Having a problem playing wavs (ripped from my cds or downloaded) or
audio cds with wmp (and media centre)
A fraction of a second after starting play I get a brief "screech" and
then the rest of the track plays normally.
This also happens when I hit the next track button, the track starts,
then a screech then normal play.
You also get the screech when you use the seek bar to go to a different
part of the track.
Playing the wav (or cd) in other players works fine, ie I have tried
xmplay and vlc.
At first I heard the problem when I used audiograbber to rip a cd to
wav files, I played the wavs and heard the screech and assumed the cd
was dirty, cleaned it, cleaned the cd drive with a commercial head
I then played the files in other players and found they played
I could just ignore the problem and associate wavs (and cds) with
another player, but I quite like wmp.
I have uploaded a sample of the problem I captured to a mp3.

The first screech is just after the start of the track, the next
screeches are as I use the seek bar to move into the track.
For those wondering the track is "It's all Coming Back to Me Now", by
