Hi all,

Maybe one of you more knowledgeable people can provide a clue to this. I seem 
to be the only one with this problem. I've noticed with some files that they 
sound fine on the recorder I use, but when I send them to the PC and play them, 
the pitch starts out a half step higher or lower, and then adjusts itself after 
a couple seconds. This happens occasionally, but not every time I copy files. 
I've noticed when playing back some podcasts to test them for quality, that my 
voice lowers a bit and then adjusts itself after a few seconds. It's not 
consistent, and there's no way to predict when it will happen, but it is really 
a nuisance. It seems to happen when the files are being copied to the PC, 
because they can still be in WMA format and I can hear the pitch changes from 
the copy on the PC, but on the DS2 or WS320 they sound fine.

Anybody got any ideas why this happens and if it can be fixed in some way?

Thanks -
