    Probably stuck when loading a new file, do you notice and increased HDD/CPU activity in task manager at that time? Have you tried, if it happens in another audio player, WMP is known to have some glitches.

    The answer to both questions is no.
    I don't see an increase in memory (indeed supposedly) this new machine shouldn't have that problem...
    I don't hear that problem with VLC
    Anyhow I want to fix my WMP
