1394 Firewire sound card is unable to be detected under Vista SP2


I have an external sound card that connects to my laptop via Firewire 1394.  This device is not detected at all Windows Vista SP2.  When I plug the unit in and the power it upward, with external power supply because it's a 4 pin Cable, Windows does not show the device in the Device Manager.

The 1394 controller is displayed in Device Manager correctly.

I should add that I tested this sound card with my work laptop and it was found immediately under Windows XP.  Therefore, the cable and the sound card work.

I tried the following without result:

  • Uninstalling the 1394 controller and let Windows find.
  • Definition of the registry key for the controller: EnumerateInactiveLink

None of them worked.



You can try the front steps and check if that resolves.

  • Sound card is not after the downgrade from Vista to Xp on Equium L350

    Hi I have a Finalis L350 laptop computer and I've recently downgraded from Vista to XP.

    All other drivers work very well outside of my sound card.

    Does anyone know where to find the drivers I need for my laptop?

    I know what we call drivers

    VIA AC 97 Audio Controller (WDM and SIS 7018 Audio Driver)

    Only problem is that I don't know what those who work with my Toshiba L350 - 10L

    There are different versions of these drivers. No one knows everything everyone who it is?

    Thanks in advance :)


    If you download the latest driver from realtek site (which belongs to this sound card since it s a realtek card) you can't do anything wrong. Just check www.realtek.com and download the latest being.

  • No sound from the computer with connected generic speakers VISTA SP2. Symbol pregnant shows active with the Digital Audio device.

    I have vista SP2, I connected to generic stereo speakers using the green light at the back of the computer. Vista does not recognize the speakers. The speaker symbol at the bottom right shows "digital (HDMI) 2 high definition output audio device." It shows active. I had this problem before, and VISTA should pick up 'speakers' something to that effect. I have no sound until it captures "speakers". I can't get VISTA to recognize this. It keeps starting with the digital audio device. Don't know what to do, checked all the forums. It should just pick up these simple generic markets good speakers. Before SP2, I lose sound when VISTA is in standby mode. He would then turn off the stereo speaker and replace the digital output device driver... However since SP2 I can't get VISTA to recognize that I have just connected speakers and not a digital output device.

    Yes, when I uninstalled the driver, THEN shut down the computer and then restarted, he picked up the device high definition audio "speakers" good pilot is NOT the

    "digital (HDMI) 2 high definition audio output device that he used to pick up."

    I now have sound!

    I hope that it stores the right driver now as in the past, when VISTA went into sleep mode, it will disable the speakers, and you have to restart every time.

    Thanks for your help.

    You can add instructions to boumediene, the fact that you must RESTART your computer to search for new drivers, once you uninstall.

  • LabVIEW 8.6 sound and measure suite not installed properly under Vista 32 or 64 bit

    I apologize if this isn't the right place for this post, but I need a solution. I recently bought LabVIEW 8.6 Developer Suite with the Suite Sound Measurement and to create a program of NVH testing at my company. I am a newbe to Labview, but I've been a programmer/hardware geek since the days of the TRS-80 model1. Here's my problem. I installed the following developers DVD package on my Office Windows XP Professional and all goes well. I see the following Sound and Vibration Measurement listed under LabVIEW 8.6 able & Automation Explorer, and examples of the Toolbox for work in LabVIEW. When the laptop I bought to do my current job came with a Vista Business Edition 32 bit version installed I found the following problem. On this machine and two other machines to Vista (64-bit and a 32 bit) I tried, the installation does not record the Souind and vibrations under LabVIEW 8.6 Suite and they show Sound and Vibration toolkit as not installed in the examples section. In the Panel by virtue of National Instruments, all 4 machines show the Suite Sound and Vibration as installed 6.0. I have tried to uninstall, reinstall, change in the control panel and reinstall from DVD without change in the result. I really need get the laptop works as it's my real development and test machine. XP Setup is not an option because the machine newly purchased with a high-end sound system and downgrade XP was not available. I'm out of ideas.

    I wanted to close what I got it finally works. This time, I uninstalled the audio and vibration of the LabVIEW control entries in uninstall Vista. Then re-installed and now it works. Before there were three entries, one for the suite, one for the runtime and one for the Toolbox. After having removed all three and reinstall it from the DVD, only subsequently arises, and everything seems to be good.

  • Problem the A300 1EG satellite - horrible latency firewire external sound card


    I wanted to put my Toshiba laptop for music recording through Alesis Multimix Firewire, which is an external firewire sound card.
    All the drivers are up to date and supported by Vista, I have on my computer.
    Always when using Cubase, I get horrible latency and its impossible to work with.

    So this way, I wanted to ask you, what firewire chipset is used in the A300 1EG specifications?
    Could there be a problem with asio drivers or is it inconsistent?

