Whenever I play and audio file (ie MP3) with VLC player or WMP, I have no problems. However, when I try any type of audio/video file (ie AVI, MPG) the sound is suddenly garbled or distorted (but still understandable). I'm running XP and had a PCI Sound Blaster Live card. I've since removed it and tried the audio through the onboard sound card, but with the same problems. I've tried updating drivers (both manually and through Windows Update) and installing several codecs for WMP, but still no luck. Since it is happening with both media players and both sound cards and all of my software appears to be up to date and running with out any issues, I'm kind of stuck.
Any ideas? I have a feeling I'm missing something simple. Please help!!!!
