    The same thing happened to me.

    Think it may have something to do with the IRQ which it is set to, in my case IRQ20.

    Have read that there are some compatability issues with this card in 'soundonsound' magazine, (the article about it was of the reasons I was swayed to buy it - hi spec) and also listed on the EMU website.

    Disappointing and frustrating so if someone has a workaround or has dealt with the same issues, please throw some light on it ..

It could be down to the vsts when loading cubase.
Do you have emulator or proteus as a vst in cubase?
I was in the same boat.
BlueScreen/Restart when loading cubase vsts.
Hate to say it, but in the end I got a new computer (not because of this - i needed an upgrade anyway!).

I think it is a hardware/resources problem with the cardbus controller, not having enough bandwidth dedicated to the cardbus/audiocard, but as I say I'm no expert ..

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 ..

Most times on laptops the product key for windows is on a sticker on the laptop itself. As long as its a brand name and loaded at the factory originally their will be the sticker under it. Look for the Microsoft logo (holographic) and the product key number will be there. Though what your describing is odd as windows does not have a trial version of the OS.

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.
