During a month or so I have encountered a problem with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver. I use a MR816x Soundcard.
From time to time the FW Driver drop out in the midle of a Cubase session. There is no way (in my experience) to get it up again, except for rebooting.
It have also happened that I get a message saying “The Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver failed to initialize” as the first event when I have booted my PC. Then there is no need to start Cubase to try to get the driver up - the only solution is to reboot.
I used the driver from TOOLS for MR 1.7.4 · 64-Bit up till yesterday, when I installed the driver from TOOLS for MR 1.7.6 · 64 Bit. After install I rebooted, and everything worked fine for an hour or so. Then I turned the system off and went to sleep. Today I booted my PC again, only to get the “failed to initialize” message. As for now, I have rebooted 6 times without getting the driver up and running.
The Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver Installation Guide only has this to say (page 19):
Error message: Failed to initialize.
Cause: Initialization of Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver has failed.
Solution: Restart the computer.
So, does anybody know how to approach this problem…?
