Sound skips like broken cd

    I have copied songs from cds to my computer... Tried
    64kb/s and top quality in WMA format... A few times
    during the songs the sound skips like a broken cd...

    Tried lower accelaration rates, various cds, activated
    error correction, etc... nothing works and it is not
    always at the same time...

    Please help. It seems to be related to either codecs or
    my sound card but how can I be sure. What should I do?

    Thanks for your help.

    Is it only during certain sections, is it only a problem with certain CDs,
    does analog record more cleanly, do you have this problem with songs you get
    *not* from CD... ?

    Thanks for your reply. It seems to be more at the
    beginning of songs (1st 45 secs) but it happened also at
    other moments randomly... I will try again with analog
    and advise, and try getting songs not from cd to test..

    I have tested again with Analog; the sound is really bad
    and I got still one glitch... I like it better in
    digital. I really start to think that the problem is my
    sound card... The glitches occur randomly and for
    various cds. I have tested using "dxdiag" and all tests
    come back successful except one comment with the sound
    feature: memory buffer cannot be hardware-base but only

    Don't know if this is related to my problem.
