It is also possible that the front panel connector from the case is wired wrong, thereby triggering the pop up.
P.S. You can also use this modded driver, UNi Xonar « brainbit
which is based on the latest available Xonar driver, and works with almost all Xonar's.
Hiyya stormy mate I have tried both the HD and AC connectors on the board and direct to the card. The same thing happens whatever I plug into whatever. I was advised by a friend to use the HD as the main connector so have left it at that now.
I have the very same card in my Sandy Bridge build on a Gigabyte board and it worked first time and I have no trouble running a 5.1 system off of it in any way shape or form. Now in my Ivy Bridge build on an Asus board I have this problem.
Now just as matter of info when the card is plugged into the board it (in the SB build) disconnects the I/O audio socket and I was quite expecting this to happen with this set up.
What I do have is a secondary front panel wiring loom to a card reader that currently carries only the USB, SD etc card feature sockets. I suppose it is worth trying that and disconnecting the top front panel.
My contention is that this should not be an issue as surely it is just down to a straight connection between the card and the socket? Whether that is done through the board or direct from the card itself.
For something so simple as getting some sound going it just doesn't make any sense and one gets really tired of having to configure this with that for anything to work. I use it mainly for music mixing and customising my outputs - otherwise I probably wouldn't bother.
Anyway thanks for your help I'll have a look at that ref you sent me as quick flick through it looks like really good article
