Playback delays for split second near the end of a song

    Just got new 3.3ghz pc with vista and media player 11. When I am playing
    mp3s and wma songs I get a very short delay in playback when the song is
    almost finished. I don't have any effects like crossfade on. It can't be the
    strain on system resources as it occurs with no other programs running. It is
    so annoying that I will have to look for another media player if I can't find
    a solution.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dale,

    Appreciate the reply. I followed the links, downloaded the driver but when I
    was trying to install all I kept getting was "Device Object not present,
    restart the system and run setup again." Think the drivers are maybe
    incompatible with my system

  4. Try following the directions that were right after the download link:

    Possible workaround if audio issues are unresolved after installing the new

    * Click Start- Control Panel- Sound
    * Right click on the Speaker/Headphones icon and choose properties
    * Click on the "enhancements" tab
    * Select the "Disable all enhancements" check box
    * When finished, restart the PC

    Does that help?

    Disabling enhancements seems to have done the trick. I wasn't aware I had any
    enhancements turned on. Thanks ever so much Mike that's great and thanks to
    Dale too.

    best wishes
