Question about Intel CMI 8738 6-Channel 5.1 Surround Sound 3D PCI Sound Card (RETAIL BOX) - CM8738

1 Answer

Weird problem with c-media

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Κανονικός πίνακας"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} My card plays some media through media player with no problem, other media (youtube for instance) not at all and the system sounds only for about a second.

My system refuses all driver updates (it stops playing sound when I install anything but the driver from the motherboard cd) and all the tips and suggestion I could find approximating my problem. I have also installed the K-lite codec pack to no avail.

I have even disabled conflicting devices with no result.

System: WIN XP SP3
Audio Driver: CMI8738/C3DX
Everything is reported to be functioning properly.

PS : The Legacy Audio Drivers ->Properties->Properties allegedly displaying Multimedia devices, is empty.

Any ideas?

Try updating or reinstalling your flash player. If that doesn't work, try using a new browser.
If it's still not solved, it might be an issue with your video card driver. Try updating that.
Hope this helps. :)

Videos stop and start. How to fix


It is called buffering. The video's tend to play and stops at some point and then continue playing because it is still loading the video. Just wait for the video to load completely before playing. You will notice this thru the red indication bar align with the play button. If the loading does not finish, try reloading the webpage by pressing F5.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I can't get sound when playing a CD. Sound works when I start on my lap top. Mute has shown some- times whe I play CD. Need to get sound when playing CD's. Went to Control panel but no answers. Please...


There are a few things you can try here. You say sound works when you start your laptop, can you play sound off the Internet, for instance a news clip or youtube video? If so, the problem may be with the media player you are using. There should be a volume control on your media player, in addition to the Windows volume control. You might want to try using a different media player, like musicmatch jukebox or Winamp.

I've got crative inspire t7900 not workin


You can hear music and sound when you test your audio and also the Windows startup and shutdown even sounds. But you can't hear any music when you play it in Windows Media Player or the videos on youtube because Windows Media Player needs some codecs installed and you don't have those installed.

You can download and install this Media Player codec pack from Microsoft.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

I have downloaded the Youtube grabber file to My Documents and that was successful. But now that I am trying to play the clips on windows media player, it will not play. Says something about wrong file...


No usually media player will not play this type of file it will be a FLV type file format.
You can download some stand alone player to play the fiiles like this.

OR you can also download and install this package, this will allow Media PLayer to play the UTube files as well.
Both works well.
I hope this will help your out.


And IF your problem was solved, kindly do Rate!

I am having problems playing back downloaded files.


Are the files actually .mp3 format? There are a few different compressed formats available now and some mp3 players etc are not compatible with these formats.
Older players (and some current ones) for instance will not play .wma files which are Windows Media Audio files.

YouTube Sound Problem


This is what worked for me:
  1. Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup
  2. Halfway down the window on the left side, there's "Properties For:" selection box - select "Built-in Audio".
  3. You'll see a series of drop boxes under Audio Input. Change "Format:" from "96000.0 Hz" to "48000.0Hz". 
  4. Close Audio MIDI Setup, and play a Flash file with sound.
