😉 ???I am a new poster.I am running Windows Media Player in Vista and find that the song starts to skip or temporarily stop and start again towards the end of the song.Does anyone know anything about this and can help me with my very frustrating problem. >:(the meisterJune 16, 2009 at 2:09 am #32076June 16, 2009 at 4:11 am #32077the meisterParticipant
:)1. it is cd's that I have saved into Windows Media Player file.2. it means music on file in my computer.3. you hit the nail on the head....it hesitates for awhile then continues from the same place.4. it is happening to all songs in the media library. :-*June 16, 2009 at 5:00 am #32078

Just to mention some other things, I think Vista needs at least 750MB RAM well for me anyway that's with Vista Premium not sure what the difference is with Basic probably not much so 512MB RAM would probably be killing the computer.For now follow what Dak has said so we know if you do have 2GB of RAM and what sort of Spec the computer has and the problem can probably stop there if you don't have 2GB RAM otherwise we'll continue to search for the problem.Anyway to continue if you do have 2GB RAM, have you tried playing the music in another Music Player like Itunes?I've never really liked the Windows Media Player but had to put up with it, then a couple of months ago I got the Nokia Music software which I had to install while using my Phone, I found it really good, Not had any problems with it until about 2 weeks ago the software was botched I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but no matter what I did I couldn't get it to work again, the only problem I found with it though was that it was quite a Resource hog, it used about 100MB RAM sometimes if I left it running about 200MB, so I had the choice of going back to WMP or finding another, I decided to go on a search for another and immediately thought Open-Source so went to Sourceforge and managed to find a program called Songbird (By Mozilla using Add-Ons as well) which worked brilliantly and with the Add-Ons it worked really well so since then I have stayed with that, it only uses about 60MB of RAM a bit more than Windows Media Player but still good for what it is.So maybe you could try Itunes or Songbird if you do have 2GB of RAM which I suspect, if you want to use Itunes (Download link - http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/) you will have to put your Music CD's in again and let the program read the disc and rip the music, just try 1 disc to test and see if you hear the stuttering playback, if you decide to try Songbird then all you have to do is download the program from here - http://getsongbird.com/ install it and then when you open it up you should be able to tell it where your Music Files are stored on your computer (Probably your Music Folder) it will then load them into the Library and you will be able to choose which song you want to play, if you don't hear any stuttering then obviously WMP is the problem which is what I suspect more at the moment if you do have 2GB RAM.December 29, 2009 at 10:37 am #32080MenkaParticipant
