Hi.

When I press play on WinAmp, the song does not play, instead the time skips really quickly from one end to the other with no sound emitted. With a 30sec file it is really quick but with a four minute file you can see the time skipping in groups of around 30 seconds.

What can I do?

Thanks.

It sounds as if you have an incorrect output plugin selected.

Open Winamp, go to Winamp Preferences (Control - P), and select "Plug-ins / Output". You will probably find that "Nullsoft Disk Writer" is selected. Select "Nullsoft waveOut" instead. Then try playing your Mp3's and they should play correctly.

If the above suggestion doesn't solve your problem, post a reply and we will try again.

Note: You only select "Nullsoft Disk Writer" when you are converting an Mp3 file to a Wav file.

If this has been the case, you might also want to search your hard drive for any new WAV files that have been recently created.
If you were also wondering where all your HD space was going, this could well be the answer.
If you find any, I suggest deleting them maybe !
