    Have you got VLC installed, I've heard that it can cause audio out problems. When did the problem start ? Have you installed any new software recently ?

    No, If the problem started before you installed VLC then it can't be that program.

    Have you ran Apples hardware test recently ? and have you got the latest firmware installed. Check this out at http://www.apple.com/support/powermac/ .

    Hold on a minute, the G5's have got digital out and system sound out haven't they ? Maybe this is part of the problem. Open the system preferences and click on the output tab, have a look which one is selected and mess about with the settings to see if it helps.

    As you can tell I don't have a G5 (Well, a G5 imac I have) so I can only suggest things. Sorry if I'm not helping much but then at least it will keep the thread active. Maybe someone who owns a G5 will come along and know what the problem is !!

    Just noticed something. You haven't got a G5 but an imac G5 right.? Maybe you should start another thread but then with imac G5 otherwise people will think (like I did) that your talking about the Powermac G5 models as they are usually just called G5's..

    With my imac G5 I don't have this problem. How long does it actually take ? are we talking about minutes or seconds and what program are you using, try itunes out as with that program I don't have any problems myself !!

    Okay dude, im such a n00b, i thought that powermac and imac G5's are the same thing....

    Bacically, everytime i plug them in, any programme that plays audio just has the loading thing up until i switch to another window..

    It takes about 2 minutes
