Petro, I had to go look because my aging brain just couldn't reconstruct the path I took. I right-clicked (well did the equivalent) on volume in the sys-tray. I left arrowed once to the list of control tabs. One opens on volume. I arrowed to the tab page for audio or audio properties, then tabbed to advanced. I pressed enter and shift tabbed to the tab list. I arrowed over to performance. I then tabbed to the sampling and acceleration items. I believe arrowing to the top maximized each on my computer but this is likely different depending on computer and sound card. The same functions can be reached through the control panel, sounds options, or from the device manager under performance. One of the other paths may be less convoluted, but I listed here the steps I happened to take this time. Please make allowance for the fact I didn't copy everything down first so there may be slight variances in the words and options. I know that these functions are lurking under sounds and audio settings in windows 9XX and windows XP. I have no idea how things might work in vista.

Hi Great info here. Good to know and thank you for telling me and others. Where is this performance tab? Is it in the Sounds & Audio Devices? I go there by choosing start menu, control panel, Sounds and audio devices. I don't know every tab here. Thank you again.

Both came out with static making them almost inaudible and certainly nothing one would want to listen to for more than a minute or two. I assumed the problem came in the recording session perhaps from the stations of origination. I deleted the files but fortunately, left them in the recycle bin for a bit. I then played an older recording which I knew was good and heard the same static. After much wallowing around in various settings (most of which remain a mystery to me) I found that something had changed settings in the audio portions of my sound reducing the acceleration and sampling to their lower rates. I had no idea what did this, but restored them to their highest settings. The old recording now played as it should. I restored the deleted files from the recycle bin and they both played perfectly. The moral of this experience is simple, if you make a recording and it comes out poorly, don't immediately think that something went wrong with the replay recording. I should mention that the settings affected were in the performance tab of audio settings in windows SXP home. Other factors can interfere with playback.
