    hi, I´ve recently bought a new pc (Supermicro H8DCE mobo, two AMD 265 dual opteron,) and I had
    a strange problem. Even with a simple program (winamp) the system starts playback at more speed
    at certain time. Do you know what can cause the problem? I use a Fireface 800 on a Texas Intruments
    PCI express fireware card. Thanks all in advance.

    If you continually monitor through the fireface, that is, you don't use the onboard sound card whatsoever, likely the problem would be due to a high samplerate. MP3s and wave files generally playback at 44.1kHz unless you recorded them at a higher samplerate. So if you have your fireface set to record/playback at 48kHz and you play a 44.1kHz file, the song will be played noticeably faster than normal.

    That would be my guess anyway.

    thanks for your reply. I´ve set the Fireface as master at 44,1 sample rate too and this is not the problem. The strange thing for me is that this happens at certain time, a few minutes later than start playback, and with all software, nuendo, windows media, winamp, premiere etc... I´ve disabled the mainboard soundchip also.?????
