    I've had this weird problem for a while now, actually it was with me for a while and went away???then just recently came back again. When I edit video in Adobe Premiere 6 the audio over time loses sync and slowly gets more and more out of sync. I have a Creative sound blaster live card and when I had the problem before (it just sort of starting happening one day) I couldn't figure it out for a while. I uninstalled, reinstalled drivers for the sound card but nothin. Finally I cahnged the PCI slot of the card and it seemed to fix the problem for he time being. I guess it was an IRQ issue.

    Anyhow, it has been fine for the last few months now then all of a sudden the audio drift has come back!? THe changing of PCI slots hasn't helped this time so I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their sound card.

    I'm thinking it may be the VIA chipset of my mother board (I have an Asus P3V4X) because I've read sound blaster live may have conflicts with it. Again, if anyone may know of a possible sollution I'm all ears.



    BTW- I've also heard the new Sound blaster Audigy doesn't work too well with WinXP. Any truth to this?

    That is an oddity.. VIA has released some newer drivers (4.38) that you may want to try out if you haven't already.. not sure if they will help but it's worth a try..
