Yesterday I decided to put one of my Linux box into dual boot with XP so that I can play some SF3(StarForce 3.x) protected games. I wanted better sound than onboard so my old spare SB Live! 5.1 Digital was installed.
I've always been using Winamp + !mpg_123 + out_asio to listen to music on my X-FI and the results are great. I know Live(EMU10K1) is capable of ASIO and there is a 3rd party driver called kX project for it. I tried kX project before and it was unstable(don't know if it's any better now), so I've gone with the latest Creative driver this time. In order to enable ASIO with Creative driver, I installed ASIO4ALL v2.8. Now when I try to play any mp3 in winamp, I get a buzzing noise in the background. I've been playing with the settings in ASIO4ALL control panel (changing latency, buffer sample number, enable/disable resamling 44.1 <-> 48), but the problem remains. Could someone please help me to find out what I'm doing wrong here? Is this a hardware or driver issue?
The spec of this PC is listed as "Moss" in my sig. Thanks in advance.
