Ok, it's visible, does it say "Enabled" or "Ready" underneath.

Is it set as the Default Input?

Does it have a properties button?

Yes to all 3 questions.

EDIT: Correction, it simply says that it is the "default communication device". CD Player says "currently unavailable". Line-In "currently unavailable". SPDIF In "currently unavailable". ALT "currently unavailable". AUX "currently unavailable".
Stereo Mix "currently unavailable". Wave "ready". Analog In (TV tuner) "ready".

I thought that the driver might need to be reinstalled, but I just did that, and the listings that I gave in the last post are still the same now. I'm not certain about most of them, but I know for certain about Stereo Mix, because I tested that to record audio from Hulu shortly after installing the card.

Yeah, I just don't know this device (D2X) well enough to even guess accurately.

One last idea... If you select the Mic and click the properties button, are you presented with a window that has several tabs.

Listen, levels, enhancements, advanced.

If enhancements is there, disable all of the sound effects.
Make sure the sample rate is not something like 96kHz, more like 16-bit 44.1.

Don't know if there's anything else I can offer.

If you get it figured out post back.

Maybe try the AUX input?

I hate to do it, because they are so slow and not very helpful...usually, but I think that I'm going to have to contact Asus about this, because the problem appears to go deeper than a simple configuration setting. Maybe the card has just gone haywire. Something that is confusing to me, is the mention of DirectX in the error window that I attached above. What does sound have to do with DirectX? I know that there is a sound section in it, but I've always considered it more of a video function.

Do you only have the single card in the machine? Onboard audio is disabled in the BIOS, correct?

DirectX is also audio, but it's mostly for audio output, DirectX has always been so-so when it comes to recording, in fact I don't think it's used for recording anymore.

Have you tried all the inputs?

Do you have a tab called "Listen", (Recording Devices/Microphone/Properties) that should not be enabled.
Good luck, keep us posted.

If that is so, you would wonder why it is mentioned in the error message?

Yes, but there doesn't seem to be much point in continuing that, since it's listed as being currently unavailable in Recording Devices.

Tried it both ways, but I will leave it disabled.

Hey seekermeister, sorry to bring up an old thread.

I was wondering if you had fixed the problem you were having with the D2X 500 days ago lol? I have tried both asus and unified drivers but both are coming up the same.
