Question about E-Mu 1616M Sound Card

1 Answer

The microdock will not connect properly..

Hi, I am having problem with my microdock. About 25 % of the times I try to connect it to my Pcmcia card it will not find the microdock. I then try to reconnect it in all kind of ways. When I get this error some of the lights on the microdoc is lighted up and it is almost always different lights that is shining. Even the red phantom power light can shine even that this function is set off. When the Microdock is connected properly the lights goes out and only the blue E-MU logo is illuminated. I try the following things when the Microdock wont connect: 1. Turning the Microdock off wait for half a minute and then turning it on again. 2. Removing the PCMCIA-card via the safe remove taskbar icon. Reconnecting the PC-card again and then when the dsp patchbay has been started I connect the Microdock again. 3. Restore default via Start Meny --> Creative Proffesional -->E-muPatchMix DSP --> Restore Defaults. Restart the computer and try to reconnect again. 4. The same as nr 3 but without turning off the microdoc. 5. Changing the EDI Cable to a normal Lan cable. Some times I get it to work when I change the EDI cable. This is very strange because when the Microdock wont connect I change the EDI cable and then it starts working again. I then use the second cable as long as it works and when it stops working I change to the E-MU EDI Cable. I have also tried a third cable when the the other two wont work. But mostly it doesn't work to change the EDI cable and I try all the things I mentioned above. Sometimes for an hour and sometimes in 5 minutes and then suddenly when I almost lost hope it starts working. It is so frustrating that I don't know what causes the problem and if it is something special that I do when it starts working again. I also have another problem. When I have used the PCMCIA-card with the microdoc for hours and sometimes just 30 minutes it just stops working. Everything in the patchMix just dies. Even the PCMAICA-card wont work. I then have to restart my computer and then the PCMCIA-card will work again, but the microdoc wont connect as usual. Equipment i use. E-MU 1616, with PCMCIA-Card with latest drives from E-MU website. Computer. IBM Lenovo X60s, Intel Core Duo 1.6 GHz, 1,5 Gb Ram, 320 Gb Harddrive Software: Windows XP SP3 Swedish, Cubase SX3, Amplitube Thank you for your help. Please tell me if you have a problem with your E-MU 1616 and will do my best to help you. I have the exact same problems. Once, I had to uninstall/reinstall the drivers and patchmix application 3 times before I could get it to work. And the microdock isn't recognize, once more...

My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.
Thank You

PCMCIA slot and DVD/CD


This is kind of a multi tier question answer that requires you do some diagnostic. First, is the PCMCIA slot and DVDrom on the same side of the computer? Also, do you always use the PCMCIA slot? First diagnostic is to try and boot off a XP cd or recovery cd you should have got w/ the computer to see if the DVDrom is in fact not functioning. Next, if you have the ability to try a different PCMCIA card in the slot that would be helpful.

There is a very good chance the PCMCIA slot damaged your board if you use a card all the time as some devices out there can get REALLY hot and do some internal damage.

How can I connect a wireless adapter to my toshiba portege 660 cdt as there is not a port on it for the usb to fit in to


Hi,

I am assuming that your wireless adapter is USB and that your Toshiba Portege 660 CDT has a PCMCIA slot. If yes then you would need something like a PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter as shown here. The added advantage is that you would have an extra USB port. Just pls make sure that the PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Alternately, you can try swapping your USB WiFi for a PCMCIA version similar to this. Again, pls make sure that the PCMCIA Wireless network card you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

E-Mu 1616m Mirco Dock Problems


LEE - Couple things to try...

First, make sure you have the EDI cable plugged in between the microdock and the sound card. Yeah... sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised.

Secondly, uninstall the software (CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). Once the software is uninstalled, reinstall the software (ONCE AGAIN, CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). I've found that if you do not follow the directions word-for-word, things tend to not work.

If the above doesn't help, there's a chance that the microdock is burnt.

Out of curiosity... you didn't plug/unplug anything from the microdock with the microdock powered on, did you? This could be death, if you did...

Acer & Win2k new Device PCMCIA MTD-0002


Try using this Unknown Devices program to identify the hardware. Then search the internet for the correct driver.

If this does not solve the problem then check with the computer manufacturer for a BIOS upgrade that could repair the problem.

The manufacturer's web site may also have documentation that identifies this unique problem.

PanasonicToughbook CF-27: PCMCIA/USB 2.0 Card


Hi,
Unless you can use external power to the usb 2.0 pcmcia card, a CF-27 probly won't handle the load.
Their power adapters are only 15V and the unit itself is a P2 433 at best. It's just pulling too much power.
Sorry
Good luck
