I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I just upgraded my DAW to a 2Ghz Pentium IV, 512Mg RAM and a dual hardrive system. Because I use a Lexicon Core 2 card I have to use Win 98SE as my operating system. The Lexicon works fine for recording but whenever I try to listen to a CD it stutters non-stop (media files like mpg, avi also stutter) and when the system boots up there must be some sort of conflict going on because the Windows wave files don't work until I've opened and closed my Cubase VST program. This situation got particularly noticible when I installed a media update file from Microsoft's Windows Update site. Any ideas as to what I can do? I'd really appreciate it. By the way, I can't just uninstall the media update.
