    Several of my games give me an error relating to DirectSound when trying to play them. I get thing like "Failed to initialize DirectX Audio" and "DirectSound Error". I have the latest version, DirectX 9.0c, so it shouldent be a problem with compatibility, right? Please help me find whats wrong and fix it?

    What audio drivers do you have installed? See Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) to see how old your device drivers are.
