Who figured out why when I run Protools or Akai mpc studio, the e-mu driver turns off multi-client, that is, WDM and the sound in Windows (browser, player, etc.) stops,
other programs such as Cubase, ableton, fl work and do not intercept the audio driver, is it possible to fix it somehow?

:help:
Specs:
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043
System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900KF CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3600 Mhz, 8 Core(s), 16 Logical Processor(s)
American Megatrends Inc. 1.D0, 12/31/2020 SMBIOS Version 2.8
BIOS Mode UEFI
MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS (MS-7B51)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 128 GB

I cannot get my beloved Emu 1820m to work. The breakout box won't light up and Patchmix DSP tells me I don't have the necessary hardware installed even though the device manager sees the card.

I tried installing the drivers according to but could not get safe-mode to work so I tried to work around it. I've since been enlightened as to why I could not 'see' safe-mode and attempted to remove the first install and try again doing it exactly according to form.

Device manager 'sees' the card (which is installed in a Sintech PCI-E Express X1 to Dual PCI Riser Extender Card with Low Profile Bracket according to an article I found https://musicphotolife.com/2016/04/old- ... n-desktop/ -- which is what lead me here). But the breakout box remains dark and inert.

I am not sure how to proceed but if I'm going to re-attempt an install, I need to know exactly which files I need to remove so to make sure there is nothing left over. Other than that, does anyone have any suggestions?

I have a EMU 1212 M if anyone is interested I would consider selling it for a good deal. Dunno if it's worth it to anyone. Just saying... Basically you would just have to be able to make it worth it for
me to actually mail it to you.

Fantastic solution thank you. Updated windows 10 to latest version today, followed the instructions and my EMU 1820 is working perfectly, didnt need the ASIO fix either. :)

I would try a different CAT 5 cable. If it doesn't light, then take the box apart and see if the caps are bulging. Easy to tell. If they are, change them. No hard if you can solder. If you can't, take to a computer repair shop (buy the caps first) and ask them to install them.
