Whenever I try to play and MP3 or WAV file, the audio distorts. Audio that is streamed over to the computer, or audio from a CD, play just fine. I was having this problem with XP Serv Pack 2, and I upgraded, and there is still a problem.

I had someone look at the computer. They reinstalled windows, updated the computers drivers, and also tried other soundcards, and had the same problem. All this place told me was that they were stumped.

Thanks for your help!

Hello jerome,

It sounds like the files themselves are damaged. If you have updated the drivers and files play fine from another location the files are most likely damaged. Using a mp3 repair tool may be able to repair the damaged file http://www.s2services.com/mp3.htm
Regards,

Alan.

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. There was some paperwork I was looking for that may help indicate what the problem might be here, and I FINALLY found it.

When I had the computer looked at, I was told that primary IDE channel needs to be in DMA mode. The selection transfer mode is DMA if available, but current transfer mode is PIO mode. I was told that it should not say that.

Thanks again.
