I get an error when running the directsound tests. I wouldn't normally be bothered as most the sound works ok, but i've been having problems with voices in games.
The exact error says: DirectSound test results: Failure at step 10 (Secondary buffer): HRESULT = 0x8878001e (Control not available)
MS shows this information: DSERR_CONTROLUNAVAIL - The buffer control (volume, pan, and so on) requested by the caller is not available.
I have a hercules digifire 7.1 soundcard, windows XP with all updates, direct x 9.0b installed.
i have no conflicts with anything in device manager.
any ideas anyone?
