openSUSE 12.1 KDE Emu PCI 0404 - Audio plays too fast...

I have searched the web to try and solve this issue, but I haven't been able to.
I am running the openSUSE 12.1 OS, KDE desktop, and I am using an EMU 0404 PCI sound card.
I have also used the online update within openSUSE so the OS should have all the latest/greatest updates.

The issue?
All audio (mp3, streaming, etc) plays to fast and sounds like the Chipmunks...
I do have a graphics card (GT200 [GeForce 210]) with sound support, but I have already disabled it so it no longer shows up in Kmix.
The audio plays fast with or without the graphics card sound support enabled/disabled...

Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated.
I am fairly adept to Windows, but I am a novice, to say the least, in Linux.

Thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to resolving this issue with the help of the openSUSE forum...
