No Audio Installed when Recording, OK when Playing under Vista
Posted on 2008-06-15
My Edirol UA-25 Sound Card crashed during the recording of a song, overusing the modulating wheel on a USB piano, the Sound Card froze up with a continuous whining, could only get rid by unplugging USB cable from Sound Card.
Had to reboot Windows Vista to refind the Sound card, the lights on the card lit up, but Vista did not recognise the Edirol sound device and under Play, Record 'no audio device installed'.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the Sound Card driver for my Edirol USA-25 external Sound Card, and it has been found when the Sound Card was plugged in, and installed ok.
I tried to get Vista to recognise the card by unplugging the sound card and plugging it back it, but Vista only installed the Generic USB Composite Device.
This gives me Playing of sounds, but the Recording still has 'no device installed'
The driver being used is NOT my usual Edirol Sound card driver, it is giving me speaker choice options I don't usually get?
Looks as if Vista is not 'seeing' my installed Edirol drivers, and installing some generic driver instead which only gives playback, not record facillities?
My Vista Sound Service is running ok, as I can hear sounds playing, but the record function is just not showing up anywhere, either in Vista or in Cubase, my sound recording software.
Any ideas why Vista is choosing to install a generic USB sound driver instead of seeing the installed Edirol software?
Any ideas why Playing is ok, but Recording is not showing the installed driver?
thanks for any help
