For some odd reason, Acid has been locking up a decent amount of times when i go to record audio.

Is this happening to anyone else?

Maybe is my WinXP Pro?

i experienced the same problem using a pc w/ xp pro. it was so annoying: i'd be in the middle of recording a track and it would lock up/freeze and i'd have to kill the power to the computer in order to reboot.

i simply attributed it to the pci card i was using (aarvark ark 24). a friend of mine had the same problem as well. he corrected it by completely un-installing/removing his soundblaster card as it must have been causing a confilct w/ HIS aarvark card (dunno if this is an aarvark issue- dunno know what kind of sound card you are using)

in anycase, i am using xp pro on a new machine w/ a motu 828mkII fw interface and haven't had any recording problems yet... just waiting, tho, as audio playback has been another story...

good luck and best wishes,

It could be your soundcard/audio interface drivers. Also could be how your system is configured as casino mentioned. Even though Windows XP is reporting that sharing IRQ's amongst your devices is hunky-dory, a device such as your soundcard still might not like the idea of sharing.

There are a couple ways of getting the card to cooperate, including moving the card to a different slot and/or going into the system's BIOS to reserve an IRQ for a specific slot. Freeing up IRQ's for devices you don't use (like your printer port or PS/2 mouse port) is another idea.

Using an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 in Windows XP Home without any problems. (Using the latest supported Audiophile drivers as well.)

Under preferences, instead of an ASIO driver, use the Windows Classic Wave Driver. It worked for me with that problem.
