I recently installed this and it does not seem to work for me.  I have 
copied some files from a WinXP machine (using mount_smb)... when I try 
to listen to them... I just get about a half second of noise.  Not 
really static... and definitely not music.  Just a strange noise. 
Different noise for each song I try and the same song always ganerates 
the same noise.

Any ideas?
