    I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with Windows XP Pro with SP2. I am using Windows Media Player 11.05721.5230. Right now I have 26GB of music that I ripped from CD's to the D: drive in my computer. I RIP the CD's with Windows Media Audio Pro format with a Bit Rate of 192 Kbps.

    My problem is that when I play some of the songs on my PC it sounds like the song is skipping. I tried every fix that I could find but still have the same problem. I have been told that the skips are coming from the CD due to scratches on the CD. That isn't correct because some of the CD's were brand new and had no scratches. My temporary fix it to just delete the song. I copied my music to a new location on the HD and then deleted the old location and defraged the HD. After that I am still having the same problem.

    When I copy music from my PC to either my iPod or my Zen Touch I get the same kind of errors.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem?

    Hi, welcome to TSG.

    I would try ripping some songs to Mp3 format and see if they work better for you. Mp3 is a more universal format and can be played on a wide variety of devices.

    WMA Pro just never really caught on and not many devices will play it.
