Strange sound problem

I had a couple of amusing (though not very helpful! ;0)) replies from the
two Dons when I first posted this on 2nd July. However, the problem persists
and on approach to Corfu in the PMDG 737-700 last night I put the gear down
and visually it went down and stayed there. The sound file, on the other
hand, repeated some 6 or 7 times! Why? It also happens on the excellent
Project F (can't put the full name, my news server censors it!) 100 and 70.
Why? And why only the gear sound? Why don't other sounds keep repeating? Am
I the only one on the NG to experience this? Is this really such a unique
fault? If so I'll put it on E Bay!

Seriously, any suggestions as to cause or cure would be appreciated. Thanks.
:0))

At what speed are you putting down the gear?

Lower than the safe maximum speed but I don't see what the connection is. As
I said, this is a sound problem - visually the gear goes down and stays
down. I even get "three greens" in the cockpit. It's just that the sound
keeps repeating.
