Delta 192 driver problem

I am trying to use a Delta 192 sound card in an older desk top (Windows7, 64bit, Service pack 1) I have repeatedly downloaded and installed the driver labeled Delta 6_0_8, both with and without physically reinstalling the card, which seems to make no difference, only to find that the driver listed when I go to driver via Control Panel is shown as 5.10.0.5078, driver date 21/12/2011. Further, the "update driver" button is greyed out.
The card is recognised by the computer but I get no sound output at all. It appears to me that the link on the M Audio web site is pointing to the wrong, or a corrupted driver. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me to a working driver. The card and machine worked perfectly up until and aborted attempt to try Windows 10. I think from memory it worked after reverting to 7 but I have not used it since. My main machine is a MacBook. I just want to use this one for mixing as it is an old 3 screen gaming rig.

  • Hey Stephen,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Delta 192 is a legacy product and as a result, support is very limited. This sound card was last supported for Windows Vista SP2 with the following driver but is not supported for use with Windows 7 or Windows 10.:

    M-Audio Delta Audiophile 192 Driver (v5.10.0.5076) - Windows

    If you intend on using this sound card, I would recommend using a supported operating system. Let me know if you have any questions!

  • The card definitely used to work on my desktop. I first bought it for a WindowsXP computer and shifted it across when upgrading.
    Further the web site lists the appropriate drive as:
    Delta Audiophile 192 6.0.8 (PC) 03-15-2012 Delta 6.0.8
    (for Windows 7 SP1 64bit)
    As I said though the resulting driver is not the one listed.
    The listed driver must obviously exist as the card DID work before and I assume it was with this driver.
    The problem seems to be the download link is pointing to the wrong driver.
    I would greatly appreciate a link to the correct driver, either from M-Audio or from someone who has it.
    In the mean time I will continue using external USB sound cards.

  • You need the Control Panel Software not the Win 7 Driver. The Delta 192 loads into Win 10 with the Win 7 driver but without the 'Control Panel' there is no audio control. This renders the card as useless.Toss it away you've had years of use out of it. That is what I am doing. There are heaps of alternatives. I have purchased a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 rack mount interface and will go from there. Good Luck.
