EMU 1616 cardbus freezes sound after few minutes

I just got a used EMU 1616 cardbus card for my laptop. The card is connected via an Express Card adapter.

The card installs and plays windows sounds just fine, but when I play a media file for 10 sec to 5 minutes the sound suddenly freezes in a constant tone, untill I close the media player down (Winamp and Windows Media Player) After that the card won't play untill I unplug it and plug it in again or restart the computer.

The adapter has been tested positive with this card.

I have tried the card on an old laptop running Windows XP SP3 without problems.

Please please please help me! Thanks!

SOURCE: loading problem emu1616

First up, I am no expert, but hope I can help.
I think that it is just a matter of following the installation procedures which EMU describe in the booklet.

When you insert the card for the first time, do not install using the hardware wizard.

Instead exit out of it and insert the cd, which will run a seperate install procedure (if autorun is enabled).
During the installation, a splashscreen will pop up (at around 45% complete) saying that the driver is not signed. Choose 'continue anyway'.

This should take care of the digital signature issue.

After this, there might be a problem with the cardbus controller.
This is highlighted on the EMU website.
Thats the problem which I am struggling with and hope someone can help out ..

SOURCE: Doesn't Recognize Card on Start Up/Out of Stand-By

I have experienced this problem too. I have traced it to my Webroot Firewall. During normal operation a firewall warning appeared and asked me to either accept and deny a particular process. If I am not sure about the process I usually deny it. Well, it turns out that a process I denied ended up producing the problem you have. I am not saying that this is your problem but you might try to completely exit your firewall and anti-virus software and see if the sound card returns to normal.

No they don't support the 1616 or 1616m on mac yet. As far as I know only some USB interfaces are supported.

I'm looking for a driver E-MU 1616 m, for Mac


As I can see, there are no Mac drivers for this device yet.
You can however use a (virtual) PC emulator or Bootcamp
to be able to start a suitable Microsoft Windows.

Us-144 working only on high latency!


Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.

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..

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.
