Topic: RME RayDAT Strangeness - Invalid Serial Number
I've been a happy RayDAT user for years. Today I was helping a friend with a Windows machine, and we took an old RayDAT from his old Pyramix machine and put it in his build (8th Gen intel).
We're troubleshooting some PCIe wierdness with his rig (he uses it for vMix) which we're still not happy with. Anyway, amongst this we tried this RayDAT. In a 1x slot he gets a blue screen with hdsp.dll, but moving it to x4 slot worked so we could update firmware. The strange thing is, the firmware update would freeze. It couldn't see a serial number, and clicking start just made it freeze. After a reboot, and putting it in the x16 slot, moving GFX to x4 slot, the computer booted fine, no dll crash and we could see the serial number, and updated the firmware. Now, the card seems to work but the serial number is still now XXXXXXXX.
I brought the card home and plopped it in a different machine. Drivers install fine, but still strange things going on:
Device Info... in TotalMix is also blank but the card did seem to work in vMix.
Just wondering if this is a hardware problem, or if another flash could help. The current flash screen I'm seeing looks a little corrupted so just wondering what you'd suggest.
