View Full Version : ??? about Sound and Floppy Drive
06-19-2000, 02:54 PM
Two Questions: I don't get any sound out of Winamp on Win2K or MediaPlayer but I do off of my CDrom. When I start winamp it will play at a low level for a few seconds but when I try and turn the volume up it shuts off and I can't get it back until I reboot. I have an MX 300 sound card and I checked Win2K compatability and it said it was supported. What's wrong??? My other question is that my floppy drive still doesn't work and I was wondering if I should break the whole system back down and rebuild it to see if I skipped anything. It's not the drive or the connector and I hope it's not the mobo(hopefully human error-good chance). Thanks for any info

i really don't know what else to tell you - check for the latest drivers for all components involved, check internal connections. best of luck!
I haven't had any problems with my floppy drive in win2000. However I have problems with sound from my SBLive X-Gamer. The music from the cd-rom lately is distorted. Wav files are super loud compared to other files (like midi).
First go to volume control and adjust your settings. Start menu-->Programs-->Accessories-->Entertainment-->Volume Control
Also do windows update for the latst patches from Micro$oft.
Aureal has beta win2000 drivers out.
Aureal drivers download sites:
<A href="http://support.aureal.com/soundcards/index.htm" target="_new">Aureal download site</a>
<A href="http://www.vortexofsound.com/drivers/drivers.htm" target="_new">Vortex of Sound</a>
both these sites have faq's. So look around.
Unfortunately Aureal is very unlikely to ever get back on its feet now going by what <A href="http://www.avault.com/news/displaynews.asp?story=6162000-131033" target="_new">Avault just recently revealed in a news item.</a> http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif
