Found this info for this error, may help you.
as soon as you try to play an MP3 or other audio file you get the following message: "Bad DirectSound Driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code: 88780078 or 8878000A"
The Solution The way that we were able to fix the problem was by rolling our sound card driver back to the previous version and then we installed the latest driver for the sound card. Here are some detailed steps you can follow:
If you are still having trouble with this error you can press 'Ctrl+P' while in Winamp to bring up the Winamp preferences. Go to the 'Plug-ins' section and click on 'Output'. Trying changing the output from DirectSound output to WaveOut output and then close the preferences and close Winamp. Open Winamp again and see if it works now.
