I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

I enjoy computers, music composition, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

@Karan Yes actually, they did appear to play back correctly in Windows Media Player (version 12.0.7601.17514 on Windows XP Professional 32-bit).

@Karan No, video drivers were not updated. I already discovered the solution (for our software), I wanted to post here for others.

comment How can I combine the output of 2 laptops through 1 set of speakers?
@Chris Admittedly, my answer is based on personal experience hacking together audio components when proper equipment (a mixer) was not available. I've spliced outputs together using splitters like these without problems, but I'm not saying that it's guaranteed to be problem free.

A laptop audio output shouldn't have any problem with there being audio from another laptop present on the line, especially if it's off.
