3 post on the forum about the same subject every time it posts it skips! On a serious note have you upgraded or reinstalled your drivers?

Thanks for noticing that I am a newby rolli59 and yes I have reinstalled and upgraded to new drivers. Is there anything else that I may have overlooked?

By the way welcome.
It is hard to tell but where you installing something new when it happened? That is any software or hardware changes just before it started.

Hey there rolli59. A couple of years ago I started noticing, after downloading songs from iTunes, that songs began to skip alot. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes thinking this would cure the problem, it didn't. Then I began to hear the skipping when ever I would play Pandora or playbacks on windows media player. I thought, this is real serious, thats when I reinstalled and upgraded my drivers but to no avail.

It's usually indicates more then one audio device in use.
In Win7 right click the volume icon
select Volume Control Options
Choose the preferred device and uncheck the others.
Have a good look in playback devices as well.
You only need one.

Hi davcon, I'm going to use the 'default recording device' and the speaker as the 'sound device' and listen to what happens. Thanks for your input and I will, get back to you on the outcome. Dorsey

    Hi davcon, I did say I would get back to you, well so far your diagnosis seem to be correct. I did have several sound devices running at the same time so, I chose the preferred device unchecked the others and I have not heard any skipping. If anything does change, you'll be the first to know. Thanks bunches!
