Question about E-Mu 1820M Sound Card

1 Answer

I've got the same damn problem

I've never had a problem with my 1820m until I had to format my computer and install everything again. Now when Windows XP loads the drivers it pauses for a long time, all the lights come on and stay on. Before, all lights used to come on before going off, leaving on the few according to my settings.

I have found that if I leave my computer on for 30 mins then enter the patchmix program before the Session Settings, then alter the frequency from 44.1 to 48khz (or back) before pressing OK, the dock suddenly loads and is fine.

I'm starting to think this is a software problem. Damn Emu, they create a great piece of hardware, stop making it straight away, then don't provide adequate drivers.

Download and install the latest V2.1 Patchmix DSP Application and also the V2.1 Audio System Driver from EMU at

http://www.emu.com/support/files/download2.asp?Centric=760&Platform=1

Have you been downloading and applying any updates from Microsoft recently? If you have downloaded and installed both of the above then you should check the function of the board via System manager and Device Manager to see if there are any errors or conflicts showing and if so resolve them.

As you say it takes a long time to load initially you may want to uninstall the application and driver then run a registry clean to make sure that there are not multiple instances of the EMU in the registry as this will cause contention issues that could exhibit the behaviour that you are seeing. Ashampoo at www.ashampoo.com will do an excellent job if you need one you can do it for free for 30 days.

You may also be experiencing a lack of memory in the system – you can never have enough, your hard disk may be nearing capacity and also may need defragmenting – again the Ashampoo will do an excellent job. Also take a look at how much swap space is allocated and increase its size and change it’s location to a quiet disk if you can – preferably not one being hammered with sound data.

Then reinstall the EMU driver and app.

Check the drivers u have installed try to see if any need updating or are no compat.

How to wipe hard drive and clean install windows 7


Sounds like you may have purchased a "Windows 7 upgrade" (whatever version Home/Pro,) version....

now that win7 is on it, you can boot from the CD, choose the "repair my computer" option, then choose the Advanced Startup repair options....and you can use the command window to re-format, or delete the partition and and re-format the drive....then start-over with a clean disk.

article to read on getting it to 'authenticate' if you DID buy Upgrade media and you want to do a clean install, (normally it won't without some tweaking.)

I am returning a computer I've used for aboput a month. How do I erase the hard drive first?


If you mean wiping out all the data and operating system then -
This is generally howyour format the hard disk and install Windows.
First you need a Windows XP or Windows Vista installation CD and the productinstallation code, which is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of yourlaptop.
Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions toinstall Windows.
Next Delete the existing Windows partition.
Next Create a new partition.
Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quickformat. This will prepare the Windows for a clean install.
If you do not wish to continue installing Windows then Exit and shut down the computer.

Support cd


All of the drivers are available on Intel's support site - using a different computer, you can use Nero, PowerISO, etc to make an image of your windows disk; Download the motherboard drivers on the same computer, then download and use WinLite - you can automate the windows installation, include drivers and Windows Update Patches, and burn it all onto a boot-able disk! (Basically, make your own System Recovery CD)

MY sansa connect 4gp crashes my computer


Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
