Question Pro-Audio: "M-Audio Mobile-Pre" 44.1KHz / 16-bit AD/DA, USB:: Driver?

Having re-acuired my long-since borrowd M-Audio Mobile Pre USB (incept date, circa 2003), I find trouble w/ drivers on Win 7. I figure, Linux do pretty much anything, while proprietary drivers may be a different story.

Gotta lay down some tracks from home for a studio project
( )

I don't own Cubase, but that's another issue altogether. I've just got to get the USB device to be recognized; have the proper drivers installed.

Your assistance shall be appreciated. If the production turns to be just another CDDA-coaster, i'm much obliged to share, in your honour.
(heh heh... it's a joke, people!) but, i do apprecite any; all help. even redirect to another Forum/ specialty site, should that be your recommendation.

Hi, not exactly sure but,

if you have an error console on tty12 (press ctrl+alt+F12)

you can monitor the result of plugging the usb device into the computer.

I read here it's (the module) an ICE of some sort.
modprobe snd_ice(device/model number...) sept2012

Cool Many thanks

@GlennsPref ,
Thank you very much for your thoughtful reply. I will investigate. Last I recall, I got the device working. Let's call it a fluke in my favour. I don't recall /doing/ anything spectacular to arrive at such a state, other than perhaps some general rebooting on update, or some such.

Cool thing. Mint hadn't been recognizing my on-board card (Realtek HDD Audio, some such Lenovo K-330b B/S, i digress).
After this M-Audio Mobile Pre USB tinkering, i'm pleased I can now listen to music with, or without it... so i recall.
This (secondary) issue had vexed me for quite some time. Had no idea to go about repairing that but, alas, I needn't bother over it anymore.

Funny how some things, albeit typically a rare occurrence, actually do go my way. hehe...

Best regards!

Will try to rem to update this thread should i be enlightened; have anything to add, after reading GlennsPref's suggested media.
