    When changing tracks in windows media player 11 a message comes up on the
    bottom left of the player saying media changing, and it takes about ten
    seconds to change tracks. Can you make it so there's no delay between tracks
    when you skip them? If so how?

    this can be caused by many things
    maybe its becuase the amount of ram u have? the cpu u have?
    is your music on a cd? an external drive?
    wat's the speed or your cd-rom? or dvd-rom?
    wat usb u using? 1.1? 2.0?
    i mean sometimes this is just not a "problem".

    i face the same problem too.
    i just bought this XPS M1210 Dell laptop.
    [ Processor : Intel(R) Core (TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz
    Memory : 2046 MB
    System type : 32-bit OS ]

    whenever i browse a music file or sometimes a video file too, i will need to
    wait for around 10-13 seconds before it starts playing it. and whenever the
    track reaches its end, it will be lagging, thus creating a real discomfort to
    enjoy my new laptop :(

    What sound card do you have? Is there a driver update available?
    If you turn off Enhancements on the sound card, does that fix it up?

    From my FAQ... :

    If your sound card is crackling or having audio glitching (especially
    towards the end of tracks!), right-click on the Speaker icon in the system
    tray, select Playback Devices, right-click Speakers in that new dialog, go
    to Properties, then go to Enhancements - choose "Disable All Enhancements"
    and you should be fixed up. If this does fix you up, check with your sound
    card vendor - they should not be having this problem. Dell/Sigmatel do have
    a driver update which may help.

    i forgot to say something
    sometimes the type of the media u playing can cause the problem too
    such as:
    if you try to play a .wma file in WMP 11, the visualization will look laggy

    Just bought a new Dell laptop with Vista Home Premium. I was having delays
    in starting songs and crackling at the end of them. Followed the advice
    from Zach D and the difference is amazing. No problems any more, this is
    how I expected it to work!
    Steve Hawker, May 12, 2007

  9. You expected and accept disabling features is "good"?

    Truly amazing how Microsoft can brainwash their customers and some
    even seem to like it. While I'm not a fan of adding sound
    "enhancements" from your audio card or build in audio, the point is
    you should be able to if you want to. Damn funny that Microsoft's
    standard answer when some of their junk doesn't work is to turn off or
    disable something else, just so their crap can work.

    This is NOT a Microsoft problem -- it is a SigmaTel problem, they write the

    This does not happen with Creative nor Realtek.
    Cal Bear '66, May 12, 2007
  11. Fanboys NEVER assign Microsoft blame for anything. I've noticed.

    Take Zach's posts as an example. All this MS employee ever does is
    keep telling people to turn off, disable or remove third party filters
    or codecs in order to get the pile of crap Media Player or Movie Maker
    to stumble along. That's hardly a solution. Smarter people understand
    that if you have to remove third party anything to get core elements
    of the operating system to work, then something is wrong with the
    operating system itself. Duh!

    I notice you snipped the comment that Creative and Realtek drivers do not have
    this problem.

    And, please, lay off Zach! He is one of the most helpful and courteous posters
    in this newsgroups. Many people have resolved their issues with his gracious

    You expect Windows Movie Maker, DVD Maker, and Media Player to be professional
    quality and fully featured programs. They are basic programs.

    I, for one, have had NO problems with any of these programs that were not very
    easily solved.

    Your constant whining and kvetching are really, really boring.
    Cal Bear '66, May 12, 2007
  13. That is PROPER newsgroup etiquette. Not surprised you don't know to
    remove what you aren't commenting on is the RIGHT way to post.
    In your opinion. To me, he's just a broken record. Anybody can "fix" a
    problem if the cure is to keep saying turn some third party codec off
    or remove it. In fact, that's a cop out.
    See above. Not my idea of "fixing".
    Hardly. I do expect them to work as advertised. That's wishful
    thinking at best. Microsoft should keep it's nose out of anything to
    do with graphics. They don't have a clue what they're doing.
    Oh, the old I don't have problems, so the other guy must be nuts
    So grow some brains and skip my posts if you can't handle the truth
    and I so easily bug you. ADULTS would simply skip posters they don't
    like. Children whine.

    PROPER ETIQUETTE that TOTALLY contradicts your false assumption and crazed
    delusion that Microsoft is responsible for SigmaTel's faulty drivers?

    Well if it solves the problem, then it is FIXED. Most people with these problems
    have absolutly NO idea how to solve their problems, and if the solution is
    simple, so much the better.

    They DO work as advertised here. My, my, my you are paranoid, aren't you? If you
    don't like them, don't use them. Too simple for you, yes?

    Oh, dear little boy! So, so immature! So irrational!
    Ease off on the self-congratulatory fantasies.
    And with all YOUR whining, then you do admit that you are a child?
    Cal Bear '66, May 13, 2007
  15. You seem to be a raving NUT case. I made no such assumptions. How long
    have you been delusional? Are you on meds? Maybe you should be.
    Leaving the lights turned off when the bulbs are burned out isn't
    fixing the problem, expect maybe for simpletons like you. Not
    surprising you don't see things clearly.
    Hint: Zach DON'T "fix" problems! He simply offeres how to restore
    Vista to a default state which often leaves third party software
    broken or malfunctioning. It is amazing to me some people will gladly
    disable third party software or hardware they bought simply because
    Vista is too dumb to work with it. Mind boggling but sadly very

    Likely because your one of the legions of users that are happy with
    Mickey Mouse software. Soory, I'm not.
    For you they work. My guess, you're simply too dumb to know what
    "work" really means. I'm a PROFESSIOONAL in the area of video editing
    and I'm telling you flat out that DVD Maker, Movie Maker and Media
    Player are absolute crap and riddled with all kinds of bugs, flaws and
    suffer from poor design. Believe me or not, your choice. That doesn't
    change the fact that they are crap and are considered as such by just
    about every other professional you would ask.
    You're the one obviously bent out of shape, that again, can't skip
    posts that obviously bug you. So many children post to groups like
    this. You're one of that loser's group obviously.

    Too, too silly and immature to deserve a rational response!
    Zach HELPS! You RANT! You insult! You slur! You cry like a baby!

    P.S. Another poster found that Vegas was a total disaster on his system!

    Yeah, he's not actually trying to make any sense. Don't worry about it. I
    appreciate you trying to help him, but he's a troll. Oh well. The best
    thing *I* can do here is just to help get people's systems working. It's
    hard to argue with success. =)

    (The counterresponse of course being Well You Don't Always, but I've never
    claimed to be any troubleshooting god, just someone making an honest effort.
    If he can build a better success record, I'd be impressed - but then again,
    it's my impression that he's just here to amuse himself by picking on the
    positive efforts of others. And that's sad and boring and why I killfiled

    Anyways, happy Mother's Day. =)

    zachd [MSFT], May 13, 2007
  18. YOU don't know how to make a rational response. Afterall, it is YOU
    that is ranting and raving. What is it, three times already in the
    same thread? Geez man, grow up!

    People have a right to know there are WAY BETTER video editing and
    graphic tools then the broken junk Microsoft dumps on a unsuspecting

    Obviously some prefer to group around in the darkness using clumsy
    poorly designed software instead of learning the RIGHT way.

    So be it.

    Obviously you are SEVERAL cards short of a full deck!

    Add a messianic complex to your list of problems!

    Oh, please lead us out of the darkness, dear Master!

    (And the real lunatic is always the one that says ONLY HE is not the lunatic.)

    Schreech on, pee wee!
