That is unusual - pressing in case should not effect play - not like a tape drive would.
Are you playing from CD or Hard-drive?
If Cd - try copy music to hard-drive and see how it plays - if ok - then something may be rubbing on CD in CD-Player? But that would give read errors. Have to remove CD Player and clean it.
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:
Roll the driver back to it's previous version (only tested with Windows XP)
Right-click on 'My Computer' and choose 'Properties'
Click the 'Hardware' tab
Click on 'Device Manager'
Find 'Sound, video and game controllers' and click the plus sign next to it to expand it
Find your sound card and double-click it, this will bring up it's Properties
Click the 'Driver' tab
on the 'Roll Back Driver' button. If there is a driver backed up for
your device it will roll back to that driver, otherwise a message tells
you that 'No driver files have been backed up for this device'.
If there is not a backed up driver for your sound card
you may want to just click the 'Uninstall' button to completely remove
the current driver that is giving you problems.
Install the latest driver from your sound card manufacturer's website
Find the manufacturers website and look for a drivers/downloads area
Download the most recent driver available for your sound card
Follow the instructions from your manufacturer as to how to install the new driver
Reboot your computer to make sure it loads the new driver
Try to play your MP3 or other audio file in Winamp
If these steps do not fix your problem then there are some
additional steps you can take. Some computers have more than one sound
card in them. If this is the case then it is possible that the default
sound card has somehow been changed. To make sure windows is using the
right sound card go to the 'Control Panel' and double-click the 'Sounds
and Audio Devices' entry. Click on the 'Audio' tab and in the Sound
playback area make sure the Default device is set to your preferred
sound card. You could also try using a different sound card in your system if all else fails.
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.
I ahve problem like My laptop is C700 series of compaq(C772TU) I ahve changed it OS from vista to XP and now there is no audio output whenever I try to play a song it gives msg like " Please installproper device or select another device in configuration Error code: 88780078"
please suggest me proper solution
Basically, it means that there's a problem with whatever Output Device
you've selected in: Winamp > Prefs > Plugins > Output >
out_ds > config
Either change it to match your Sound card device driver
or (re)install latest sound card drivers (and maybe also DirectX). You can also run (Start/Run( dxdiag. Look under "Sound to see what the problem is. This often means you need to reinstall or update your sound drivers.
The e-mu sure can do it. You just run whatever output you want into the input on the sound board. The setup is exactly the same as if you just wanted to play winamp music on the system.
It's your computer that can't handle it. Computer only has one sound output, so you can't play two separate things in two separate instances of winamp, because the sound only comes out of one place on your laptop.
You can buy a second external sound card, like the SB Live External USB Sound card, and maybe run both at the same time, having one winamp output to the external device, and the other winamp output to the laptop's internal sound card device, then one line runs to your e-mu system and the other to a pair of headphones.
