Bad quality sound reproduction.

When I play music in any programme it sounds like a scratchy old LP.
It is bad whether I am playing a CD, Windows Media Player, or using iTunes.

I would start by trying to replace the sound card driver - link.

If that doesn't work, it may be an issue with the speakers themselves.

Sound from speakers is not clear


Try head phones. Are they also not clear? IF they sound ok then its possible your speakers have been damage. Try another source, Music mp3, Cd, etc. Are all the sources the same. If Headphones sound good and speakers bad then troubleshoot the speakers. If both sound bad then troubleshoot the software and settings. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar and adjust audio setting. Try playing audio with windows media player and then play the same file/song with another software, I-tunes, quicktime, VNC, etc. Does different software play the file correctly and another play it not clear. Then adjust the software settings in the player thats bad. .. .

What is MP3?


MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

When i insert the cd/dvd in dvd drive and copy some thing from the cd/dvd and instantly playing the music the sound of music is coming discontinously why


#1, try to do nothing else while recording. Second, when the computer start up, and the start up sounds plays, does it sound bad? If it does, you are having problems with windows.

Bad sound


Try cleaning the disc and putting a lense cleaner in (you can purchase them from many stores), it's a disc with a tiny brush attached.

Other than that, try another game and see if anything changes.

Otherwise, take it in for a waranty service.

Sound scratchy


Seems to me that the first thing you want to do is find out if your problem comes from the camera speakers/output, or if it records them scratchy. Take one of the "scratchy" cassettes, and play them on another device to see if it transfers bad audio. If it does, then you're worst off offcourse, more of a repair. If it doesn't you can decide you don't need a repair, as long as it does the job. Good luck
