    Music issue

    I downloaded 25 to life today from D2D, and the only issue I'm having with it is with the music. I'm only getting music on the main menu, and there it's choppy and incoherent. In the actual game, I'm not getting any music at all although I can see icons popping up on the bottom of the screen showing the artist and the title of the current track - I'm just not hearing it at all. I've checked the options and turned the music sound all the way up and still nothing. I'm having no other problems with the game. Performance is fine and the sounds are fine as well. All my drivers and DirectX are current. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    My system specs:
    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
    AMD XP 2100 1.73 GHz
    1 GB Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS

    Could you try reducing your sound acceleration within dxdiag (it will be set to full by default - run dxdiag and select the sound tab, theres a slider bar to the left) this will help us diagnose the issue further...
