Hi, I've just got my Alesis IO14 operational in bootcamp. There are the necessary steps on this forum - http://www.gearslutz.com/board/1961838-post3.html I've also installed the SP1 firewire drivers as instructed by RME regarding firewire performance (http://www.rme-audio.com/english/techinfo/fw800sp2.htm), and a Windows hotfix for firewire with SP2 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/885222). I'm not sure whether the last two steps are necessary.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the reply. The links you provided are helpful. I discovered that the major problem causing the Alesis iO26 to hiccup running Windows Media Player v9 was the wireless connection being on. As soon as I turned that off, my recording problems went away on the WinXP Pro SP2 boot. Interestingly, when I boot into Mac, I can leave the wireless router connection on and there are no problems at all. So that problem is solved.
I still don't understand why Steinberg's Wavelab 5.01b won't allow me to run at 48khz. It always picks 44.1Khz/16bit mode, no matter what I set the Audio interface to. I'll have to do more research here.
Next step is to load up SONAR 7 again and see if it likes the new (wireless off) environment.
Again, thanks for the reply
