Thats a driver related error ..... I used to get those with my sound card needed to find good drivers ..... and I could not until about a month ago ....... because of that I removed that sound card and all was fine ... sold the card to a buddy and he got good drivers from windows updates when I had the card they were not yet out ..... so is it your sound card?? could be what do you have .... just make sure all your drivers are the best available .... update them all and I am sure that will fix it ....

there was also something with ez cd creator that caused that problem they have a fix for it on their site if your using ezcd that is

Thanks for the replies lads,I think it may be my sound card,it is a Creative Sound Blaster PCI(ES1371,ES1373)WDM?
I have tried to find driver on Creative site but could not,I think because it is a cheap old card,very interesting info on the m/s site,I suppose it is a question of trial and error.


if it's a creative sound card, you could take it out and look at the bottom of it for a number (ex. CT4810), then use that number at to find the right drivers for the card.

That soundblaster driver is a Generic Driver used for most soundblaster cards.

I read somewhere that if the sound card (SB) is installed in the first PCI slot (the top most one), there could be a hardware conflict. Something to do with the first PCI slot being the *Master* slot or something. It was said to remove the card and it's drivers, then reinstall it in another PCI slot and let the OS reinstall the drivers for it. Also do not install the Drivers from Creative. Let XP install it's own drivers... They always seem to work.

Hope it helps.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
