    Post mp3 too fast

    I am planning on installing an mp3 player in my car soon, but I have one problem. Whenever I rip a CD to mp3's, the mp3's are always too fast. This was all done using Musicmatch jukebox. I tried using Goldwave and tried recording to .wav first, but I get the same problem, even the .wav files are too fast. I have a PIII 550 with 256MB RAM. I tried it on my sisters PII 350 with musicmatch, and they sound fine. What gives?

    Your computer is to fast.
    you need to use a slower computer and it will work fine.
    Nah, I'm kidding, try another mp3 playing program, if if worse comes to worse, reinstall windows. If I rememeber right, I had that happen once, and I had to reinstall.

    LOL!!!

    You might wanna try taking one of your "fast" mp3s and playing them on another computer. If it plays fine, then you know that the player is what's causing the problem. if it plays fast on that computer too, then you know that it's the ripping software. It's always good to know what the cause of your problem is, before you start ripping apart your system.

    Good Luck,

    Yeah, I'm sorry, I forgot that it could be the ripper. I don't rip my own CD's though, so I don't have much experience with it.

    Okay, I tried CDex, then I put in the extra 32x CD-ROM drive I had, and I had the same problem. I'm going to install some updated drivers for my sound card and see if that helps. If anyone has had similar problems or know what it would be, I'd appreciate it. BTW, I tried one song on our old 133MHz computer and it sounded better.
