Wav file issues

what kind of program (player) are you using to play the files? where are you getting your mp3's and wav's? it might be the site that you are downloading from a bad site. maybe your computer does not have enough memory for you to listen to mp3's andwav's while running another program, you may have to close all other programs to listen to them without the choppiness if you don't have enough memory.

you didn't give info enough. what are your pc resources? anyway, playing mpegs is really a resource-eating action... to hear them well you need at least P133MMX with 16Mb RAM.

One thing is how much ram do you have. MP3s and Mpegs are system hogs big time. The software you use will make a difference as well. The Mp3s are buffered before they start to play. The ampunt of available ram you have will reflect on how much buffering can be performed prior to the start of the music. Of course the same applies to an Mpeg file. How much of the video can be buffered prior to starting the actual video. I would try to limit what you have running when attempting to play thefiles and or add additional ram to relieve the overhead.

Start closing other applications running in the background!
Firts start closing application that resides on the task bar, next to your system clock on the lower rught corner.
Second press control-alt-delete and start closing application you do notneed. In Win95/98 environment, you can close anything except explorer, if you close that your system will reboot as that is the shell of the operating system.

After closing unnecessary programs, open Control Panel/Multimedia. On the Audio tab under Playback, click Advanced. Try changing the sampling rate or quality up or down. This could be too high causing the system to over-extent itself or too low to properly playback .wav or mp3's.
