    Unhappy Weird crackeling noise every 38 seconds MP3 playback

    Hi all. I just switched out my laptop setup for an Epia M10000, USB SB Audigy 2NX & an Opus 150 and I am having a weird crackeling noise that happens nearly every 38 seconds almost to the second. It's a small collection of slight popping and crackeling noises.
    Any ideas?

    It happens with all files played through the MP3 interface of MediaCar as well as through WMP. Same with 128 bit MP3's AND with Monkey's Audio lossless files.
    I have read some threads about issues with CPU usage with the USB Audigy but that would not be a concern unless it relates to my issue.

    Info: Brand new MB, ram, Opus PS. Latest drivers and firmware for Audigy.
    Happens with car of but acc on to power Opus.
    BU-303 GPS(USB), Linksys Wireless G USB, Lilliput 7" touchscreen, Powermate volume control USB, XMPCR w/ optical mod connected to Audigy with optical digital cable
    Audigy out connects directly to 5 channel amp using single set of RCA patch cables.

    Thanks!

    try removing the wireless and then the gps, see if these have any effect.

    Update: Correction, the noise does not appear when MP3's are played through WMP so I am thinking some sort of issue with Mediacar installation. Not sure how though.

    Additional Update: Problem also appears playing a file with Winamp directly as well as through Medicar which is my frontend.

    seems like a problem with WinAmp. Why are you using mediacar? Road runner is so much faster....

    I did not think RR was up to speed on all of the features of MediaCar. It looked like there were many issues still unresolved so I figured I would wait it out a bit and try it when things had calmed down.

    Either way, RoadRunner and MediaCar both are just WinAmp frontends, so the problem would persist even if you switched.

    Sounds like maybe a bad WinAmp install. Try grabbing the last 2.9x release from Download.Com and see if that fixes it.

    And just so you know, RR has TONS more features than MediaCar, thanks to Guino. Not to mention it's updated almost every other day, so bugs don't tend to last long before getting squished.

    Problem solved. I reloaded and reconfigured MediaCar and all set so something was kluged up.

    I think I'll have to spend some time with RR (: Sounds promising.


    Thanks all!