    Thank you


    I think that it s a common firewire port (4-pin) and chip firewire supports the standard IEEE-1394 commune.

    In your case I recommend that you check the information and details posted by the sound card manufacturer.

    Maybe guys something more known on own products and the problems that might appear to use it.

  • Sound card: found new PCI device

    Original title: sound card

    I used to have Windows Vista when it got a major virus and I had to switch to Windows XP. My sound and speakers worked perfectly for a while, when I see that my sound suddenly does not work. Now, whenever I turn on my computer it says find new hardware device PCI. I click on install, but I don't have a CD or anything. Please help me.

  • FireWire PCI (used strictly for external sound card): should I deactivate Windows...

    I have a PCI of SIIG Firewire 1394 (Port 3) adapter installed in my system. I use "strictly" for my card external sound Presonus Firebox. The computer in question; the main function is a Studio of Production Audio. I had chronic problems with MIDI and other issues.

    My questions are:

    (1) in the Network Connections/1394 Connection/Properties/General tab:
    I have to uncheck the Client for Microsoft Networks, file sharing and printers for Microsoft Networks and
    Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) dialog boxes?

    (2) in the Windows Firewall/Advance tab:
    Should I uncheck the 1394 dialog box?

    My goal:

    I hope for a maximum operational efficiency for my sound card for the application it is used for.

    I do not think that network settings 1394 you ask on have something to do with its connected to the 1394 PCI adapter card.

    To find out for sure, change the settings and see if it helps.  You can always change their return.

  • Unable to save since the sound card of Qosmio F30

    to record online music streaming, you must use a special program ripper that rip´s the part of the flow of output and written on the disk, because it s not possible to record sounds that are IN the system.

  • Cut her Out during the reading-Sound Card / Audio Interface necessary?

    I am an artist of the voice with the following configuration:

    Sennheiser MKH 416 P48 U3 micro

    Yamaha HS80M reference monitors

    Mackie Onyx - i 1220 mixer

    Adobe Audition CS6

    Laptop Dell Inspiron 1720 (Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2 GHz, 32-bit)

    Until recently, I could hear everything I've recorded or pre-recorded elements without any problem.  However, now, that I listen to whatever it is, the sound "cuts" (latency issues?).  Counters on hearing is always in motion, but I'll take any sound out of my monitors.  I've upgraded to Windows 7, hoping and thinking that would solve the question, and that the hearing would play well with Windows 7.  This "solution" seemed to have helped, but in the end, it did not solve my problem.  At this point, I think this is my sound card.  My setup of studio quality seems to be too much for my rank of the consumer card.  Because my Mackie has an integrated interface, I didn't that I needed an interface.  However, I'm starting to question that.  Then, part of my question.  Is an audio interface necessary for me even if I have one in my Mackie?  If so, from what I list my system, someone at - it recommendations for interfaces?  If I do not need an interface, I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas as to what is causing the sound "cut" and how to solve.  Any help, thank you for that in advance!


    Finally!  I wrote a response a few hours back, but the fine folks at Adobe took down the site just before I hit send!  Lucky I saved it elsewhere because the "recovered" post was just the first two paragraphs.

    Anyway, take 2.

    Well, first of all, your mixer Mackie Onyx has a firewire interface integrated so, indeed, becomes your sound card.  Your computer is not involved in the process of recording/playback at all (at least not unless you try to do something like monitor via the card from the computer rather than the mixing table).  Therefore, buy another card/audio interface will not help at all.

    Similarly, audio dropouts are not a latency problem, at least not directly.  Latency is the delay in the audio as it does go and return through you its interface (mixer) and computer.  It's more a problem for musicians trying to fight specific because they dub titles.  However, latency controls could have an impact on your problem of abandonment.  Control of latency in hearing is actually control the size of the buffer - and having a larger buffer (which increases latency) also allows reading more protection against glitches when your computer is busy doing something else.  Then... the first thing to try is latency/buffer size increase in the Edition/Preferences/Audio Hardware menu.

    Another thing to check is that you are using the latest drivers of Mackie - visit their site and download/install later if there are few available.  If there is a choice, go to rather than Ms. ASIO drivers if there is little available.

    Also, I mentioned having occupied with other things - for serious sound work stop everything else on your computer from the computer.  Pay special attention to the networking, wifi and anti-virus software, which are usually the priority to catch the processor in your sound work cycles.  Also, make sure that you stop all the system sounds.

    I hope that at least one of these suggestions works for you.

  • Update sound card driver

    Mac 10.10.5 attempt installation of teaching textbooks algebra. Attention box TT tells me that there is no sound card.  No problems with other programs. Customer support TT tells me that I have to update the drivers... where and how can I do this? I thought that I had everything set to update automatically, and all must be current.

    Their support staff obviously have no idea what they are talking about. Is it supposed to be compatible with the version of Mac OS X you are using?
