Every once in a while, the volume on my mp3s goes up and down quickly. It is not an issue with an individual mp3 file. I have replaced the sound card, but the new one is also starting to do it. The original, a Soundblaster Live card, got to the point where I couldn't listen to anything without eventually waking people up. The Audigy 2 card isn't as bad, yet. I am using a new harddrive and am still having issues (both cards ran on XPpro). The programs in question are Windows Media Player and Winamp.

Have you isolated it to a few or all?

Make some new mp3's and use only those for awhile. What encoder are you using to make your mp3's?

I'm using Windows Media Player to encode the files, but the volume changes don't happen regularly with specific mp3s. Every file was terrible with the old card, but it only happens once in a while with the new card.

Well maybe the problem lies there, with WMP, as you've replaced your SC.

Try another encoder and see if your problem goes away, if it does then WMP may be the problem.

Get CDex, choose LAME in configuration, and rip a few fresh as a test.

Get the 1.51 version as some have reported a few bugs with the latest.
