Behringer BCD3000 + Traktor 3 LE wont work on laptop

Hey guys, this one is a real doozy! Its not uncommon but very hard to fix as I have found out. I can get the combo to work fine on my desk top(which is well under the minimum requirements) but on my laptop, I can get the software running smooth (using built in sound card) but as soon as the BCD3000 is plugged in, and it made the primary sound card, it does nothing! Freezes up?

Before I updated the software, I had them working vaguely together but as I would start to play the 1st track, it would play for 10 seconds, pause for 5sec, play for 5 sec, pause for 5 sec etc.... Apparently the update had the "fix" in it but not for my lappy!

My lappy is running really well aside from all this. just had a full back ground service clean up so the thing is running like a dream, accept this compatibility-like issue.

Heres my specs:

  • ASUS A2500D
  • mobile AMD Athlon XP-D 2800+
  • 2.13GHz
  • 1 Gig RAM
  • 60Gig Hard Drive
Ive been trying to find out about updating motherboard drivers but Asus website is as helpful as a bee sting! Good luck guys, it would be great if you could figure out a solution. Kind Regards, Sam

BCD3000 freezes for 5 secs REPEATEDLY!!! Also, a loud sound goes off every now and then witout warning?? Total pain really!!

    BCD3000 will not work with my Dell XPS M1330 vista laptop. I'm using Behringer's production Vista driver, v1.2, and the latest version (3.3.2) of Traktor LE.

    Driver properly installs but the SW does not connect to the mixer. Used to work fine with the older versions on my XP laptop...

    Similar problems here.
    My BCD-3000 works like a dream on my old (well under-powered) desktop, but on my new notebook (AMD Turion processor, 2GB RAM) it plays for a few seconds then freezes, then starts playing again etc ...

    I've been in contact with Behringer a number of times but they don't really seem to care! They keep sending me through the same old process or ignoring me completely!

    Their new Vista driver, was supposed to fix the problem. Guess what? It didn't!

    Traktor works fine by itself until I plug in the BCD-3000. Seems to be still a driver problem, and I suspect it's a problem with the AMD Turion processor?

Deck a wont work anymore

check the midi signals being generated against what your program expects. You'll possibly find a control has ceased working in which case it's likely a bin job. If however the setting is wrong you can normally change it in the program.

Bcd3000 repair manual

Basically you've got no chance. Behringer are very protective and use proprietary parts so when out of warranty most of their items are throw away.

We always insist with our main suppliers that we get a repair and service manual at the time of purchase or we do not buy. This has stopped us buying on several occasions, We do still buy some behringer kit but only because of the three year warranty, we then sell before the three years is up. Most major manufacturers have no problem supplying the manuals however, and this has saved us a lot of money as we do some repairs in house. We do spend many 000s a year so maybe have a little more clout than some.

I am trying to play some music using my laptop and a beringher bcd 3000 dj mixer but when I plug in the mixer the "found new hardware " sign comes up and next there is a pop up which says...

Sometimes just plugging into a different USB port on the back of the laptop will work better than the ones on the sides. I also find using the headphone jack out to a couple RCA mixer channels is far more reliable that USB which often comes and goes. Just a thought. Beringher should have the drivers, you can download and install the universal ASIO drivers as well which can be a little tricky but works for recording - from here:

BCD3000 driver problem

Simple... There is no support for Windows 7 (64 bit) Works with XP and Vista, Either you downgrade to Vista or XP or just wait for Behringer to come up with Windows 7 driver.

Bcd3000 not working

Did you install the Vista Behringer BCD3000 driver?

see this link


You didn't mention your Vista version. Like 32-bit of 64-bit.
This driver is for the 32-bit! 64-bit is not listed(yet).

Behringer BCD3000 + Traktor 3 LE wont work on laptop

Paralelling Digital audio.. Not a good Idea.. Im suprised you didnt kill the Modem/Sound chip in the laptop.. Glad you figured out however. Weve seen a ton of similar issues from People hooking an Analog Hi watt stereo to a digital out put laptop thru headphone jacks..Somthing going to give.. Always remember Modem and Sound on laptops are generally Integrated to the same circuitry..
