Hi ALL!
I Used my US-122 for about year and a half using an AMD-Duron 1.4 PC ,
without having any problems with Audio quality.
Anout 3 month ago a purchesed a Brand New 3Ghz Intel Pentium PC . and I
cannot run a hole song without having some Drops (or something sound
like CD scratch) , I tried allmost anything with my PC Supplier
(including trying and board,CPU,Power Supply,VGA card,Hard drive) , but
the same problem remains.
I tried my US-122 with about 6 diffrent PC's and didn't have the same
problem , so I still think the problem is with the PC.
Also tried to format the Hard drive and install the windows XP pro ,
for about 20 times , but with no results.
Also tried to play with some Bios Setting (of the USB and huper
threding).
NO other USB devices connected to the computer.
the PC's specifications:
3Ghz Intel Pentium
MSI 995 Main board (instead of Intel Main board originaly installed)
MSI NX6600 PCI express graphic Card,
LG DVD Burner,
Sumsung S.ATA Hard Drive.

Anyone have Any idea's or suggestions ???
Can the problem ocuur because of using a PCI express card instead of
AGP ???

I tried to change the 350W Power supply to a 500W Power supply also
with no results...

THANKS in ADVANCE !!!

Sometimes life is like that. Have you checked to see what the USB port
is sharing interrrupts with? WinXP doesn't give you much room to move,
but there are some things you can change if there are conflicts.

If you're using the built-in USB port, you might try sticking a USB
card in there. They cost less than $20 (maybe your PC supplier, since
he seems pretty cooperative, will lend you one) and that might solve
your problem.

At 3 GHz, it probably isn't a laptop, but I guess I have to ask.

Because I live on the trailing edge of technology. Most of the laptops
that I see advertised are still in the 1.4 to 1.8 GHz range.

Don't leave that 3.4 GHz laptop on your lap very long or you'll never
be able to have children.

However, laptops are far less configurable than normal computers when
it comes to fixing IRQ conflicts. If he does have a laptop, he might as
well off it and get another, since he knows that the US-122 isn't
broken. It's not worth the frustration of dealing with a computer
company who will tell you that it's someone else's problem, not theirs.
They may be wrong, but they have your money.

Mike, why would you assume 3 GHz implies "not a laptop"? I have a laptop
with a 3.4 GHz processor due here next week.

I have a desktop computer (not a laptop) ,
anyway the computer is at my dealer now , he's still trying to find the
reason for that problem,
when I will get back the computer I might try to use ab extra PCI USB
card.
Thanks!
