It's possible that the outputs on your FireWire 410 are not properly enabled. Try checking the settings in the audio interface software to make sure that the outputs for the TRS and headphone jacks are enabled. You can also try connecting the audio interface to another system to see if the issue is present there as well. If it is, then it's likely a hardware issue with the FireWire 410 itself.

Testimonial: "Thanks Osamah, I’ve tried everything you said except connecting it to another system, so I will try that .. but I think it’s a hardware issue.. I also have a FireWire 1814 working ok and I’m using the same cables to connect the 410."

It sounds like you may be experiencing a configuration issue with your M-Audio FireWire 410 audio interface. Here are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check the connections: Make sure that the FireWire 410 is securely connected to your computer and that all cables are properly plugged in. If the connections are loose or faulty, it can cause problems with the audio output.
  2. Restart the device: Sometimes, restarting the audio interface can resolve issues with the audio output. To do this, disconnect the FireWire 410 from your computer, wait a few seconds, and then reconnect it.
  3. Update the drivers: It is possible that the drivers for your FireWire 410 may be out of date or incompatible with your operating system. To update the drivers, visit the M-Audio website and download the latest drivers for your device. Once the drivers are installed, restart your computer and try using the FireWire 410 again.
  4. Check the settings: Make sure that the FireWire 410 is selected as the default audio device in your operating system's audio settings. You can access these settings by going to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound. Under the Playback and Recording tabs, select the FireWire 410 and click the Set Default button.
If these steps do not resolve the issue, it is best to contact M-Audio support for further assistance. They should be able to provide you with specific guidance for troubleshooting the problem with your FireWire 410.

    Thanks Michael, I think it might be a hardware issue… I’ve tried all you’re saying already…I actually own another m-audio interface (FireWire 1814), they both work pretty much the same. Unfortunately where I am I can’t get any M-audio support.. but thanks again for your help.??

Driver installation problem

Some computer firewire interface's don't work very well under Windows... However...

Make sure you follow the installation directions to the letter... especially in regard to whether the cable is plugged in while installing...

Also you MIGHT try installing the software in SAFE MODE.

Then in the audio editing software you often have to configure the audio in/out device.

This can realy be frustrating... I just fought a UA 25EX to get it to work and the problem was an incorrect switch to the sample rate.

My (M-AUDIO FW 410)drivers had suddenly got kicked off. (i honestly don't know what had happend to my drivers) So i went on line to get the latest drivers for my (MAC BOOK PRO/10.4.11).... It didn't work....

Unfortunately, you may have to upgrade. Depending how old your system is typically you need to upgrade every 3 to 4 years. You might upgrade your RAM. When you turn on your computer wait at least 5 minutes for all your drivers to load. If you open up an application before they load it may cause a conflict and not load all drivers. Make sure your not connected to the Internet. When your connected to the Internet all your programs that are not set up to not look for updates will. You wont even know that their doing this until it's to late. This is what I would do. Go to your system restore and restore to a point that you knew it was working. When you look at your restore options it will give you a list by day what was added. Just look at these day's and try and remember what you installed before this started happening. You're having a conflicting problem. Now we need to find out where. Feel free to contact me with any other questions. Hope this helps.

No sound device connected to pc!

Do you now have a solution for the problem coz I have the same poblem....
Your soonest reply will be appreciated! Thnx...

Windows xp 64 bit... where is the driver?

M audio will never support win64bit I know it sucks. I roduce music and ran into a lot of problems with the 64bit.. If you need some help with audio or any kind of pro audio let me know.


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...

My M-Audio 410 distorts and jams

When you install WinXP again it fail to see the sound card you will need to load the original sound driver if you dont have it then try here for it:

Theres the reason I believe when you installed XP you have install the driver for that model:  XP fails to load the drivers possibly out of date and then it wont load it however you go here and find your one and install that you wont afterwards.
