(Q) Broken up voice Audio sound (WAV file)
Can you help me get my pc to play my voice files again. I'm experiencing VERY broken up audio from WAV files that used to work fine before.
I'm a new square dance caller and I use a D'Music MP3 player/voice recorder to capture the choreography used by experienced square dance callers that I dance to. I upload these WAV files to my PC, play them with WinAmp, type out the choreographic moves into a text editor, and then work my "dancer dolls" (8 wooden checkers representing dancers) through the moves so that I understand the flow. I've been doing this for over a year now.
I may capture the files for several weeks (and load them on my PC) before I find time to listen to them. Recently, it's become impossible to listen to these files because I hear the voice for a few syllables and then it cuts out completely for a few seconds, only to return again for a few more blurted out syllables , etc.
Initially I thought my MP3 player/recorder had "gone", however, WAV files that I had listened to and typed out before are also now garbled. Putting the files back on my MP3 player/recorder provides the sound OK, but I need to listen to it on my PC so I can stop and start it as I type out the moves. I tested an example WAV file on another computer and it works OK.
On my PC, "music" WAV files that I recorded from records seem OK so it's only WAV files from this MP3 player/recorder that seem affected. Winamp, RealPlayer, WindowsMedia all do the same.
I'm guessing that it's some sort of codec problem, but what's common to all three players, and wouldn't affect other "music" wave files.
I'd appreaciate any help you can give or direction to point me in.
