
Please excuse the scripting.. I'm only a hobbyist!
The problem is that line 1 plays fine, but when line 2 (of field) filename
is sent to the player it does not acknowledge it (verified by reading it
back into an answer message - it seems to be empty). Presumably after
starting the player with no apparent filename, it immediately sends a player
stopped again so moves onto line 3. Curiously, this line now works, but the
same happens again at line 4 of field "Output". There should be no other
handlers involved (that I have created)
I am using Windows XP. and Rev 2.1. QT is installed.
