Go for a good quality cat6 UTP. The ferrites are there to reduce interference generated from ground loops in the shield of the cable.
It's highly unlikely that you'll interfere with anyone's pace maker and you'll reduce the risk of ground loops with an UTP cable.
The 1616m has it's own PSU as you know, so there's no current to speak of and the signals in the cable are most likely balanced. If they're not someone at E-MU/Creative should look into a career in artificial insemination of goats instead of electronics design.

Can the EMU 1212m work with the EMU 1820m Audiodock?


If I remember correctly you'll have to choose between the 1212-board and the 1820m-dock. The internal 1212-board is not needed if you have an 1820 and, as the line inputs/outputs on the 1212 appears as DockA/B and line 1 R/L on the 1820.

I can't get the software/drivers to download to my PC (Dell GX280 w/3gb ram XPpro). I'm trying to use the bundle that came with the purchase of my 1616m and I get a message that says it doesn't see any emu...


Try removing the device driver in Hardware manager, then 'refresh' to tell it to look for a new driver. Keep the CD in the drive, and have windows search it for the driver.

No internal wave signal


sample rate is wrong. You most likely have a bad codec installed or the wrong drivers for the audio card. install direct x if your on windows and install the manufactures site

EMU 1616M sound card


Hi,
I know this is a longshot, so forgive me..
Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit.
I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that..
Let me know how you get on..

HI, I have an emu 1616m soundcard. My laptop recognizes the EMU and the pulgins, but no sound comes out of the monitors.Only from the laptop speakers.


You have to select the EMU as the default playback device in Windows and or select it as the playback device in the software you are using for recording or playback.
Go to Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices icon, and select the Audio tab. There is a drop down box that lists all playback devices. You have to select the EMU in there.
That should get you working.

EMU 1616m (cardbus) not offerring its input sources to Reaper


While you probably solved this already here goes. I'm not familiar with reaper but most audio recording software can select between using windows wdm & ASIO. If you aren't set to ASIO you won't be able to see the Hi-Z (Dock A/Dock B) inputs. It looks like Reaper supports ASIO so that should be fine. If though you are using a program that doesn't support ASIO you need to use the EMU patchmix and 'patch' the input through to a 'wave' channel.

E-Mu 1616m Mirco Dock Problems


LEE - Couple things to try...

First, make sure you have the EDI cable plugged in between the microdock and the sound card. Yeah... sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised.

Secondly, uninstall the software (CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). Once the software is uninstalled, reinstall the software (ONCE AGAIN, CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). I've found that if you do not follow the directions word-for-word, things tend to not work.

If the above doesn't help, there's a chance that the microdock is burnt.

Out of curiosity... you didn't plug/unplug anything from the microdock with the microdock powered on, did you? This could be death, if you did...
