This happend to my brand new Dell Studio 1737 Vista 32 bit.
I spent days trying to find a solution. Although I got it to work. Install your drivers normally, then restart your machine in Safe Mode. When I did this in Safe Mode I noticed that Vista started installing drivers again automatically. I didn't tell it to look for the drivers, in fact I wasn't even in Safe Mode for that reason. When I restared in Normal Mode all was working perfectly.

Hope this helps someone else.

I have exactly the same problem but on hp tx2650ew tablet notebook with TI firewire expresscard. My system is vista home premium SP1. Short beep sounds when starting windows and then the audio is stopped, but hardware looks installed. M-audio control pannel opens after few clicks, very slugish. Winamp output plugin status shows it cannot fill the sound buffer, and when i close the system i sometimes see some error message that some memory adress cannot be read or write...It's sad but I think it's time to sell this card....(or maybe throw it out, because I've spent a lot of time trying to get it working. All help m-audio stuff is able to provide is keeping telling you not to hotplug their devices blah blah blah....
If you find any solution to this please email me at: q b a s s a (a t) a c n (dot) w a w (dot) p l

Hi isterix!
I also have a 410 on a acer 1502 laptop with xp. I installed the latest driver (5.10.00.5053) and i have sound (after changing sound preferences in panel control) but it makes me peaks in the playback. I think it's due to the driver, that is the same also for windows vista. I'll try to install the previous one and i'll tell you!

Lots of noise when laptop power cord is plugged in


You must be running on pc, or it sounds like you may have a ground loop issue. If you are running a mac, then bus power over the firewire should be enough. If your running on a pc, try getting a pcmcia card with 6 pin firewire ports. If not then your pc laptop will have to power the 410 via ac adapter. That means both should be plugged in tot he wall. Ive gotten that interference before, and gett it on any audio, whether im producing or playing itunes. I find the trick is to reset the 410 via the output window in the top right. It's right above the level knob. Also, try just installing the latest driver, with the 410 disconnected, then launch it from a different file path than the icon.

I still use it for the macbook pro, and its not always top notch. I bought it 3 years ago for 500, and i see what 500 buys nowadays.......MOTU!!!!

Keep me posted.

Keeps blinking


It means its waiting for your computers operating system to recognize it. UNplug it. Update your operating system to the latest version ( free ), and then go to www.m-audio.com and download the latest drivers.

Do not ever install drivers for a device while its connected.
Plus it would help to know whatt kind of computer and what your operating systems is.


Keep me posted.

You should install service pack 2, the go to the m-audio site and upgrade the drivers again. Also, since your computer most likely have a 4 pin firewire, make sure you have the power cqble for the 410 connected. Ofcourse, do not have the 410 connected when upgrade either sp2 or the drivers. make sure you power cycle both devices before reconnecting and attempting to record....

Theres the reason I believe when you installed XP you have install the driver for that model:  XP fails to load the drivers possibly out of date and then it wont load it however you go here and find your one and install that you wont afterwards.
