REPOST - OT - Problems with original MOTU 828 on XP

    (Will explain my repost in the next email)
    Sorry for the OT. This is a problem with my MOTU XP, not MSP, but am hoping
    someone has been through this.
    I've had my MOTU 828 (original version) for many years. Been using it on a
    Mac (os9 and osX) no problems.
    I now need to use it on an XP machine.
    I installed the latest drivers from the MOTU website.
    I can only access two channels at a time. In "Sounds and Audio Devices"
    control panel and within Max/MSP, my options are limited to selecting a
    stereo pair of output and input channels, I don't see any way to access all
    8 analog or all 10 analog/spidf at one time. e.g., I get droplists allowing
    me to choose channels 1/2 *or* 3/4 *or* 5/6, etc., but not more than two
    channels at a time.
    Anyone know how I can access all 8 analog or all 10 analog/spdif channels at
    once?
    Thanks.

      I solved the problem.
      The ASIO driver wasn't properly installed, so MSP was going through the OS's
      sound control panel, not talking directly to the 828.
      The installer was confusing -- The generic ASIO driver is specifically named
      as a "Cubase VST" option. Didn't realize it wasn't being installed.
