I have tried doing what you said have put in 1 of my custom post types 
in the array, and it still doesn't work when I am registering my custom 
post type myself with the register_post_type function in my themes 
functions.php file.  See here for the code I am using to setup my custom 
post types http://pastebin.com/YsHtYSiP

The output from get_post_types is still an empty array, the only time 
the array returns anything is when the custom post type has been created 
by the custom-post-type-ui plugin not with the above code.

Here is a copy of my code that is your code you posted earlier with the 
suggested changes to it http://pastebin.com/QBWnTa77

If anyone is able to shine some light on whats going on with the code 
that registers my custom post type, I would be extremely grateful!

Thank you
