I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this. I have an Emagic Audiowerk 8 card in the PC I run Vstack on. It has run perfectly for a long time. When it is working, the icon tray has a "AW" showing, when it is in use, it shows "44". For some reason, it seems that the card is getting hijacked by something. When I boot up, the "AW" appears, but turns to "44" after a few seconds. When I click on the Audiowerk control panel and try to do a sound test, a box appears that says "device already in use - wait until it is free and try again".
I have removed it from being the default device for anything, so I don't know what is using it.
Any ideas anyone. Aside from the obvious "get a newer card"?
