Question about M-Audio PROJECT MIX I/O Sound Card

Open Question

Project mix i/o not recognized by computer

The device was working fine until I had to unplug the unit from computer and reconnect it. The computer was unable to recognize the device, so I uninstalled the driver, downloaded the latest driver and installed it. The same result. I connected Firewire410 to the same computer and it worked just fine.
Could it be that I damaged Firewire port on Project Mix somehow?

Thank you for your time, Richard

    I've had the same problem. I purchased a Project Mix in August of 2007 for a home studion I was assembling. I connected it fine. When I upgraded my DAW, I tried connecting Project Mix - would not recognize. Tried two other computers - same thing. Sent off for repair, returned 3-4 weeks later - same problem. Received a replacement - same problem (3 PCs tested). Received another one - PC recognized it. I sent it to Black Lion Audio for mods, received it back; now computer doesn't recognize it.

    It's been a year, I'm on my third one, I just spent $500 for improvements, and I've never recorded a single thing, as I have been battling problems since day one.

    Somebody....anybody....please throw me a rope, and help me understand what the heck is going on. I'm at the point that I will pay to have it fixed, but I want it fixed! Or tell me the firewire port is ****, and I have to use tongs, ESD strap, and kill the breaker before unplugging it. Just please give me answers.

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....

keep me posted...

SOURCE: firewire audio problem

Please notice that the firewire 410 is known to have problems with firewire chipsets that are not manufactured by either Texas Instruments or NEC.

This means that it's not enough to buy a Firewire card or to make sure you have it on your motherboard. You have to make sure that the chipset (the chip that actually manage the data transfer) is manufactured either by NEC or TI.

It's not always easy finding out the manufacturer of the chipset, but it's possible (for example my GigaBute motherboard came with a TI chip and it was written on its spec). Good luck!

My webcam has stopped working, It just says 'No video capture device was detected on your system'

The camera device is likely disconnected from computer port. Attempt to establish connection cables by unplugging and reconnecting several times to allow the computer to recognize the activity. The sensitivity of the computer with device would simply recognize a reconnect. Usually, the computer has to be restarted to acquire the connection capacity with prior computers and peripheral devices.

You need to check the router's admin page to make sure the DSL/Cable modem is being recognized properly. This can happen when unplugging the devices. Ck your routers user manual for login instructions. Should be default IP address of router typed into internet explorer browser then you need login/password (like admin/admin) then check the status to see if router/modem are talking to each other. Probably good idea to unplug both devices at the same time and then power back up. I can be more specific if necessary.

Hope that helps,

My brand new mixmax won't power on

How unfortunate. Its probably a malfunction with your player. When I plug my daughters mix max into the usb it says do not remove. I waited and removed it anyway and it worked fine. I suggest you take it back and get a new one.

No device recognized when connected to computer

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected

Hi All,
I had the same problem and was going crazy trying to figure this out, but I found that I had installed the GPX mw3816 on my bottom USB port and was trying to plug it into the port above it, because I had plugged another unit into the bottom port, but I switched the ports and it immediately installed. This is another reason, I am thinking of dumping windows and moving to a MAC. Peace!
