okay im soooo happy to say that m audio sent me back a new unit and the digital static i was experiencing (see delta 1010 woes - recent topic) is gone. so that is awesome since i put up with it for almost 6 months. now im trying to use my WD 80gb sata drive to record to and im getting pop/click with audio recorded to it. if i record to the primary os/app drive, and ide drive, the issue is resolved. im using an asus A7N8X-E mobo with a silicon image SiL3112 sata/raid chipset. anyone have any tips of resolving this issue?
