    Hey

    that's a good question. have you tried playing other music files? do you have the most recent drivers for your mobo/soundcard?

    hmmm, It's hapened with other files, but when i replay a bad file, it works fine the 2nd time, that's why i have a feeling it has something to do with my system... I dunno... It's my dad's comp, so he could have ****ed around with it without knowing what he did.....

    Is it onboard or a sound card - if so what sound card is it? Is it possible to try a different sound card? Maybe that one is FUBAR or something? But definitely make sure you have the latest drivers for both, the motherboard and sound card.
    Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

    old via boards have latency issues that cause audio/video to often freeze a computer. i bet something along that line is happening. and yes i see that its not a via board but it is something to consider
