So recently attempted first build and having an issue with playing any files in Media player. getting the error:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

Im running the Xonar DG 5.1.

Im wondering if it has anything to do with the fact that i have 3 devices loaded. When i pull up system info i get the following:

Should i be disabling any of these?

Sorry if this is obvious, not that computer savvy.

Thanks in advance

right click on the speaker in the right bottom corner of your Screen, select playback devices and enable all the rest, and right click on one of the listed sound drivers and pick as default device
