I am running windows 98 on a cyrix 686 200 with 32 mb ram. I have an atapi CD-ROM in the machine, and when I put audio cd's in the thing they skip from song to song, playing just the first few bars of each song, then on to the next. This continues persistently.
I have replaced the CD ROM, the cable, switched it from master to slave and from primary to secondary, and have had no luck.
In the past the thing worked just fine.
