View Full Version : Sound problems



26-07-2000, 11:40 PM
I continue to have problems with wave and MP3 files. When I try and play wave files with Winamp I get the message: could not create direct sound object.
When I click on wave files Media player opens with the message: Cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding. However Midi files play fine.

Using the DirectX diagnostic tool under the Music Tab and selecting Microsoft synthesizer:
DirectMusic test results: Failure at step 6 (Activating the IDirectMusicPort): HRESULT = 0x8878000a (The request failed because DirectSound resources, such as the priority level, were already in use by another caller.)

Under the Sound Tab:
DirectSound test results: Failure at step 3 (DirectSoundCreate): HRESULT = 0x8878000a (The request failed because DirectSound resources, such as the priority level, were already in use by another caller.)

Who can put me on the right track?
