I knew there had to be a drawback. Since converting nearly all of my drives to NTFS 5 yesterday, playback of WAV and MP3 files, either through Windows Media Player or WinAmp 2.74 suffers from occassional glitches and stutters. I imagine this is down to the disc I/O getting interrupted. I'v even got the WinAmp MPEG buffer up to 12000kb but it doesn't seem to have helped. I don't really want to go back to FAT32 now, so any ideas?
