I've recently bought a X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI Express sound card, it works fine with sound directly from the card but i've got it connected to front audio and it plays for about 5 second and cuts off, says audio device removed or reconfigured
The connecter to the sound card is 2x5 female connector and the other end seems to only 8 pins, not sure what it's called, 2x4 female? at the front audio end.
Usually both ends are 2x5 female. not sure if thats the problem.
It obviously can work as it does play for 5 seconds or so but then cuts out as i said.
