I bought myself a Soundblaster Digital 5.1 card today from my local dixons, but have had troubles playing MP3's through media player, and WAV files in general. MP3's start off normal, then suddenly slow down, like you were altering a record from 45 to 33 (or whatever speeds records run at!!) As for WAV files, 2 seconds of sound are usually cut off the end of the file.
I have Win 98SE, AMD 2000xp, 256DDR. Does anyone have any ideas at all?? Help is much appreciated.
Yeah, first thing i did. The new sound card has now totally ruined my system now anyway. In the process of backing up info. and reformattin hard drive. Damn you creative!!! I've had a 3 hour exam today, can u not spare me from this eternal turmoil!!!!
I don't even know why i bought the damned card. My onboard sound was doing the job alright in retrospect. I guess when you build your own system, something is gonna give eventually.
The drivers and all the software installed with the card aren't showing up in the add/remove programs options. And i cannot find a manual uninstall option The only way to fix it is to edit the registry, and i'd feeler a lot more confident just going for a clean install and starting again.
