Hardware installation.
Installing the Card.
Before installing the card, ensure that you have integrated any expansion objects you require,
such as a Wavetable module (further information can be found in the online documentation).
Adding these modules at a later stage makes the process more complicated.
Before installing the sound card, please take note of any special points pertaining to the configuration of your computer. Also refer to the manual for your computer and other expansion
cards for their settings.
Please observe the following instructions to ensure trouble-free installation.
If you should still experience any problems, please carefully re-read the appropriate chapter in
the online documentation.
Please call our service hotline if you are still having problems. The telephone number and the
hotline hours are given on the accompanying service sheet.
First check to ensure that the package is complete.
The delivery includes at least:
1 PCI sound card TerraTec SoundSystem DMX XFire 1024
1 installation & driver CD-ROM
1 audio cable (2-pin CD-ROM digital cable)
1 registration card with product serial number
1 customer service card
Return the registration card to us at the earliest possible opportunity or register online at
www.terratec.net/register.htm. This is important for support and hotline services.

And here’s what to do, step by step:
• Switch off your PC and all connected peripheral devices, such as printer, monitor and so on.
Leave the AC cord connected for the time being, so that your computer is still grounded.
• Touch the metal chassis at the rear of the PC to ground yourself and discharge static. Now
unplug the cord from the AC mains socket.
• Remove the cover from the case of your PC.
• Look for a free PCI expansion slot, remove the screw holding the slot blanking plate and
remove the plate. To ensure optimum operation of your sound card, select a slot, where
possible, that is not directly next to an existing card because some cards, e.g. graphics
cards, may emit signals that could interfere with your sound card.
• Carefully remove the sound card from its packaging and pick it up by the edges with one
hand while your other hand is resting on the metal of the PC case. This will ensure that your
body is completely discharged via your computer without affecting the sound card. Do not
touch the components of the card under any circumstances.
• If applicable, connect a wavetable daughter board and other internal audio appliances to
the card. Take note of the corresponding instructions in the online documentation.
• Align the holder at the rear of the sound card in the expansion slot in such a way that the
card’s gold-colored connectors are directly in line with the slot’s socket.
• Carefully seat the card in the slot. You might have to press the card firmly into the slot to
make a good contact. Take care to ensure that the contacts are precisely in line in order to
avoid damaging the sound card or the motherboard in your PC.
• Insert and tighten the screw from the slot cover to secure the sound card in its slot.
• Connect the analog or - if available - digital audio output of the CD-ROM drive to the corresponding terminals on the sound card.
• Reinstall the cover of your PC case.
• Connect the speakers or your stereo system to the sound card. Take note of the corresponding instructions in the online documentation.
• Reconnect the mains and all other cables. Make sure that your speakers or hifi system are
set to a low volume. Start your computer.
• Now continue with the chapter “Installing the drivers” in the online manual.

Installation under Windows 2000
If you have installed the SoundSystem DMX XFire 1024, Windows 2000 will first install generic
drivers for DMX XFire 1024 available in the operating system. Once this installation is complete, start AUTORUN.EXE in the root directory of the DMX XFire CD and select the menu option “Driver installation”. This will start the setup program. Select “Install driver” followed by
“Reboot”.
After the computer has been rebooted and the new hardware has been detected by the
Windows 2000 hardware wizard, click “Next”. Choose “Search for a suitable driver for my device (recommended)” and click “Next”. Select the “CD-ROM drives” check box and click
“Next”. Acknowledge the given path with “Next”. The dialog box which then appears tells you
that a digital signature could not be located for the driver. Proceed with the installation by
clicking “Yes” .
Follow the instructions given by the hardware wizard.
Later in the course of the installation, a window of this kind may appear again. If so, remain
calm and collected and proceed carefully by clicking “YES”.
It may also be the case that a few other Windows features need to be installed along with the
card (e.g. if this is the first sound card installation for your system). For this eventuality, please
have your Windows CD handy.
Bundle software
The bundle software supplied with the card can be easily started with the startup function. To
do this, start AUTORUN.EXE in the root directory of the DMX XFire CD and select the menu
option “Bundle software”.
