Topic: Driver Multiface DSP (v1) crashing
I have some problems with the first edition of the RME Hammerfall Multiface DSP (the one without the volume controle knob).
This device used to work great together with an old laptop running Windows XP (x86) and a Cardbus HDSP interface. However, since I required some more processing power, I upgraded to a more modern desktop computer running Windows 7 (x64) and a HDSPe ExpressCard.
When I tested this new set-up, I noticed Cubase crashed when I tried to start it (see the Steinberg forum for more info on this). I first thought this was because of a problem with Cubase (hence the forum post), but when I delved deeper I found that I couldn't change the settings of the DSP, that lot of info wasn't showing (e.g. system clock frequency) in the settings program and that the settings program also crashed a lot of times.
This, combined with the fact that the processes couldn't be killed from the taskmanager (which is probably because the process tries to execute a kernel level function, like a driver function) makes me think there is something wrong with the drivers of the Multiface DSP / combination with Windows 7 x64.
I had this problem with the driver I installed from the CD that came with the HDSPe ExpressCard (can't find version number at this moment) and the newest driver (Version 3.29). I updated the Multiface's firmware about 4 months ago (with my old set-up ofc.).
Is there anybody who could give me some insight in this problem?
