RE Traktor 3 + BCD3000

This is a re-post- I did not fix the prob before...

The problem is - major audio drop outs during playback with the above hardware/software combination. After extensive research, it pretty much comes down to an issue with my notebook hardware.

It use to work fine intermitantly. 1 day I could play 5 hours straight no worries.The next it would freeze during playback with CPU @ 100%!! Then I got the pauses/ dropouts whilst playing 1 song. Now I have completely reinstalled my whole system, updated all drivers for everything (system,software and external midi device drivers) and it seems worse off!!! Just drops out for a second every few seconds. I was watching my CPU and it would spike during dropouts. Ive literally tried everything!!! I am a trainee computer techie and have access to great knowledge and resources but still haven't found a solution. I'm assuming its related to Beringer's drivers being not so universal? Also media player cant play full songs anymore? man this sux! Almost ready to convert to vinyl DJing!!!

My set up is as follows.

Asus A2500D Notebook (A2D)
Mobile AMD Athlon XP-M 2.16 Ghz CPU
1 Gig RAM
80 Gig Hdd
SiS PCI to USB Controller?? if that helps...
DMA controller appears to have no drivers installed in Device manager??

If you guys can work this out, I will take my hat off to ya's. I have spent more than 6 months working this out!!

Good luck and thank you guys in advance. I spend a lot of time in my job giving free advice so it would be lovely for karma to come my way for a change haha Any help will be passed on to fellow sufferers!

Thank you kindly!

    Turns out I was correct about the SiS PCI to USB chipset. They do **** for USB audio device applications. I bypassed the SiS chipset by plugging in a Gigatech PCMCIA card w/ USB ports into my laptop. Now it runs like a dream! I spent 6 months of diagnosis and research to figure this one out so I hope this helps others with similar issues!

    Thanks again guys!

    Yeah like I said, the issue was the SiS chipset. I pulled the whole CPU out, cleaned the fan, checked its bearings, reapplied the heat sink paste and still had the issue. Through in the PCMCIA card and it works like a dream now.

    Turns out the SiS chipset cant handle the amount of DATA that was pumping in and out of it. Thank god for USB - PCMCIA cards! Gutted it took so long to figure it out though! Even the guys at work that have been techs for 15+ years couldn't work this one out....

    Cheers for your time.

    The PCMCIA card fixed the problem for a while. Suddenly the other day, my the CPU meter in Traktor 3 started flickering between 0 - 1/2 way and the playback was lagging terribly! As soon as the BCD3000 is disconnected, my system runs like a dream. Although my system is only 2.4Ghz Athlon w/ 1 gig ram, it runs better than most of the new systems i build at work.

    Its tough to say but I'm getting the idea that the BCD is stuffing the USB - BUS in my system. It also worries me that the BCD power supply does not have earth pin for the wall plug.... makes you wonder...

    any thoughts anyone?

As the processor usage goes up to 100% I personally would check the fan on the processor. Does it seem to be running, does it speed up when the CPU goes to 100%.
I had this with graphics cards similar fault caused by the lubricant /grease on the fan spindle drying out and causing the fan to stick or stop, and then the graphics GPU getting too hot. Also check the heatsink / vents where the air from the fan blows out.
Just a thought.

S/PDIF port

You probably need to enable the port. This is in the Playback Audio Device control Panel. Connect your cable between the computer and the audio receiver (audio in port). With Windows 7, click on Start > Control Panel. Then go to Hardware and Sound. Click on Manage Audio Devices. Under the Playback tab, look to see what devices are listed. If you do not see a optical audio device, right click on the window and select Show Disabled Devices. Then right click on the Optical Port option and make it the default. (Alternatively, left click and use the drop down menu below.) Click Apply to confirm this.

In Windows 8, use the Charms menu from the Desktop (Windows Key + C). Choose Settings and then the Control Panel. Then follow the above directions.

If you have a different OS, please add a comment with that information. I hope this helps.

My laptop has no audio output device and playback device

No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)'s quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
Copy the above address in the browser, replace + with dots....visit my support page.

all the best...

Behringer BCD3000 + Traktor 3 LE wont work on laptop

Paralelling Digital audio.. Not a good Idea.. Im suprised you didnt kill the Modem/Sound chip in the laptop.. Glad you figured out however. Weve seen a ton of similar issues from People hooking an Analog Hi watt stereo to a digital out put laptop thru headphone jacks..Somthing going to give.. Always remember Modem and Sound on laptops are generally Integrated to the same circuitry..
