Audigy owners read

If you have an Audigy sound card, and you get skipping or have other general problems with any of the directsound plugins, here is how you fix it....

Start>Run and type "dxdiag" without the quotes
go to the Sound tab
reduce directsound acceleration - which is the slider

I had to reduce it to "Basic" but now I have absolutely no problems with any directsound plugins. I also didn't notice any cpu hit by doing this, at least while playing Winamp. I didn't test any games, so maybe you might want to bump acceleration back up to play games and reduce it to play winamp. If you have any sound related issues while playing games then definitely reduce the acceleration. Several of us have reported this issue on Creative's newsgroup server so I can only hope someone is listening and it gets fixed in a future driver release.

I hope this helps someone out there!
