Hello,
I have a problem with audio, every once in a while I try to play an audio file and it just goes fastforward and doesn't play, sometimes it just gets stuck after 2 seconds.
I tried to check my audio card (phonic firefly 302) and it's fine, I think the problem is with the controller or something..
Whenever I restart my computer/the audio card the problem is solved, but it keeps on happening..

what should I do?

I too would like to know what program you are using to play your audio files. As for your actual problem, when you are playing these audio files, do you have anything else running in the background or is your media player the only thing running? If you do more than what your computer can handle at a time, songs will skip and pause when played.

That's all I can suggest.

I wrote this before, I tried it on many players and it did the same thing, I tried it on:
Winamp, windows media player, media player classic, songbird, VLC, Real player, Total video player.
Same problem for every single player, so it's not the player, it's something with the windows system I guess... help?

hello ,

can you just check whether the size of file you are trying to play is 1 Kb or not . and second thing can you tell us whether the sound driver you have installed is compatible or not . if possible provide some information about the motherboard model and sound driver .

thanks

They are bigger than 1 kb and they have been played before, it's just that sometimes it simply doesn't make any sound.
it even did it a couple of times in the middle of the song, and no, there is no problem with the song.
Let's say i'm listening to Beatles - Let it be, I've listened to the exact same song a 1,000 times, but every now and then it the computer simply mutes and I can't here it, sometimes through the whole song, sometimes in the middle.
it's not a problem with the song (happens on every sound when it mutes)
it's not a problem with the player (tried every single player out there)
it's not a problem with the sound card (phonic firefly 302, tried it on linux, works perfectly without an occasional mute)
it's some kind of problem with the driver or audio device manager or what-not in windows, I have to mention that I also have an internal soundcard and it might be problematic for windows to realize that I don't want it to use the internal soundcard but the external one...?

Have you disabled the integrated soundcard in your BIOS so that windows only sees the add-on sound card?
