UCA202 no longer recognized after new drivers installed.
Hi, hopefully you can help. I use Virtual DJ and was
having problems with the program freezing during the middle of a song. That led
me to install the updated drivers for my UCA202 direct from behringer's site, as well as making sure my internal sound cards and direct x were updated as well. When I did the behringer update,
windows (vista 32 bit) no longer recognizes it as a sound device, it's now a USB device and I
can't enable it for playback of any other programs. (I can enable it as ASIO in
VDJ though, but that kind of solves one problem while creating one that's much
worse.) I've searched everywhere for a solution with no luck. Hoping for a
quick solution, need this to work for a wedding this weekend. (BTW, this is on
an HP pavillion laptop, lots of RAM, no other problems)

You can still download the drivers and firmware from the dell site for the dj, so you can set up your new computer to work with the dj. (I'm hearing VIsta is not compatible. Not surprising... )One part of the software is the Dell DJ Explorer. It simply opens a window and recognizes your dj. (Make sure it is on and connected)
If DJ Explorer says 'not connected' then right click and click refresh. When it recognizes the DJ, it will say the name you named your dj. Open that like a regular folder and it should read your dj and list all the songs on it. Then simply copy and paste songs to another folder you open on your computer screen; probably should use your My Music folder but that's your choice.
Now that music is saved back onto your computer. Hope that works for you.
A word about the Duebox or Dudebox program and company. I hope they ARE out of business as they scammed me. I checked into it awhile back for a better way to move music around on my 4 DJs and computer, and then bought it. It worked just as they said... at first. I used it to program my first DJ, then basically copied my songs and playlists to the other three (I have one in the house and one in each of our cars and our RV) Great! I'm happy! Then a few weeks or months later, tried to use it again to update, and was told that I could ONLY use it on ONE DJ, and the one I had just plugged in was not the one it recognized. I would have to buy a copy of Duebox for EACH DJ. Bottom line is I no longer support or care much for Duebox, and if they went out of business, then there really is such a thing as karma. I hate scammers.
Found the answer on Dell Forums. A lot of Dell DJ folks have been having the same issues. The problem is with Windows Media Player (shock). The Windows driver dated 2006 is installing itself and taking over, not allowing Dell's 2005 driver to work. The bottom line is the DJ will dock but not be recognized by your computer, Windows Media Player, or Yahoo Music Jukebox.
To check to see if this is the issue dock your DJ then click on start, right click on my computer, and then hit properties. Click on hardware tab and go to device manager. Look for portable devices on the list. You will likely see your DJ with a yellow (!) next to it. Right click on the DJ and hit properties again, then look in the driver tab to see what driver is listed. If you see a driver with the date 2006 or newer, then Windows is screwing you up.
The only way I've found to fix this is to either uninstall Windows Media Player or go back to an old enough version that the 2006 driver is not in the system. The 2006 driver is from Microsoft and somehow it interfers with the proper driver, which is from Dell and should be dated either 2004 or 2005. Once Windows is uninstalled completely, or back to an old enough version that you are safe (I am not sure how far back you must go, I just uninstalled the darn thing completely), you need to uninstall the Dell driver then go to Dell's website and reinstall the latest. Also make sure you have the latest firmware.
It sounds like a lot of work but it honestly took me longer to type this note that to do it and I don't have a clue what I'm doing. It's better than throwing away your DJ. From the comments I saw on the Dell Forum, Dell is not aware of the issue and isn't much help. Many people spent hours on the phone with Dell support only to hit a dead end and get the recommendation to replace the device.
Hope this helps all. A huge thank you to the folks over all Dell Forum who figured out the solution despite Dell's technical assistance.
