I bought a new Dell Dimension 3000 last weekend and added the hard drive from my old Dell to it. The problem is, all of the mp3 files on that old hard drive aren't playing right. They're choppy and have gaps in the music every now and then.
The installation seemed flawless. Actually, when I rebooted my computer after installing it, it recognized the 2nd HD immediately, and I didn't need to go into BIOS or anything. Maybe this is where my problem is? I thought it seemed a bit too easy but am not sure what to do.
Thanks in advance.
