Can anyone tell me if these are the most uptodate drivers for my 1212M PCI?

This is the same as I have after the installation described by Martin at Sherwood Sound Studios, published earlier in this thread.

These instructions worked perfectly for me, until it came to rebooting in Safe mode, which required a password (that I did not know). Pin number and Microsoft account password both failed to allow access. It turns out that Windows now has 2 passwords - Microsoft account, now the default when setting up a new install, and Local, which is the password required to get into Safe mode.(and is never mentioned in the current installation procedure!).
Set up a local password by choosing Settings, Accounts then Log on with local password.
Set up your new password and you should then be able to access Safe mode.

Hi there.

Big thank you to Sherwood Sound and all of you here that have contributed to getting our EMU equipment working on Windows 10.
I have been at it all day. I finally got a result when I decided to unhook the computer take all of the cards out and give the computer a needed clean. I then followed the Sherwood instructions to the letter and then configured Patchmix with a simple input and output for 1 and 2. BINGO it worked.
I have 2 EMU docks. One is an 1820 and the other an 1820m. When I got everything working I hooked up the 1820m and rebooted. For some reason no sound. I thought maybe I should have left the 1820 on so I changed the 1820m and hooked up the 1820. Still no sound.
Any ideas anyone ?. I have had a long day with this and I have no idea why it worked one minute and then not.
PS. I noticed when reading the thread that some people were asking for Win 10 drivers for the 0404 USB. I have one of those and found drivers that work perfectly on Win 10 with no issues. If anyone needs these drivers I will find a way for you to have them.

Hi Guys .

Solved the problem.

I use Cakewalk Sonar Platinum or what is now the Freebie by Bandlab. (PS: I paid a lot of money for my Cakewalk over the years but I have no objection for you all getting this for free. Quite awesome what they are giving fro free. Check it out when you have a moment.Just do a Google search for Cakewalk by Bandlab.)
BTW I discovered that if I boot my Cakewalk Sonar up that the audio is working fine with choices for all available inputs and outputs within Sonar.
I then created another Strip within Patchmix and chose Wave 1 and 2 for the outputs. Now I have sound for the windows system like Youtube etc. Mightily pleased that I can use my EMU soundcards and breakout boxes again.

Thank you all so much. I had visions of me giving these cards away, dumping them or getting a tenner on eBay for them. Now I can use them again and there is no reason for me to even consider spending money on anything else. These EMU audio cards are up there with the best.
