Am I the only one experiencing this problem? I get lots of popping and a loud distortion (kinda fades in and out 2-3 times a second) especially when music is being played. Tried it in both my motherboards and still I have this problem. Got the *latest* drivers if you can call them that. I tried installing the 1.2 patch - nada.
Right now this only happens with older DirectX 6 based games and this one. Everything else sounds fine. I have only the 1/8" speaker jack plugged into the output, and line in and mic are muted. I think it's software specific.
