Question about Computers & Internet
My long standing WinAmp suddely started giving me the following message: ''Bad Direct Sound driver, Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code 88780078''
I went and reinstalled the 5.52 version, figuring that would correct any problem. Not so! Still get that above message. My skin shows it is playing but no sound is coming through!
Thanks for your help on what to do. I'm anxious to get WinAmp working right.

I know this was posted a long time ago, but i have a very simple solution to this problem that does not in any way require you to modify anything else besides the preferences tab in winamp. Rambling aside, here's the solution:
1. Go to Options in Winamp then Select Preferences
2. Under Plug-ins select Output
3. Double-Click Nullsoft Direct Sound Output v2.49 (d) [out_ds.dll]
4. At the Device tab, there's a dropdown menu, simply select your
sound card driver (it's always option 2 for me).
5. Click Apply and bail. All done.

It looks like you might be having a sound card driver problem or DirectX problem.
If sound is working without problems on other programs try downloading the latest version of Directx from Microsoft's website along with the newest sound card drivers for your soundcard
