I had provided all the necessary info before, in December. I admit that I did not do it again, so here we are: WinXP Home,
emachines T2885. HD about 28GB left, 512MB memory,LITE-ON LTR 48327S CD-ROM (and, I guess recorder). Winamp5.24 Pro records flawlessly. Winamp5.32 PRO records only 3-19 sec. segments of songs. This has been verified after Clean Install (and new download). The first recording after clean install appeared to have worked ok in testing mode, but actual recording made a mess.
I am presently using v.5.24 Pro. I had been told that there had been an update of the recording software, which may have been incompatible with my hardware. Other than that I received no clue. I thought that v.5.30 or 5.31 may behave differently.
Sorry about my username, but it represents what has been going on in the past six weeks.
By the way, I was, finally, able to install Music Match.
Any other software, including Winamp5.24 Pro is working perfectly. Win5.32 Pro works fine in every way, except recordong. Just a crazy idea. Any way to install 5.32, but use the recording part of 5.24, which I can back up?
