Its been a week and a half now.......Not Sure if its a sound card issue,
Hard disk Space issue....or What............
Audio Buffers really Bad in Cubase, itunes, etc. thought it was the Omega
interface at first but does the same when I switched back to the internal
Realtek sound device........
I've tried every thing I can think off. Updating driver,Defrag, Disk and registry clean up....and getting rid of files to free up harddrive space
to help laptop run faster......Seems to have gotten better but not
back to 100%........
I have a Toshiba satellite a105-s4084,Win xp with Intel core duo
processor T2050, 1024Mb DDR2 SDRAM, 120GB(5400rpm)HDD
I had only 29gigs of free space avail. when prob. started. Now
after disk cleanup,and file manag. I'm Up to 36gigs of free space
Is this still not enough disk space to run Programs with out Audio glitches
Im running Cubase with the lexicon omege interface.........
I've ran virus scans also nothing major shows up........
Please help I'm In mid of Production and have deadlines and gigs
coming forward...................

This one is a little hard to diagnose without being there, but it sounds like there are too many resources taking up memory while trying to play audio, even with 1GB of RAM. If you're using Windows Vista, you really need more RAM - I would boost it up to 3GB. If your running Windows XP, I would try turning off those programs that are running in the background while trying to play music like your virus program (I know its not good to turn this off, but this will let you know if its taking up too many resources). You may want to get a faster external hard drive to store your music on since most laptop hard drives are a little slow, but this shouldn't be creating the problem you're having. You've mentions virus scans, but have you tried any anti-virus scans to make sure?

No. My 80GB C partition has only 4.5GB free. Everything works fine.
