Sound Stuttering: animation playback

I have a SB16 Pnp and a Goldstar GCD-R580B 8x CD Rom.  Sound stutters very  badly during playback of animation accessed from the CD and can sometimes affect the animation slightly.  Sound is fine for audio CDs and during playback from the hard drive.

I have updated CD Rom drivers.  I have updated SB16 drivers.
DirectX5 says the card is certified.  The problems occur when the CD light goes on and occur in both Win95 and DOS.

My system (if req'd) P200, 48mb RAM, (sound card & cd as above) Matrox Mystique 4mb, Diamond Monster 3D 4mb.

How do I fix this?  Is this cache size, or drivers, or a  hardware problem?  The system used to work fine but has had this problem for a number of months.  Could Apple's Quicktime for Windows have messed it up, or a version of DirectX?

Any help would be appreciated.

I suppose we're talking about an IDE CD OM drive. If that's so, it's propbably plugged in the same cable your hard drive is, that is, as primary slave. Try to plug it a secondary master. That should speed this up.

Keep the cable connecting your sound card with the speakers as short as possible.  Try not to mix up this cable with others because electric and magnetic fields are produced resulting in noise or stuttering. Have you had this problem with several programs or with a specific program?  Try running different applications and observe how the machine behaves (games that combine sound and animation playback are good for this).Since the system hasn't had this problem some months back, maybe an application you installed messed with your system, especially if it is a windows program.
