Restoree is a tool that can restore the original contents of the EEPROM when Xonar cards are no longer recognized. The EEPROM stores a card’s hardware ID that it’s used to identify a device, in this case which kind of audio card model it is. The stored ID can became corrupted which causes the card to not be detected by the drivers or be wrongfully detected as a different card with different features and options and with some settings not working properly.
I’ve extended the original restoree.exe with support for the following cards:
- Xonar STX II: PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_85F41043
- Xonar DG SI: PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_855E1043
Follow this guide on how to create a USB bootable disk and use restoree.exe to restore the original hardware ID of your card but use restoree.exe from this page if you need it for Xonar STX II* or Xonar DG SI cards.
*At the time of publishing this updated version, the original restoree did not support STX II cards. Now you can use either one for STX II cards.
