Question about Cowon System Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Glitchs in playback

All audio files I have downloaded from my PC have occasional unpleasant sharp sounds like a needle being knocked on a record or a hard disc slip error, they seem to occur at similar places in tracks as one plays them. These sounds are not there when I play the original tracks on my PC.

I downloaded an updated firmware edition, this didn't alter what was happening.

SOURCE: M2A-VM Audio problems

Asus does have Updated software for, Realtek ALC883 Audio Driver V5.10.0.5404 for Windows 2000/XP & 64bit XP (WHQL).
Dated: 2007/09/24
There is also an update for the Bios which includes an Update Realtek PXE ROM to V2.08 dated 2007/12/4. To look at these updates & others click the link below. The link will open to your board with Linux opened. Just click, Latest or All at the top of the window.
If the updates do not help remember your board is warranted for three years through Asus. You can call Asus Tech at: 812-282-2787. IL EST. It sounds to me that the onboard audio chip is going. I checked all FAQ's & found no complaints about the onboard sound.
Hope this helps & leads to a fix..
please vote... Luck!

SOURCE: Cannot play file! File is corrupted.

I had that problem with music files. Said corrupt file whenever I played in shuffle/all mode. I fixed it very simply. Here's how.
On your screen (not computer, just your 605), open Menu, then hit Settings. At the bottom is System. Open that. When you do, you'll see your system info. There's a button that says "Update ARC Library." Hit it. It will take a few seconds, but you'll see everything new you've loaded being updated quickly. After I did that, I had no more problems. Hope it helps on your music, and also any other problems. paul4laffs

SOURCE: Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue

I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.

I downloaded a .msf file from a Sony audio recorder. Please advice how I could playback this audio .msf file.


It seems like you've downloaded the wrong files...
As mentioned at Sony's FAQ:
MSGLIST.MSF is a file that contains information such as the order of folders, playback order of audio files and recording date and time. If user connects the recorder to the computer, the MSGLIST.MSF files are displayed but do not delete or change these files. If these files are operated, the saved files may be broken or the recorder may not work correctly.

The right way to copy your recordings is explained here...

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with 4 "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Good luck and Best regards,

Hi,I'm having a very big problem.In the Sound and Audio Device it is said that there's No audio Device !.Even though days before, i was having sound.In the Audio tab,in the MIDI music playback there's...

Ok, if you have the audio driver installer with you then it's fine, otherwise download it from your PC manufacturer's site for your model no. Run the installer, it will extract some files in C drive in a folder. now open device manager, right click on audio controller and select update option, then select install manually and "i will choose driver". In the next dialogue, click 'browse' and point it to the folder where driver has extracted files, inside the folder somewhere there will be a .inf file, select that and click OK.
If you are still having difficulty, then post here your model no., audio device etc. in detail, then i can guide you better.

Just installed new motherboard and now receive following message......itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly. How do I fix this?

Try reinstalling quicktime. Go on control panel uninstall quicktime. Then go to this url:
Download it again. And install it again. Itunes should now work.

If it doesn't, for Video problems: Open QuickTime Player and go to 'Edit' -> 'Preferences' -> 'QuickTime Preferences' -> 'File Types' -- check here to see if the file format of your problem video files is selected.

For Audio problems: Open QuickTime Player and go to 'Edit' -> 'Preferences' -> 'QuickTime Preferences' -> 'Audio' -- Here you will see a Device is needed that will play your sound. Select 'Audio Playback and Recording Devices', If you are having an Audio problem it may be due to having no device or an improper device.

Good Luck

No sound

There would be sound on playback in camera and may be Volume is too low. To increase volume, touch P-MENU then VOLUME and increase ---> it.

No sound when playing back imported file in PC can be issue of sound driver of Windows or sound codec for media Player in your PC.

You can download Cole2k codec pack (audio included) and install it in PC. This will enable your PC to playback all kind of media files.

How do I play MPEG recordings?

Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
