Major problem with Emu 1616m

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me? I have
recently purchased a E-mu 1616M. And nearly everytime i plug the card
into my laptop, i get a blue screen that quickly flashes up saying
somekind of error (its so fast i cant read it) and then my laptop just
restarts. And on the very unlikely time that this doesnt happen. After
say a minute or 2, my laptop will just freeze completely. I dont know
what the problem could be, ive installed all the software correctly. I
dont know if its a problem with say the RAM of my computer, maybe i need
more?? I just wanted to ask if this is a common problem, and or what can
i do about it?? Much appreciated

These are my laptop specifications;
Windows XP; Computer Type: ACER TRAVELMATE 2700
CPU: PENTIUM 4
3.00GHZ; RAM: 512MB

What is happening is that you are receiving what techies call the BSOD or blue screen of death. The most likely reason that you are getting this is a driver error. Try and press f8 before you see the loading windows xp screen with the scrolling green progress bar. This will bring you into safe mode. Go to the device manager and remove the driver. Reboot the computer and get the latest drivers from the manufacturers website and install them.

Hello. i have question about soundcard e-mu 1616 (not 1616M) please answer me pls. she work with windows 7? on official site i not see driver for Win7. but on 1616M driver is exists thx


Apparently versions of the E-Mu 1616 sound hardware are still being sold, and this is now 2013. My experience suggests that E-Mu is out of business. Creative Technologies has kept the E-Mu site online, but the forms are broken, nothing's been updated for years, the forum is virtually inactive, and Support links are dead or missing. I recently couldn't even find a support contact for Creative (Soundblaster). The 1616 Microdock is a highly capable product, but its software is hard to figure out and compatibility for the constantly evolving Windows operating systems is questionable. Mine currently has stopped working with some of the software it worked with for years (using Windows XP and then Windows 7), and apparently some software (e.g. Audacity) does not support it at all. Online retailers should take this product off their "shelves."

I can't get the software/drivers to download to my PC (Dell GX280 w/3gb ram XPpro). I'm trying to use the bundle that came with the purchase of my 1616m and I get a message that says it doesn't see any emu...


Try removing the device driver in Hardware manager, then 'refresh' to tell it to look for a new driver. Keep the CD in the drive, and have windows search it for the driver.

EMU 1616M sound card


Hi,
I know this is a longshot, so forgive me..
Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit.
I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that..
Let me know how you get on..

HI, I have an emu 1616m soundcard. My laptop recognizes the EMU and the pulgins, but no sound comes out of the monitors.Only from the laptop speakers.


You have to select the EMU as the default playback device in Windows and or select it as the playback device in the software you are using for recording or playback.
Go to Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices icon, and select the Audio tab. There is a drop down box that lists all playback devices. You have to select the EMU in there.
That should get you working.

Love the system...


The e-mu sure can do it. You just run whatever output you want into the input on the sound board. The setup is exactly the same as if you just wanted to play winamp music on the system.

It's your computer that can't handle it. Computer only has one sound output, so you can't play two separate things in two separate instances of winamp, because the sound only comes out of one place on your laptop.

You can buy a second external sound card, like the SB Live External USB Sound card, and maybe run both at the same time, having one winamp output to the external device, and the other winamp output to the laptop's internal sound card device, then one line runs to your e-mu system and the other to a pair of headphones.

Or you can bring another laptop in ;)

E-Mu 1616m Mirco Dock Problems


LEE - Couple things to try...

First, make sure you have the EDI cable plugged in between the microdock and the sound card. Yeah... sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised.

Secondly, uninstall the software (CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). Once the software is uninstalled, reinstall the software (ONCE AGAIN, CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS IN THE MANUAL). I've found that if you do not follow the directions word-for-word, things tend to not work.

If the above doesn't help, there's a chance that the microdock is burnt.

Out of curiosity... you didn't plug/unplug anything from the microdock with the microdock powered on, did you? This could be death, if you did...
