If you're running Winamp 2x (which you should be - 3 is a big nasty mess that'll eat up all your system resources), try this:JohnDyer wrote:2. With Winamp previewing through the internal soundcard/drivers, I can't seem to adjust the external (to Winamp) volume because the Extigy seems to have taken it over. Is there a way to get around this? Basically I can't get enough volume going to the headphones.

"Why doesn't the volume control work on my system?
Your sound card's driver is broken. You could talk to your hardware vendor about having them fix it, but because we're so nice, we've provided a way for you to skirt this problem by having Winamp scale up or down the volume of its output directly instead of having the sound card do it.
Open the Preferences window and select Plug-ins/Output. Select "Nullsoft WaveOut Plug-in" and click 'Configure'. Look for a little checkbox labeled "Alt setting mode". Check it, click 'OK', and then close the Preferences window. Voila! Play some music and try out your new volume control. "
That may or may not work. It worked on my machine at work where I can't upgrade the drivers, but it didn't work for my coworker.
If you're running winamp 3, you may be able to find an answer somewhere on the winamp page.
