Audio problems with AVI on Windows 7, 64


I'm having noises, cracking sound and can hear very faintly the actual sound track when playing and AVI file with MPEG-1 layer 3 audio (0x55), the video is fine.
I have tested the codecs using Gspot, and even tried using VLC as a player but with no use.
The setup is a new installed windows 7 64bit OS.
Also the auto updater reports that it needs to update Dolby Digital live pack for sound blaster x-fi titanium series 3.00.00 – but when trying the update fails since the OS is not compatible.
Everything else is up to date (SB & Win drivers etc…).
Also the files play OK on my XP desktop.
