I am trying to connect a Minidisc Deck (MDS-PC2) to my PC. I have an optical cable running from the optical output of the deck to my PC spdif input. I have another optical cable running from the deck optical input 1 to a separate SPDIF add-on bracket that is connected to the motherboard via its SPDIF header internally.
My sound works fine otherwise, and the deck outputs sound via the headphone jack, so both machines are working correctly. The deck is set to accept the optical 1 input, which the motherboard is connected to. I get no sound, in Audacity or Windows Sound Recorder, from the deck. I have set eh Realtek Audio Manager settings, in the Digital In/OUT settings to:
Ouptut Sampling Rate - 44.1 Khz (the Minidisc ATRAC rate, I believe) Output Source - Output Digital Audio Source
and the status says:
Lock PCM 44.1Khz Valid No Copy
Can anybody help, I need to get this working so I can record Minidisc audio from the deck to WAV files on my PC for film editing.

The link below is a direct link to your model. It state's that there are 2 slots in your computer and that it will hold a maximum of 2 Gigabytes (1 Gigabyte in each slot). The Memory Type is: DDR2 PC2-3200 or DDR2 PC2-4200
If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.
It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.
