Hi w00dy

It is essential to keep your computer's operating system and programs in top condition.  That means keeping up with applying patches, hotfixes and service packs. Make sure that your Operating System and Internet Explorer are up-to-date by visiting the  Windows Update Site and downloading all of the Critical Updates and Service Packs.

Downloaded MP10Setup, but when I tried to run it, it said @can only be installed if you're running XP. I had already downloaded the codecs.

Forgot to say - when any of the mp3 files are burned onto CD, they play back perfectly on my stereo. Is there a system setting somewhere that could cause this?

Well tie me up and kick me round the room, the answer was simple after all. Just goes to show what panic can do to the human brain. Went to Control Panel/System/Device Manager, clicked the sound driver then Properties/Driver/Update Driver, and the existing driver was replaced with a SoundMax one. Problem solved. My excuse is I just assumed that Me setup & or Windows Updates would put the right driver in there for me. Now we know it doesn't.
Thanks for your help, Geekgirl
