    Is there anything else that needs to be installed besides MediaCar...I couldn't find this file:

    "with some updates for the brushed metal skin of Febsperenza : http://www.media-car.fr.st/DOWNLOAD...te_for_V1.9.zip"

    but I did get the brushed metal skin thats about 12MB...are these two files the same?
    Don't confuse the issue by adding other skin files! Does it work with the default skin? If not have you done what gutterslide did?

    Doesn't work with default skin either, I did add the microsoft files that gutterslide suggested, twice even!

    i installed SP1 with the direct9 updates but wouldnt think that'd be a problem. i created a user account w/ admin priviledges, should I just use the regular admin? any other suggestions?

    i'll retry today and post.

    i think my problems all started because of a low-severity virus and some browser hijackers. whether or not they are directly responsible or not remains to be seen. but just for the sake of safety. download and run HijackThis. scan, save the log, then copy and paste the log file here. don't check or fix anything.

    Looks like something played with the scripting...virus or anti-virus?

    OK, so I found the culprit, it's my M-Audio USB 7.1 soundcard. =(

    I switched over to the internal 2.0 soundcard and no crashes! Unfortunately everyone here recommends a USB soundcard for better sound...did those of you get any MediaCar crashes afterwards?

    So I either gotta find a new soundcard (for 4.1 sound) or stick w/ the internal one, eeek!

    Does your USB sound now work with Win 2000? Media Car no longer crashes?

    hmm...think I may have reduced the amount of crashes by using compatibility mode on Media Car through Win XP. I used Windows 2000 compatibility on Media Car and now it seems to work much smoother with fewer crashes, w00t!

    compability mode didn't work for me. Yes using win 2000 solved it perfect. But I would prefer Win XP so I'm trying my best (thinking of a change to Frodoplayer). Have no better solution
