Thanks again, but I searched for 15 minutes and all the tutorials are for specific sound cards but I cant find one for my card. Is it possible to give me a link?

Thanks, I downloaded the file and put it in the Extensions map.

I restarted the computer and It isnt working.

Probably I have to do more things but I dont know which because I`m new to Mac OSX :)

Greetings.

Yes you should edit the Info.plist of that kext to match your DeviceID.

There is also a guide at the WIKI page.
