That's a relief I'm not sure I did...

Thanks, looking forward to see what the next update to it brings later in the year.

Dave, till the next arrives, i am facing one other problem. I put a wav file to play when the button is pressed. The file is a just a click, the problem is that some time it plays and other times don't. This is the second time i face the same problem. In a Radio application i was building i had the same problem with jingles because was 3-15 seconds. Can you confirm that...???
Also i encoded the file with Goldwave application into mp3 using LAME encoder but when i try to select the file from Plugin i get the message "A problem occurred in initializing MCI."

The files

The command i use is:
dxPlaySoundFile "C:\Program Files\NeoBook 4\Pub\sound\click.mp3" "NORMAL"

I didn't have any problems playing the wav file. It worked consitently every time I tried it.

I was not able to play the mp3 file through DX. All NeoBookDX does is pass the name of the file to DirectX which opens and plays the file. For some reason, DirectX doesn't like something in the mp3 file. Make sure that there isn't any extra junk (like non standard ID3 tags) stored inside the file. I've read that some implementations of LAME will add non-standard junk to files which would make them incompatible with DirectX. Look for an option in LAME like "strictly-enforce-ISO" to insure that it creates 100% compatible MP3 files.

Lame encoder is open source. In my opinion, it was named appropriately. If you want to create true compatible mp3, use the encoder that ships with Sound Forge or Sony Vegas or any other quality audio software.

The same applies to video encoders. Lots of open source encoders out there. But if you want quality video, that isn't out of sync and isn't jerky, look at encoders like divx or xvid or any other quality product.
