Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Sound Card
I have installed the drivers via the installation wizard, but Vista still attempts to run the driver-finding tool. When it does this, it cannot find the correct drivers even when I point it to the exact folder labeled "driver" from the Lexicon driver download. So usually I just tell it to stop looking for the driver.
However, when I plug in the Omega, Vista will usually recognize it to start, but then several minutes in, will think it is an unknown device; at which point the Omega becomes useless (sometimes even after a reset)
Is there ANY way to get Vista's driver tool to recognize the Omega driver and finally make it work consistently?
I've been struggling with this issue for about a week. My unit was locking up increasingly more often.
Two things I've noticed about my Lexicon interface:
1. Seems to be excessively hot.
2. The unit is not vented.
Yesterday, after reading a comment about the solder possibly being the problem, losing conductivity as the units warms up. I decided to run my Lexicon with the plastic case removed.
Since removing the the case, i have only had one instance where the sound stopped working, which i believe was a problem with Cubase in that instance.
I'm not sure if removing the case to keep the unit cooler is the solution. I may have improved a connection somewhere in the process of opening up the unit.
I can say that I went from getting a "new hardware found" message every two minutes to having virtually no problems since removing the case.
My next step will be to drill about 50 holes in the case to vent it before attempting to use the case again.
Best of luck to ya!!!

You said the magic phrase premiume HOME computer...
and the key word VISTA.
I've heard of VISTA pro running this but the home version is really not that robust for the type of gear you have there.
vista just has to many bugs.
go back to xp pro sp2 for good results.

I've had this problem and similar ones. Following these steps seems to help:
Starting Cubase before switching on the Omega.
Go to 'Devices' and then 'Device Set-up'. Make sure you're in the 'VST Audio System' part of the menu. Make sure the Omega is selected as the ASIO driver - if not, switch it. Then click on 'Set to Defaults', then 'Apply' and 'OK'.
Or re-setting the Omega sometimes helps too.
It's a pain, though.
