sound is not workin properly

By sambhe ·
Guys ,
I have dual boot on my system with win 2k and wind XP with all in NTFS. I just loaded creative vibra 128 bit sound card. In XP eveerything is working properly but in WIn 2k , when i play mp3s or anyother music files from CD ROM it gives distortion (like repeating or skipping. like ohh rain is fafafafafa lling ) every say one min or half a min. WHat can be the problem. The same music file if i copy on hard disk and run it plays good. In XP CD ROM is not giving any such problem. Shoould iReinstall win2k. is it installation problem?

1. Check your IDE bus master drivers for the W2K installation. Make sure they are up to date and working properly.

2. What media player are you using? Is it using the Audio cable from the CD, or the digital data from the IDE cable? This will help you track down the cause.

If your media player is Windows Media Player, it does use the digital data, and not the audio.

If updating the IDE driver doesn't help, try re-installing the media player.

If you are attempting to use the same install of the media player in both OSs, that may be part of your problem also.
