Hey guys. Before I formatted (like many times) I used to be able to listen to mp3z while I play games. NOw I can't!

There was on thing I did in system or somethign where you have something checkmarked

ok here's the problem

if I'm playing TONY HAWK 2 and I wanna listen to mp3z, i can but then after it quits and says some device is in use.

How do I have it where I can have it be used by two applications? I remember I was able to do so but I can't remember what I did.

Yah, does your soundcard have software it came with? In my case i go into "device control" or "audio headquarters" and go into your "maximum simultaneous wave playback" and kick it up to 4 or so. Chances are when you reformatted it went back to its default (1).

yeah, i like to listen to mp3z or audio cd's while gaming as well, but had similar problems. I just re-install my soundblasterlive and everything works fine, for awhile, I don't think this is a permanent solution.....
