Hello FuryOfTheBlind,

I have 3 words for you.... Update, update, update

The recommended DirectX version for Winamp3 is at least 8.1. The latest version of DirectX is 9.0b.

Earlier version of DirectX...
DirectX 8.1 for Win98 or WinME
DirectX 8.1 for Win2000

Go to your sound card's web site for updates for the sound driver. If you have a on board sound chip go to the web site of your computer provider or the manufacturer of the motherboard.

Download the Winamp3 update patch and install it while Winamp is not running.

Internationalization support is experimental and buggy. I suggested that you reinstall WA3 without Int. Support. Use the uninstall/reinstall the procedure outlined in the following thread.

Some helpful reading...

If the above suggestions don't resolve the problem, you might want to try Classic Winamp 2. The latest version is 2.91.

I am leaving for vacation. So I would like to let you know I will not be making any more replies until some time next week. If anyone else would like to step in help please do so.

Good Luck!

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
