Question about Yamaha GO46 Sound Card

Powerbook doesn't recognize Yamaha GO46 FW interface

Hi,

I just bought a Yamaha GO46 yesterday. I want to use it with my  Powerbook G4.

I followed all instructions but when I go to "Sound" in "preferences"
the only thing I can select is "built in audio" and "go 46" is not
visible or selectable.
The GO46 is visible in the "Systemprofile" window so I think the
device is not broken.

Is there some one who can help me out ?

Perhaps I need another driver ?

NOTE: My superdrive is broken so I had to install the "go 46 control
panel" with a driver from I downloaded from yamahasynth.com. Maybe
this has something to do with my problem ?

    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.



    Anyone knows why this product was discontinued by yamaha?

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.

Can I use a password reset disk to change the password on a powerbook g4?


Your absolute best bet is to re-install the system operation system.OS 10.5 is your brts bet. then follow the instructions and answer all of the needed information. Because I live alone and my computer is never out of my personal living area, I never instal a password. But this is your choice also.

Turn on my powerbook G4 but there isn't a chime and nothing comes on the lcd screen


If there's no chime, your problem could be anything from a dead battery or bad AC adapter to a dead logic board.
Does the tip of the adapter on your AC connector light up? If not, that's a problem.
When you push the button on the battery, do you get at least two glowing LCDs? If not, that's a problem.
Otherwise, try the following: remove the battery and the AC jack to make sure the machine is off. Now insert the AC jack, and reset the power management unit by pressing the following multi-key combination:
Shift Control Option Power-button
Wait five seconds, then press the power button to attempt to start the computer normally.
The instructions above are for the 1.5GHz PowerBook G4; the instructions MAY be different if that is not your model.

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.

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


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
