Can't listen to an audio CD through comp

By doarme ·
It's a general question. There's a Audio CD (an original one - not burned!) that I can't listen to using my computer, although in my stereo it sounds perfect! When trying to play it using winamp or other programs there are many tracks that sound scratched, bad quality, many jumps and high pitches etc. What can it be?

Can't listen to an audio CD through comp

Part of this can be:

1) IDE CD on the same channel as the hard drive. IDE sucks, primarily because it can't read and write to the same channel simulatneously. You might want to try moving your CD to the secondary channel (in fact, most vendors,HP, Compaq, etc, recommend this setup).

2) The speed of your processor may not be enough. What you're trying to do may tax the processor enough that it can't play a CD and do other tasks.

Best bet is to go SCSI (Go SCSI!) :)

Check your CD-audio cable. This cable connects your CD-ROM to your sound card.Make sure it didn't come loose or disconnected. Also try cleaning your CD-ROM drive, you may have some dirt or dust inside.
