What are your system specs? Mainly your Windows version and DirectX version.

To find DirectX version...
1. Start button
2. Run...
3. type DXDIAG > click OK
4. System tag
5. 'DirectX Version:' will be near the bottom.

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

I was going to suggest to upgrade DirectX, but you have the latest. However, maybe the following.

Try a full uninstall > reinstall of Winamp. When you reinstall Winamp, uncheck Sonic Ripping/Burning support.

Based on the "Error Code 80070057" link in DJ Egg's reply from this thread, I think the problem is related to the Sonic issue. Reinstalling Winamp without it's version of the Sonic engine may clear up the issue you are having with Winamp.

Hmm. Does the error only occur when playing Audio CD's?
Or does it also happen when playing other filetypes, eg. mp3, wav, wma, aac, etc?

If just CDs, then either follow JM's instructions above,
or just uncheck "use sonic engine" in:
Prefs > Plugins > Input > CD plugin (in_cdda.dll) > config
and use wnaspi32.dll instead (for DAE support).
(note: requires winamp restart to take effect)

If all filetpyes, then please apply these DirectSound Output tweaks.

I had the same problem, and did what you recommended and still got rid of the error, but I was getting popping sound when playing cds.

I deactivated digital audio extraction in the cd-rom properties in hardware manager and it sounds good now.

Just one more comment: the cd-rom LED blinked even when reading the audio cd with winamp's DAE options disabled. Now it plays with the LED steady on, just as when I press the play button on the front of the cd-rom.

I know this problem isn't related directly, but while solving this problem I got the same problem kathyc got.
