I am experiencing an application lock up in Premiere Pro 4.2.1 while playing an audio-only file in the source monitor. I'm not sure if this is the same problem that was fixed in version 4.0.1, but it seems like the same problem when I'm searching for solutions and find the list of bug-fixes in that patch/update.
When I'm starting playback of an audio-only file in the source monitor I can't stop it again. It just loops (no - it is not the loop-button). Pressing the space-bar or the stop-button won't help - in fact nothing will make it stop again before I force the program to quit.
I found another thread on this forum (Audio clips won't stop playing in clip monitor), but not much help in that. Anyone having the same issue?
In need of help!

As soon as I hear or read the word Matrox, I get suspicious. Did you try without anything Matrox? What codec is used for the audio file?
With the release of PrPro 4.2, there were major issues with the Matrox drivers. All sorts of issues, and some with regard to Audio. Matrox issued a beta driver update, but I think that they have a full-release by now. That beta helped many, and I would assume that the full-release would fix even more issues. If you do not have the very latest Matrox drivers, I would install those first - and hope.
Also, the answers to Harm's questions will be very useful to troubleshooting, in case that the newest Matrox drivers do not work.
