I heve an mp3 player that allows me to play WMAs mp3s and I would of course rather use WMAs because they have the same quality at a much smaller size.
I have been having this problem for quite a while and have talked to the tech support people from the company and they havn't been able to tell me anything useful, so I figured you people were probably smarter anyway.
When I encode a WMA I get this really wierd background noise. It sounds almost like metalic clanking or something. I have tried many different encoders and have the same problem. I recently formated put Win98 on and installed CD-DA encoder and tried only to get the background noise. It doesn't matter if I listen to it on my pc or on my mp3/wma player I can still hear it. It has happened on several differnt computers and I can't figure out what it is. I tried reinstalling the codec for WMA 8 and that didn't help. If you want to download a song with background noise to figure out what it is you can do so at http://www.zesna.com/messed-up.wma
If anyone could help me I would really REALLY appreciate it. Thanks so much!
