  1. Hi All.

    I have just installed a new CMedia 8738 6 channell pci sound card into my desktop. Windows XP Home. I can get perfect sound from onboard music files but my cd playback is now skipping and jumping and sound like crap. Any ideas???

    Check your connections from the card to your optical drives.

    No need to check cables, you shouldn't be using any. What media player are you using? If you go into Windows media player -> Tools -> Options -> Devices there some options you can set for your drives & devices there which might help. Ensure they're set to Digital at least

    I know that both of my Audigy cards have digital and analog connections to my optical drives. Also, there is the question of what program is being used for media playback and its configuration.
