When I paly an MP3 file it is severely distorted though the computer plays wave files and cd's with no problem.
I am using Windows media player but have also tried Audacity and VLC media player. I usually play them from a memory stick but have also copied to hard drive with the same results.
The same mp3's on the same memory stick play perfectly OK on 3 other computers that I have tried.
Computer is a Sony Vaio PCG-0G1M with integrated VIA AC97 audio. Updated to latest drivers, still the same. Windows XP home. Plenty of hard disk space, 256 MB ram.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks for the reply but have now managed to fix it so didn't need to get any other codecs.
Found that by changing the Sound playback device in Windows Media Player options from Default to AC97 the problem dissapeared even though Sound playback device in Control panel was set to AC97 default. Very strange.
Thanks again.
