Doom 3 demo: snd_pcm_writei failed: Broken pipe

After I start new game everything goes fine and after 2-4 min the screen freezes and the game starts going with about 2 frames per minute.I hit "esc" and after 3min i see the menu and it's fine. When I return to the game the same problem continues.

and so on...

I tried OSS instead of ALSA. The same thing happens .

missed 3 sound updates
missed 7 sound updates
missed 5 sound updates
missed 1 sound updates

and so on...

I have no problems with other games that use ALSA or OSS.

Radeon 8500
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster (it's old)
