    Angry ready to give up

    I've really had it with my whole MP3car idea....

    build everything in my car yesterday, booted a played a song... well almost. Winamp quits on me the whole time.. It doesn't lock winamp, winamp just quits playing. In the middle of a song "TRTRTRTRTRTRTRTR" when I push the winamp-stop-button the TRTR stops, but no way in hell that winamp will play a song again. I have to reboot and than I can play half a song again.

    I'm used to windows bugging, so I reinstalled win98 downloaded latest version of winamp and installed this 2, same problemm.

    What I really don't get is that about 2 weeks ago I had my system playing in my car for about 8 hours straight, while displaying AVS, to see if my PS was stable enough...

    brrrrr.................

    maybe you guys have any idea how to solve my problems?

    I had this problem appear when I upgraded to Winamp 2.80 using the Crossfading DirectX output plugin that comes with the Winamp install. It would just stop for no reason. Using an older version of Winamp (2.72 I think) works fine, and if I use the Waveout output instead if DX, it's fine.

    It's a shame, because the crossfading works really well otherwise - i only have problems on the car player - on any of my other computers it plays fine.

    Just tried with a "normal" creative PCI64 soundcard, winamp will run fine, but now I have terrible groundloop noise, which I don't have with the onboard soundcard cmi8738 (or something)

    It's homemade, but why would this be the problem? the PC keeps on going strong, it's just winamp that's bugging... well actually it seems to be the onboard soundcard

    believe me, i have seen it all....try using a regular psu + inverter to see....
    A slight distruption on the voltage/amp will cause strange problems

    hm so winamp works fine, but I haven't solved my ground loop problem...
    I have 3 outputs : front l/r, rear l/r, center/subwoofer. the amp attached to the front has almost no noise at all, but the other amps are terrible, I have them (my amps) all connected to the same grounding point in my car, why has one no problem with groundloop and the others not?

    any ideas?

    Are they all the same or different brands?

    I have owned a few cheapie amps over the years that can suffer from awful ground noise where quality ones on the same cable dont.

    If you really cant sort it get an isolator for a few $ which will solve the problem.

    i read this really quick.. but try to ground your computer to the same ground as your amps. It might help a bit.
