Hey, I just bought the GTA Trilogy and got GTA III up and running in widescreen. Everything worked beautifully and as it should. I then decided to put 100 or so mp3s in the mp3 folder so I could listen to them instead; Here's where my problems began.

I get into a car and switch to the 'mp3 player' station and there will either be no sound or some loud glitchy/static sounds. When the static occurs it will play for two seconds and the game will lock up and repeat the static sounds until I end the process in the task manager. This seems to be completely random as I have listened to dozens of my custom tracks flawlessly most other times I've tried.

I checked the 'mp3 report.txt' file in the mp3 folder and it has marked every one of my custom tracks as 'OK'. They're all just normal mp3 files so I really have no idea what the issue could be.

Anyone have a solution?

Edit: Oh yeah, my computer specs:
Windows XP with Service Pack 3
Intel Core2 Duo 2.16GHz
Nvidia 7300GT 128MB
1GB RAM

I have the GTA3 FOV application running alongside the game so I can appropriately fit the game to my resolution. Also using a custom skin.

Try running the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode and delete the gta_sa.set file from the User Files folder.

Haha, it tells that you're mostly active in the San Andreas subforum. It's gta3.set not gta_sa.
