The music..? [CLOSED]

I have a query.
Recently I've started playing this (having got a second-hand copy from a charity shop), but there's just thing bothering me, in that the music suddenly and randomly disappears at times.
Although it's happened in various places, it mainly occurs in the Magic Crafters Hub, and usually after I've lost a life. When Spyro's been 'restored' (so to speak) there's nothing - just the sound effects.
Another thing is that the music tends to 'judder' at times (generally at the start of a level). It's hard to explain, but it's rather like someone switching a radio on and off for a few minutes, before it sorts itself out.

Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just my copy?

Sounds like it's just your copy. I never had this problem. Maybe the disc is scratched badly...

Dawn of the Dragon is the best Spyro game since the original trilogy.
Better? No.
Awesome? Yes.

Yeah, I have that problem in Tree Tops and that swampy level near it (what's it called?). Probably just a glitch... Or a bad copy.

I had similar glitch, because in my version there was no music at all. Only sound of jumping, flaming and walking and enemies/fodder sounds. For months I didn't know what to do. Then I realised that my copy is NTSC, got from my cousin from the USA. I simply got PAL version and I was delighted to hear the main menu theme after this gnorc sticked this flag at the top of the mountain smilie

Ah, thanks everyone.
I did have to clean my copy when I got it, the case is partialy broken, and has a huge crack in it, and there a couple of light scratches on the disk, so I expect that it's probably that which is causing it to act up. It seems the previous owner didn't take that much care of it! smilie

Glad things worked out for you Paplok, mine's correct region (also PAL). smilie

I have a Platinum copy and the Black Label copy, it happens on the Black Label copy in the later levels, but never on the Platinum copy.

^ Later levels are burned on the edges of CD/DVD, and scratches are often there, so music can be damaged only in later levels. It's mean: you are playing two first homeworlds' levels and after second boss music simply disappears. You were in hope that it's a 100% working copy, but...

On the Black Label copy, I can still complete it 100% or 120% whatever it was, it's just the music cuts off.

You disk's probably scratched. Some of the music in my games crackle a little towards end of the tracks but not by much and my disks are a bit scratched to say the least

I got PAL version...

I use PAL PS1...

The Dark Hollow music booms and then mutes itself...

Really a shame because I love Dark Hollow music.

My game did this, but I always assumed that it was just because it was really old and incredibly worn out, it had scratch marks all over the underside of the disk. I would find skipping music, sometimes no music, and often a level would begin with the music from a completely different level, so I'd say the previous owners didn't take the best care of it.
When I got the emulated version, as expected from anyone, it was fine. But when I put the scratched disk in my computer and ran it on the emulator it worked fine with no scratches at all. I did this with my Gateway to Glimmer game, even though you could only get to Autumn Plains and then it would crash, it still got past the bloody opening sequence.

I have the same problem, its just the condition of the disc, thankfully it's not to distracting.

Well I have the same problem with Midday Gardens in YoTD. smilie Usually after I pass Sgt. Byrd's little building the music stops and I can just hear an annoying "shudder" of the jump sound effect. smilie
