Sound is skipping...

I have just purchased a second sound card (4.1 digital Soundblaster) and am running the onboard sound and the Sound blaster at the same time..

When i play music the sound jogs and skips beats through the 4.1 Soundblaster i can't understand why, i have updated the drivers.
The primary Sound device is the onboard sound but i need the second sound card for a certain program..

  1. Probably some conflicting hardware/drivers etc. Have you tried each one separately?

  2. just to make sure.... you tried more then one mp3 or whatever right? its just like mp3's that are skipping or overall every sound skips on the system?

  3. Well basically i have this dJ mixing program which uses the speakers for the main music, and the headphones to preview the next song.. This works fine now but only when i stop using anyother program like MSN or Mirc which makes sounds.
    With them open it makes the music jog from both sound devices. I am pleased i have it sorted but however this surely means its a simple bug that can be fixed.
    The sound jogs in all programs not just this dJ Mixing program.

    Thanks for replies.
