    A set of mp3 files that I created using Total Recorder and Lame Encoding is
    skipped at consistent times using WMP. However, I can play the same with
    RealPlayer or Total Recorder player.

    I can consistently reproduce the problem.

    Thanks,
    Sethu

  2. Skipping problems typically affect the driver software for the
    soundcard supplied with a wide range of Dell PCs (this has been the
    case for almost a year, they refuse to ship fixed drivers)

    This page has details on the problem

    The indicated solution is to install new drivers, then disable audio
    enhancements using the steps listed.

  4. OK, so did disabling audio enhancements work out ?

    I have tried disabling audio enhancements but with no luck. Some more
    observations that it may be useful

    All these mp3 files were recorded/encoded by someone and not sure what tool
    they used
    1) If I copy the mp3 to another location it works but stops at a different
    time interval
    2) If I rebuild the mp3 file with a tool (say changing the bitrate from 128K
    to 196K and then back again to 128K it works fine).

    I suspect there is some encoding problem.
