HELP NEEDED: Terratec DMX, without name extention (no xfire or 6fire) (Windows 2003 Server)
This is very serious. Just read this first and than please help me to find a solution. The Windows XP/2000/2003 driver does not exist. Maybe you can help me, please:
Terratec DMX (without name extention, so not the DMX Xfire or DMX 6fire, just DMX !) has ESS Canyon 3D chip, known as ES1970. Exist only driver for Windows 98/Me (VXD) and NT4. Very advanced PCI sound card, with 2x analogue out, wavetable connector, 2x digital in and out (coax and fiberglass), MPU-401 midi, 97db S/N, super card bought 2001 ! I need to install the card under Windows XP/2000/2003/Vista.
Windows XP/2000/2003 recognizes it as ESS Maestro 2E, known as chip ES1978, the wrong one. But there is good sound, only one stereo channel (front). The rear stereo channel is not working. All the other features are not working: digital in/out, MPU-401 external midi/ wavetable connector, rear stereo channel and the very advanced control panel for the device.
I realy want to use the features of the sound card for making my own music (midi and music mixing with Cubase) and video edditing (with Adobe Premiere).
Few not simple questions:
1) Does anybody know if there is someone on this planet who has made the driver for 2000 himself? Or can somebody make that driver for me and many other people who are verry disappointed in the wat the manufacturer treat the customers?
2) Is it possible to install and use the 98 or NT4 driver in windows 2000/2003/Xp with help of some tricks or additional computerprograms or scripts?
3) Is this possible and how: I install the sound card in my old Pentium 1, running Windows 98, connect this computer somehow with the newer Pentium 3, runnung Windows 2003, that is using the sound card that is located in the pentium 1. Is that possible and how?
4) Is this possible: I buy a new Pentium 4 HT (hyper trade tochnology), that is behaving like two processors. I have seen such a computer running both Windows98 and Windows XP simultanously (two processes at the same time and you can switch between them or have them both on different screens with twin view VGA card and two monitors). In the Windows 98 process I install the sound card. In the Windows XP process I use the sound card that has been installed in the Windows98 process. It looks a little bit like situation 3. Only difference, this is one computer. Is it possible and how?
5) I make a dual boot function. in the windows 98 boot everything must be possible and is possible, like digital recording and making midi sound with the digital piano keyboard. in the windows XP/2000/2003 boot option I want to make it possible to play midi files over the external Midi/ wavetable connector. Because I have a Yamaha wavetable upgrade card and some external midi sound modules I want to use. In the driver that windows XP/2000/2003 installs (ESS Maestro 2E, ES1978) the external midi (MPU-401) is not supported. I wil be very very very happy when somebody can tell me how to activate the MPU-401 function under windows 2003. I am very happy when I can only play the midi file from an external midi device under windows 2003.
