Question about Yamaha GO46 Sound Card

Yamaha GO46 is not recognized as an audio device - wdm driver not instaled properly

I installed my GO46 in a Intel dual core 2.0, and it doesn`t assume it as an audio device. It appears as a firewire device, but the WMD drivers doesn,t make the device work....i have tried everything with the instalation, even format the computer because i thougt it was conflit with the creative sound blaster drivers, but it still don`t work.

At the first time it seems to be software, but now i think it may be of the product.

Anyone knows why this product was discontinued by yamaha?

    I have a simular problem with the go46. it seems like the problem
    occured over night. the day before everything was fine. the next day after a finished a recording it wasn't possible to play audio-files. absolutly no sound. it's still possible to route an spdif signal to the outputs, though. When I unplug and replug the firewire cabel everything seems normal again for a while. audio files will play for a few seconds and then .... silence again. Unfortunatly I can't check the device on my notebook as it won't be recognized on the 4-Pin connector (another annoying problem). So my assumption was also that it's has something to do with IRQ Sharing. It might be possible that the system changed some IRQ Settings at one time. I use Windows XP SP2. I uninstalled all PCI Cards of my computer including the RME9632 and a network card but don't help either. I just don't have any further ideas anymore and I already assume that the interface is damaged. Maybe it's the firmware and an update of it would help but I don't know where to get the software. I didn't find anything on the yamaha site. So if anyone has any other ideas please let me know.

    I have the same issue with my GO46 on Vista 64.  It works fine on Mac Leopard though, so I know there's nothing wrong with the hardware.  Thank goodness I'm NOT a PC (jab at MS's stupid commercials).

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem. My Yamaha GO46 just stopped being recognized by the computer one day. The same behaviour is happens with my desktop and notebook, so it seams to be something with the audio card.

    I tried to reinstall the driver (v1.00 - for XP - downloaded today from yamaha web site) and now, when the installer ask to connect the audio card to the PC, the card is not recognized anymore, in both computers.

    I tried to change the IRG sharing configurantions, and disable the audio device as your suggestion, but I could not find anything related to audio cards or to the IEEE 1394 on my BIOS. My motherboard is a ASUS P5BDeluxe.



    It is amazing how few information one find on the internet regarding GO46 troubleshooting.

    To make it worse, I am from Brazil and, considering that this audio card is not selled here, the company "Yamaha Brasil" is telling that this product is not supported by their local authorized technicians.

    So, anything you could helpme will be very useful.

    Many thanks,

    Thiago Santos

    Hi,

    I finally found the IEEE 1394 and HD Audio Controller on my computer BIOS, and tried to disabled /re-enable them in alternated configuration, without sucess. I could verify the "Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller", coming and going from the device manger,as I enabeld/diabled on the BIOS, but I cant change any IRQ setgins.

    Tried to update the driver through windows update, but it says that my version is the most recent.

    So, I run out off alternatives. I will keep trying to speek with someone from Yamaha here.

    If anyone have any sugestion or a similar issue, I will be very happy to hear!

    Thanks a lot.

    I spoke with Yamaha Brasil and they are now starting to support GO46 in Brasil, so I will be the first support case.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Yamaha officilly told me that my GO46 is dead. It has a damage on the firewire circuit, caused probably by a voltage peak, that cannot be fixed.

    What is strange is that I have a stabilizer and my desktop did not present any other problem, but, I have no choice than use it as a very expensive paperweight.

    So, I am wondering - if in other audio interfaces have the same problem, the damage should not be fixable??

    Cheers,

Get a new soundcard GO46 is a bag of trouble. I had to get a special Firewire Card with a Texas Instrument chip, since the cheap internal firewire interfaces don't work with this card. Also make sure you are not running XP64, since it is not supported. good luck

Install the yamaha driver from yamahasynth.com. I used the newer vista driver on xp and it works. Then install these two patches: WindowsXP-KB885222-v2-x86-ENU.exe, WindowsXP-KB896256-v4-x86-ENU.exe (ENU is for english Windows). If you have sp 1 all should work without patches (I don't so it's somebody elses theory.) If you have sp 2 these two patches installed after the yamaha driver = works. If you have sp 3 your in for some silly **** because windows recognizes these patches as obsolete and doesn't install automatically. At that point you could try looking at RME page for a work-around, and I think that Mackie provides a similar solution for an onyx mixer. Google if you want to, install sp 1 or 2 if you must.
And oh: DON'T PANIC.
Cheers,
MASAD
PS. That guy with the first answer is silly, to say the least.

  1. It may be hardware problem (IRQ sharing problem). First go to PC's bios setting and disable "Audio Device" by searching options. Try to change sound card with other Pci slot (white slot).
  2. To get it's latest driver, get free register on www.driverguide.com and after signing in type "yamaha GO46" in search bar on this site. Don't forget to vote me. Thanks

You need to install the audio driver for your motherboard. Use the computer/motherboard support cd to install the driver.

Sound doesnt come out from guitar link UCG102


what you need to do is install the asio4all driver then select file, adio midi settings and where it says behringer audio codec click the arrow and select asio4all then click the configure button and in the wdm list you must activate all the items under audio codec and the audio speaker under High Definition audio device this will allow it to work through the speakers, or just leave it how it is and plug in a set of headphones. make note though that your speakers will play nothing else but the guitar sound. all other music internet sounds, the lot will no longer work as your ucg102 is high jacking your sound card to produce the sound from your guitar. hope this helps.

Yamaha GO46 firewire audio interface


Hi. It might be a bit late, but the solution to your problem is the fact that the phones level is dependent on output 3-4. If you turn 3-4 all the way up you should be able to hear something. You might want to route all the outputs to the digital mixer.

Powerbook doesn't recognize Yamaha GO46 FW interface


Hello. I had the same problem and solved by mere casuality. If you disconnect the AC power adaptor and let the Firewire connection to be the only power supplier, then the GO46 will be inmediately recognised by the "Preferences -> Sound" panel of the G4.

Hope I've been helpful. Bye.

Audio driver installation failed from mother board cd


The most common solution was this: open device manager click "system devices" disable "microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio" uninstall "UAA bus driver" make rescan devices (Note: Not all had this step. You may want to skip it.) D.W. install realtek driver the realtek driver includes the UAA driver too.Hope this helps.
