i have a problem with sound on my pc

whenever i play music or movie files from an external usb 2 HD (connected to a PCI USB2 card) or from a HD connected to  a PCI to IDE Raid Card  the sound stops after a few minutes. the player continues to run as if there is no problem. only if i restart the pc i get the sound back . if i play a file from my internal HD that is connected to the mobo IDE i dont have any problem. i seems like the problem is with the PCI cards.

CPU: intel p4 2.0 ghz
Mobo: p4x266-8233
Chipset: via p4x266 (vt8753)
