Why does the RED LED flash four times at power up ?

This is by far our most commonly asked question. Almost 99% of time, it is because your files have double filename extensions. I.E. "01C.WAV.WAV" or "CFSOUND.INI.INI". Later versions of Windows hide the file extensions in explorer, so by putting ".WAV" or ".INI" in the filename, you are actually causing a duplicate file extension. 

To turn off the hiding of file extensions in Windows XP, do the following:

Now the complete file names will be displayed in Explorer, and any folder, and you can view and remove the duplicate file extensions.
