Hi all, I'm stumped. I have a client who provides audio streams of news bro= adcasts to a number of local radio stations here in Riverside. His office u= ses Magix Studio 7 in conjunction with some other audio program. They can u= se several: Windows Media Player, Quicktime, Itunes, etc. The computer in = question was originally a Win95 box now running Win98. Everything was runni= ng as it should until the other day. They need to go back and forth between= Studio 7 and some media program. Now the audio portion of the system stops= when a stream is imported for manipulation. When I checked out the system = today, I could easily go back and forth between S7 and WinMedPlay to listen= to all kinds of audio input. When a stream was imported, and then we tried= to go back to WinMedPlay, we are presented with this error: "MMSYSTEM004 S= pecified device is already in use, wait ..., try again...." They have anoth= er media editing program that does the same thing. I was thinking it might = be S7 till I saw it happen with another program. I've checked Device manage= r--no conflicts, cntl/alt/del to see the running processes--only 5 all norm= al and not related. The device is the AWE64 wave device. Some program is gr= abbing it and not releasing it when finished. I've forgotten how to terminate a process like this when it isn't in the li= st of running processes. This means the system needs to be restarted to use= any audio divice.=20 I forgot to mention that the system has two modems that also can use audio = resources. However, when I check all resouces, there's no conflict. Have any of you heard of something like this? Should I delete all of the of= fending media drivers and have the system reinstall them, or maybe reinstal= l windows--not a clean install, I don't want to lose their programs or data= . The system has been scanned for viruses, but an AdAware scan freezes when i= t gets into the Magix folder. The spyware also jumps up exponentially. I've= been unable to complete a scan. I've tried scanning just the registry area= s to no avail.=20 I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have.
