Windows 7: Cannot get XP set-up to work in 7

Cannot get XP set-up to work in 7

My set-up with Windows XP was an M-Audio Delta sound card with output to my venerable Creek Audio amplifier. Since I installed Windows 7, I canít get this to work. Both the sound card and amplifier have been tested. Itís most likely my being a dummkopf; I know I have to select the audio device, but I canít find it in WIN7 (Ultimate 32bit}. Iíd be very glad if someone would either take me by the hand or give me a firm shove in the right direction.

I see a lot of posts with problems with the MAudio Delta in recording forums (I have a recording studio using Sonar X3).

The Win XP drivers are not compatible. Vista/Win 7 drivers for the specific model Delta card, if they are available, is the first step. The gearslutz forum would be a good place to start. www.gearslutz.com if you can't find the drivers.

Thank you for the reply. The driver is for WIN7 - I should have included this in my question. Neither Control Panel/ Sound nor Device Manager have solved it. Somehow I remember seeing another place where the default sound device has to be set - but it isn't in the Control Panel.

I only use headphones for sound - plugging these into the on-board sound-card socket works correctly. However we have just found that the headphone plug is hot when it's removed. I think I have to see to this first - the test on my amplifier was probably done using speakers.

The Default Sound Playback Device is found in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel.

Windows will only allow setting one default playback device. It normally defaults to the "Speakers" which is the PC's sound. If you have some other device, such as the MAudio, you must manually set that for the default every time you boot up.

I've already been there - doesn't solve the problem. The bar indicators are moving when music is played. As I said, the M-Audio card has been tested, the amplifier and also the connecting leads.
I think I'd better have another trip to my electronic wizard, since a hot headphone socket in the amplifier doesn't seem healthy to me. Thank you again for your help.

What kind of "Hot" headphone jack do you have? Does it have voltage on it?

I'm not sure what type of connections you have. The MAudio would be connected directly with an amp, not through the regular PC audio jacks.

This has been my set-up for about ten years, from 98SE to XP, even before I got the M_Audio. The amp gives me better control. I simply mean that the headphone plug is hot when withdrawn. It's a fault with the amp and I'll take it in.

Oh, OK.

I'm a former guitar amp tech. It sounds like a grounding problem.
