64 Bit Driver Issues...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / December 3, 2008 3:01 AM PST

64 bit systems frequently have device drivers that are up to par.. As such, new and improved drivers are constantly being created and 64 bit Vista is one that may have a new one that will improve the sound of your music.. Visit the computer manufacturer's website or the sound card's website and see if there is an updated driver for your sound device.. If so, download and install it.

Hope this helps.

It really helps if you clearly describe your problem.

I think you said. "When I try to play Moon River winamp instead plays something else"

I had that problem when Vista corrupted my entire music and picture library. Sometimes I have that problem when nothing is corrupted. Rebooting fixe the latter. The former takes a lot of work to fix by repairing all your music file tags, or a restore if you have a back up.

In reply to: Clarity.

Thx for replies, problem solved...
it seems that usb connected remote hard drive had error because my friend disconnected it unsafe, so i copied all my music again and everything is working.
