I have a Yamaha F1 writer and i also have the Audigy 2 soundcard,now when i use the Media Souce player that came with Audigy 2 and i want to burn a compilation cd it tells me that there is no supported device!!!,so i had a look in the settings menu and the part where it asks you which writer you would like to use is greyed out so i cannot choose the Yamaha as my writer.I am using the latest firmware for the writer and i have just installed the latest drivers for my soundcard.There is no problem with Music Match or Nero...Any idea's anyone?

I've had this problem with Creative's Media Centre with the Audigy too. It's cause Creative haven't added support for your drive. Just about all my drives won't work with Creative's burning s/w for the reason they are too new for the proggy and Creative are too lazy to release updates to add more drives.

My feelings exactly...

I will still get an Audigy 2, though, and sell of my Audigy. SBA2 is really one powerful card.. (not as if I would be worried if Creative's burning s/w doesn't work with the vast majority of newly released drives...) [}:)][B)]

It is a great card,i changed from a SB 4.1 to the SB Audigy 2 and boy what a difference...only thing is now ive got a decent soundcard it shows the shortfalls with my Creative 5300 Inspire speakers!!!95% there ok but every now and then certain tracks sound awful,a new decent set maybe in order after my holidays

I also encountered the problem with Creative Meadia Source not recognizing my Yamaha F1. How frustrating!

However, I did discover a few updates for the Audigy 2, at least one of which addresses the issue with the Yamaha F1. I think another fixes some bug with the EAX console or something. Those updates can be found on Creative's Support page. Or you can try this link:

http://www.americas.creative.com/support/files/download.asp?Centric=279&OS=13

BUT - I have yet to sucessfully burn anything with Media Source. Even though the recorder is detected correctly with Media Source, the software's burning engine fails due to buffer underrun. Can you believe that?!

Any advice or feedback is welcome.

Thanks very much trc1976,my Yam is now recognised ,and ive just tested it and was able to burn a cd,i'll probably never use again now,but that not point,why give you software if it doesn't work,it's a total wast of time for all concered
