Computer/Windows 10 dont find Pcie SSL Mardi Card

Hello!
Some time ago I bought two SSL Alphalink cards, and a SSL mardi pcie card. But when Windows 10 starts it dont find the pcie card in devicemanager.
So its not working.. Im I wrong, but shouldent the card show up in Windows devicemanager?
What I have heard, it would work to use SSL alphalink in windows 10 and cubase.

The SSL Madi Xtreme is not compatible with Win 10. The drivers havenโ€™t been update for 5 years or so. Mine runs on Mac OS High Sierra but itโ€™s unsupported and occasional the card is not seen by the computer. The last stable OSโ€™s were Win 7 & Mac OS 10.7. Itโ€™s unlikely SSL will update the drivers so the product line is dead on modern OSโ€™s.

Hello!
Ok, but is it possible to get it to work only in cubase?
Is it a option to use the ssl alphalink as a standalone adat converter to my focusrite saffire 56?

Is it possible to use this rme as a audiodriver in cubase, and get 32 in/output?

The RME Digiface USB talks to Win10 with its ASIO driver, and therefore *any* DAW will be able to use the 32 in/out channels (at 48k or 44.1k) presented by the RME.

I see that you have an SSL Alphalink, and a Focusrite Liquid Saffire. Using one or the other into the Digiface is a straightforward use of the ADAT ports.

If you want to use both the SSL and the Focusrite concurrently, then clocking source/follower issues arise, and there's some port-specific and model-specific strategy that we'll have to think through to make it all work.

Have you thought about the RME HDSPe MADI or HDSPe MADIFX to interface with the Alpha Link?

From my experience anything that has an x64 win 7 driver will run fine on windows 10. I' ve just installed vista x64 driver for an old M audio FW610 and it runs amazing at 64 samples.

Do you have fast start enabled in windows 10? it's usually enabled by default that might be the culprit.

Try disabling that.

also what's you computer spec? if it's very recent PCIe4 spec try dropping it to PCI 3 in your BIOS. and try turning off fast boot in your BIOS too to see if the card gets recognised.
