Im Running Boot camp on my Macbook, when running XP the sound is very Tinny. When I boot back into OSX the sound is great. Are the bootcamp drivers like this all round for XP or does anybody know of any solution to correct the sound i.e using different drivers ?

The Windows drivers are still at best, beta versions. Their sound support isn't going to be as good as OSX's.

This doesn't really sound like a hardware issue.

Try upgrading to the latest bootcamp - then recreating the windows driver cd. And try and update from there.

Many Thanks. Upgraded to Boot Camp V1.2 and the sound is a little better than it was.

Im sure this will be better once leopard is released.  Many thanks
