Hi Allen, here are the steps: To check your hard disk for errors: 1. Highlight my computer and open it. 2. Right-Click the drive you wish to scan, then scroll to properties. Or press alt+enter on the selected drive. 3. Press CTRL+Tab to open the tools page, then make sure that the check now button is in focus. Press enter, and scan disk will come up. Now press the start button to start the check. To defragment your hard drive: 1. Do the same steps as above, except the following: 2. Ensure that defragment now is in focus, and activate it. 3. Disk defragmenter will now do its work. At the end, you'll be asked if you want to quit defragmenter. Activate the yes button. Hope that helps, and good luck.

If the audio is sounding like it's buffering, it sounds like your hard disk needs a bit of maintenance. Have you performed a scan disk or a disk defragmenter? Just a couple of suggestions there. Hope that helps, and good luck!

        Hi george,thanks a lot for getting back to me re the Win 98
      buffering
  problem.turns out it probably wasn't buffering !. I try to isolate the
problem by burning the offending files with Nero and they performed
perfectly both in a seperate mp3 player ,as well as in the computers cd
drive,however when played directly from the hard disk via Windows media
player the buffering like audio is again repeated,so does this
      eliminate
  buffering? or  perhaps a sound card problem?other mp3 files also display
      the
  same buffering affectwhen played directly from the hard disk .could you
suggest any other tests I could try out?.Thanks again .Alan

(Sorry about the incomplete message just now - finger trouble)

  I hate to say this, but "meagre resources" is something of an
understatement.  Upgrading the memory will possibly help, but you may
      just
  be throwing good money after bad for this application.

  I don't know about where you are located, but here in Northampton in
      the
  U.K. for example, there are one or two second hand dealers who will sell
      you
  a PIV for not much more than 256 megs of new memory.

  George.
