    Default Firewire 410 Sound Playback Problem

    Hi, i have had my firewire 410 for about 5 years now.

    I have used it on a medion computer with XP and it has worked great.

    that medion is now 9 years old and slowly breaking so i bought a new computer:

    Gateway GT5678
    Vista 64 bit SP 1
    Quad Core 2.4 Ghz
    4 Gigs Ram
    PciExpress Firewire Card
    M-Audio firewire 410

    I downloaded the beta driver for my device

    I ran it, everything went fine.i shut down my computer. i plug in my device, and reboot.

    The firmware updates fine, and so i click on the Tray icon. everything shows up for the control panel, looks normal.

    this is where my problem starts.

    When connect a mic, sound registers as incoming on line 1 in the control panel. when i try to play a sound file off my computer , the program wont play it. even when i change the default playback device to "m audio multichanel"

    i have followed all instructions on this forum, as well as read the FAQ and the Firewire Troubleshooting Guide . i have tried re installing it 3 times now.

    the only reason i bought this computer was to record my music. i literally spent my last penny on it, which sucks.

    i really need it to work.

    please help me.

    i might add i do not have internet connection on that new computer. i use this laptop, and transfer everything to that new computer Viz usb flash card.

    thank you

    Maybe this problem and solution of mine also applies to your situation? LOL I still have to do the dirty turn off/on hack after each reboot and no m-audio rep has ansered there. But it helps.

    What audio software are you running? Do you see the output meters moving in the Firewire Control Panel? Have you read through the Firewire Troubleshooting Guide .
