Question about Yamaha GO46 Sound Card
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?
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.
PS. That guy with the first answer is silly, to say the least.
