For some reason, I am having two problems with MP3 files, and I suspect they
are all the fault of my computer. First, the song will be interrupted by
silent spaces, which is very frustrating. I can't get the song to play
continuously. Second, if I get your song in MP3 off a website page, my MP3
player pops up in the middle of it and knocks me back into my Outlook
Express List. I can't seem to run the song, minimize it, and get back to
the page in any smooth way. I've heard you sing before, Steg, and I love
your voice. I just wish I could hear it uninterrupted!
Does anybody have a clue what's wrong with my system? (It's the MP3 that
comes automatically with Win98.se.
What download would you suggest I get? How do get a program that will both
record and play MP3 files?
