  1. Hi all, I recently bought an AK120 and am currently trying to figure out how to use it as an external DAC for my PC running windows 7 64 bit (Mac Book Pro running bootcamp). i) I can't get windows to recognise it as an available external DAC, When I connect the USB cable, the options I see on the AK120 is either to charge the battery or connect USB, so I choose the latter and wait for it to connect. It connects ok and can view the file system as normal. However, when I go into the sound settings in windows, the AK120 is not registered as a USB device as expected. The screen on the AK120 just says 'USB connected'. ii) I tried to test the digital optical input port and again this didn't seem to work. I was testing it using my Sony TV which has digital optical output. I connected them together and then expected to hear the audio through the connected headphones, but I couldn't hear anything. The following are the use cases that I would like to work: a) To enable to me to convert my vinyl to hi res digial audio: * connect AK120 to USB port on computer, * connect analog phono output from mixer to line-in on computer (I am not sure if this correct, would I need to connect it to the line-in on the AK120 instead?) b) Use AK120 as a second sound card for my computer so that I can perform digital DJ mixing with my computer * connect AK120 to USB port on computer * connect headphone socket to amplifier * use the headphone socket on the computer as the monitor c) Use the AK120 as an external DAC for other digital devices * connect the AK120 to device (e.g. TV) via the digital optical socket via SPDIF cable This should be able to work with my PS3 and my SKY+ box, both of which have digital optical links. I have tried to contact IRiver about the issues I'm having but they are next to useless, I have had no response from them at all, which means I have to resort to public bulletin boards instead. Thanks for any advice you may have, regards, Y. PS, I have also tried getting the AK120 recognised in Mac OSX Snow Leopard, but this also does not work.
