ASIO Driver Open failure! Cubase

Hi there,
I got myself a new PC, reinstalled Cubase with all licenses etc.. and it works fine.
Now I wanted to connect my Tascam 16x08 interface, so I got the latest driver. Note: the interface is at the studio, so I didnt connect it yet. Just wanted to install the 16x08 driver in advance.

So I did that, and it also shows up in Cubase to select in the studio settings. BUT as soon as I select it, it says "ASIO Driver Open Failure!"

Anybody here with similar experiences who could help out?

Recording Error: ASIO driver is not working. Help please :(

Hello all, i'm new to this forum so i might be posting on the wrong sub-forum, excuse me if i am.

So here's my problem, i've done everything i found in the internet and nothing seems to fix it. I recently bought a Focusrite 2i2, and i wanted to plug it into Cubase and record songs, after i had some trouble with defining the sound card, i managed to get the setings right. I have the bus and the VST device ready and all. But i can't seem to make Cubase take input from the soundcard, it keeps saying ASIO driver is not working and i don't see any sound-meters moving while i play. I'll attach some pictures so you can see the setup i made, i really hope someone can help me here :(

Help - interface/driver issue!

Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I hope this is the right spot to post this.

I'm working with Reaper in Windows XP SP3 on a Dell Optiplex dual core 2.6GHz with 3GB of RAM.

I was working with an M-Audio Delta 1010LT, but I don't have that anymore, so I picked up an Echo Layla (the older 20-bit one).

I've installed the Layla, and the driver (v6.11 from the Echo site) seemed to install with no problem. I first tried to set up the inputs/outputs with the "Echo WDM ASIO" driver. But when I hit play on any project, I get this message:

"There was an error while opening your audio hardware:
Error initializing buffers."

Then I tried to use the ASIO4ALL (v2.11) driver, and it won't recognize my inputs/outputs. In the ASIO4ALL configuration screen, there's a red X over each of the inputs/outputs, and when I hover the mouse over one, it says:

"Status: Unavailable!

In use by another application?
MS GS Wavetable Synth enabled?"

Any clue as to what the issue could be? I've already tried re-booting and re-installing the (Layla) driver to no avail.

Thanks much!

Problems installing Tascam US-1641 driver on Windows 7 DAW

I am trying to install the latest driver pack that Tascam has for the US-1641 on a 64-bit windows 7 OS, but every time I try to install it the computer restarts in the middle of the process. It then boots up and asks if I want to boot in safe mode, so I have a feeling it is something in the system. I have checked for updates to the OS, but it keeps saying it is up to date. I have tried running it in compatability mode, and had the same results. i have tried running it as an administrator and still the same thing happened. Any one have any idea what I should do?

Help. New computer, lost driver disc and more

I need to get the copy that came wi th my Avid recording studio onto my new computer. I have the old computer, but that's not helping, considering I can't find the driver disc which also had the version of Pro Tools on it I was using (I'm assuming a scaled down version of pro tools since the interface is so cheap). I *think* I downloaded the right driver from the web site, but it's useless without the recording software. What to do now? Is there a way to patch from one computer to another? I need it for a project I'm working on tomorrow. And I've hunted everwhere for it.

Steinberg 816x - failed to initialize - Yamaha WDM driver disappears.

Hello to all
I have a PC and a Steinberg 816x and a very strange problem.
After installing the driver and the software everything works well.
Problem starts when after rebooting the windows (XP SP2) I get a following error message on the screen: "Failed to initialize".
It's about the Yamaha FW bus driver, but after checking the Cotrol Panel I see that from 3 sound drivers I should have one - Yamaha WDM driver - disappears.
It happens everytime I repeat the clean instalation.
I've tried another FW PCMCIA card, but the problem remains.
Does anyone have an idea what can be the problem?
Thanks in advance.

Please help! Sound driver annoyances

I've been having problems for a while with my M-Audio Fast Track Pro Interface. Most of the time i can get it to work, and other times it won't allow me to use it. When i go into the Cubase control panel to select the master driver "M-Audio USB ASIO", ill get a popup saying "Audio Engine Error: Could not activate ASIO Driver M-Audio USB ASIO". Sometimes if i just turn the interface off and on again it'll work like normal, other times it just won't work for days. I'm pretty new with computer based recording, but this problem really is starting to make me want to throw the whole thing away as i've been trying to work it out for months. If you can help me, you'll be my new favourite person.
