Hi Fox1, welcome to BC.
It's most likely buffering do to a slow connection. Are you on dial-up?

I agree with HitSquad, maybe the problem is your speed of connecting to internet. I think you can download the whole file first, then listen to it.

What speeds do you have? Go to www.speedtest.net and run a speedtest and post what you found there overhere..

I took your advise, and ran speed test
it showed 74 kbp/s, 235 kbp/s.
I really do not know what that means?

Can you offer any ideas?
Thanks

The download is more or less ok than. What about your PC specs?
Memory and CPU specs? What kind of anti-virus are you running?Any other real time protection programs?Could also be that a thorough clean up of your computer is necessary. Please post the requested spec and we take it from there.
