iTunes question... have trouble listening to previews

I'm on dialup and have iTunes 4.

When I try to preview a song in itunes, itíll play for two or three seconds then pause with the message:

Network Stalled
Rebuffering Stream
(then a bar showing how much itís rebuffered, I guess)

I have no problems playing previews via windows media player on Tower Records or Amazon, why am I having problems with iTunes? When I'm using Windows Media Player, it'll take 10 seconds or so to buffer, but then the preview will play uninterupted.

Unfortunately, the CD Iím looking at doesnít have previews on Towerrecords or Amazon else Iíd just go to one of them to hear the songs Iím interested in.

I went ahead and bought the one song I wanted (La Locura by Yahir), but wanted to hear another song, Te Amarť, on the CD - Otra Historia de Amor.

Open the Quicktime control panel and adjust your "Instant-On" settings to have a "short delay". This causes it to buffer more before it starts playing.
