    I am running the fa-66 on a new dell with an i7 cpu, 6 gigs ram and the pops and drops are constant at all buffer sizes.

Make sure it's set to ASIO driver instead of WDM, that was the problem for me. and change the buffer size to less when accessed from control panel>edirol fa-66 or set the WDM and ASIO settings to smaller (lower buffer size = not too much work for computer = no dropouts) and in the power sdr setup window and the dsp tab, put the buffer size to 4096. hope this helps.

Hello, I was looking to upgrade the ram in my old dell 5150. The specs say you can use a Max of 4 1 gig sticks yet these specs where released prior to windows 7 ultimate which uses far more ram. What are...


Check www.crucial.com. Use the downloadable program to analyze your system or use the interactive menu system to explore your options.

Check online forums using google searches for terms like 'dell 5150 memory upgrade'. Sometimes, the maximum in the manual is not the real maximum. My Dimension 1000 laptop accepted a certain 1 GB card when the manual said the max was 256MB. Still running it after nearly ten years. The laptop was **** with 512MB (256 built-in and 256 add-on card) but the gf uses it every day.

Hi, I can't install driver for FA-66, when it comes to the window PLEASE CONNECT THE FA-66 to your comp and turn the power on....I do that but than nothing is happening...any solutions??? thanks...


Check in "programs and features and make sure there is no software already installed for your unit. If there is unistall it and start over. I am guessing you are installing from a CD? You may have parts of previous installs that are conflicting with the completion. This Roland's site for downloads and they also have a support section.

How to install hyper v on dell 2650. Can Windows 2008 with hyper v be installed on a Dell 2650?


Hello,

Yes, Server 2008 will install on the 2650 as long as you make sure you have enough RAM and hard drive space. Once you have Server 08 installed, you will have a to-do list to help with setting up hyper-v.

Good Luck

Edirol fa-66


1.i gained info about the mains supply data (9 volts 2 a, minus pole in the center pole of the plug) which is a quite exotic supply in comparison to standard devices with 12 volts an plus pole in the center pole ...
the fa 66 didn't work , when connected by 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 firewire cable .
my laptop only has a small 4 pole socket.
therefore i suppose that through this 4-pole socket and cable there was no current lead through.

after additionally connecting the fa-66 with mains supply AND 4 to 6 (fa 66 side) cable ... it finally worked.
the manufacturer should print all relevant data directly to the fa 66 device near by the socket und also print "FA-66" onto the supply ... because i own lots of alike-looking supplys and it's a drag to find out which ist good for what...
;-)

Install Win XP SP 2


Yes you can, Do I recomend it, no, Why?

Windows easily uses up to 756MB of RAM to run the O/S alone but can run at a minimum of 512MB.

I have personally seen it run on as low as a 900Mhz processor, 256MB of RAM and on a 10 gig hard drive.

If you decide to install windows XP on the specs you describe above please note the following.

1. System will be very slow and have lengthy start up times.

2. Applications may crash or take a long time to open.

3. With all the updates for WinXP you will easily use 8 gigs for installing XP and its updates. Not to mention whatever software you will use/install.

4. On a system with those low specs, you probably have a low end video card whcih may result in: A. chooppy windows, screen freezing, system crashes and lock ups, low video graphics all around.


I would probably go with windows 2000 instead. If your bent on having XP, at least upgrade the RAM to as much as possible. Then install windows and only install the programs you really need, remove any other junk.

Hope this is of some help to you, good luck

Problem with FA-66


Judging from the wiring diagram on the cover, the headphones are connected to the same output lines as 1 & 2. When you increase or lower the monitors. So do the headsets. The only way to get around it is to find a pair of headsets with at volume control into the wiring of the headsets or plug the monitors into outputs 3 & 4.


Here is the book I saw

Memory module


Your motherboard supports 533MHz memory modules, no more. If you put anything higher in, it will work, but only at the speed of 533MHz, so there's not much point in aiming any higher. Just make sure what you're buying is a DDR2 533MHz memory module, and it's best to get them in increments of 2. If you have 4 slots on your motherboard, get another 2x512MB modules of RAM. If you're running Windows Vista, it might be worth considering 2x1GB modules. I think that pretty much covers your question, if you have anything else to ask, feel free to reply.
