would you care to explain your problem and how this is related to C++?

My guess is that there are differences in the formats of the two systems and that is the cause of the problem but this is a really wild guess since you didn't really provide all relevant information that you could have been able to provide.

Why do people write "I need help please" but doesn't bother to explain what they need help for? How are we supposed to help you when you give such minimal information? Sorry I am saying this to you but I have seen several of this kind of postings lately and it gripes me why people cannot provide info that they have but still expect us to help them out. You're just the latest one to do that and I am getting fed up by it.

Please provide more information.

For example C++ code. What kind of PDA? Is it windows CE? Which version of Windows CE? Which version of media player? which version of desktop, what OS, what version of media player.

etc etc etc this is all very relevant information and it just eludes me why you didn't provide it.

When a user click on a program on the Pocket PC 2002, It will connect to the server through wireless, and the server will send a mp3 file to the Client.

When i tried to play the mp3 files, It could not play on the 0-1 sec but it could play at the 1 to the end of song. I drag the playing cusor.

I tried my client codes on a Desktop(through wireless) there were no problem to it. SO i believe that there is no problem with my code. My Pocket Pc is using version 8 of windows player. And my server is using windows 2000.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is it possible that you either didn't get a header over correctly, or that the receiver expected a header it didn't get?

Is it possible that the implementation of the two media players (on desktop and PDA) have slightly different headers so that the PDA version will garble the first second of the sound file?

Just guessing but it is probably worth checking out.
