    soundcard driver does not support DirectSound ?

      Hi,
      I just had to reinstall my OS, (Vista) Then I reinstalled AE CS3, now when I open AE I get a message saying that,
      "The currently installed soundcard driver does not support DirectSound Input. Recording audio is not possible"

      My soundcard is a 'High Definition Audio Device' made by Microsoft, it works fine and all the drivers are up to date.

      Does anyone know anything about this problem or how to fix it ?

      Thanks in advance.

          Well, what driver did it use before you re-installed? A standard MS HD Audio device doesn't mean anything. It would install that standard driver on a 10 year old computer, as it's more or less an emulation device. You will have to install the correct chipset specific driver, which probably merely requires a manual initialization of Windows Update with extended options. likewise you should be able to find out what audio device is in your system e.g. by using SiSoft Sandra to probe it...
