M-audio 410 problem with vista

Ive got vista now, downloaded the soundcard driver for vista and successfully installed it. The problem now is recording from line-in, mics, instruments and turntables.. The sound is crackling bad and i cant figure it out...? i havent had any problems with this before, on XP so I dont know if i should install XP again or if its a way to fix this. Maybe there is a better driver i can download or something.. I appreciate any tip. Thanks

    The computer is 2008 model, customized and muuuch better than my former 2002 Dell computer where 410 worked well without any trouble for many years. I have gotten the same coment from many friends; that Vista sucks.. seems like it is what it is. I will try to get XP back on, but in the meantime look for sollutions, cuz its weird that the newest oprative system from windows is worse than the former ones.. hmm



    thanks

How old is your system
Vista was made for newer pc's and still has some glitches.
Also can slow pc down if they are not compatible
You may want your xp back on

    Like I said vista still has a lot of glitches

    yes I would put my xp back on

    vista is probably not compatible with the soundcard in your pc.

    I usually tell people if there system did'nt come with vista don't put it on

    Also make sure you know what your video audio and network drivers are before returning to xp

    just in case you lose them

    to find out wht they are

    right click my computer

    properties

    hardware

    and then device

    you'll find all your driver types there

    if you happen to notice your audio has ? or ! mark you may want to click and update driver to see if that was the problem if problem still persist get rid of vista

Emagig emi6/2m driver???


I'm sorry, but since Apple developed the driver for EMI 6 2, you will never find an official driver for windows Vista because they simply won't do it. On the other hand, I started to do some digging and haven't been very successful until now, but you can still google your problem and hope that some programmer had the same problem you had and wrote himself a driver for the device.

I can't find a soundmax Integrated Audio driver for Win7 Ultimate OS. I would like to have one before I upgrade my Win XP to Win7 since it was the recommendation of Win7 compatibility Advisor. Thanks...


First, shame on Microsoft! Second, many are having the same issue you are now experiencing. What has worked is installing the Vista driver package.


Click on the link below and download the file.
Go to device manager and uninstall the current driver for Soundmax Intergrated Audio soundcard.
Double click on the downloaded program to install your soundcard driver.
If the program has issues installing the driver (due to incompatibility with Windows 7) go back to the device manager and right-click on the Soundmax Integrated Audio soudcard
Select Update driver
When searching for the updated driver, direct the search (or select manual search) to the folder the file created when you double clicked on it (swsetup>Sp36530>i386>Vista)
This should enable your soundcard.

Best of luck!

Can't install m-audio firewire


It doesn't 64-bit windows. (no driver) this is part of why people who are serious about audio tend to use macs.

You can install 32-bit windows, then the included drivers will work.

Hello have you disabled all the built on sound cards on your computers? This is a known problem. If you are going to use a great product like M-audio disable any onboard audio card. Then try to use the 410 system. If you still have the problem try changing the latency to 4-5
