    When I play almost half of the MP3s I download through Kazaa, they will play for about 10 secs or so and then I hear nothing. I play them in Windows MEdia player 9, the visuals look as though sound should be coming out, but i hear nothing. and some songs are fine.. I have Win XP Home and this problem started after I formatted my comp and put XP back on.. Problem also occurrs if i play them in Kazaa

    Any ideas

    thanks in advance

    that's wierd. I randomly picked like 5 newer songs jut to test it out and none of them were duds. I guess it's just luck of the draw for now or something. Oh well. Newsgroups keeping me plenty busy :)

    I have about 25 mp3 groups in my favorites. I just go down each one looking for stuff.
