Michael, I don't think that two sound cards can easily work
side-by-side due to hardware resources. There are only so many IRQs
and DMA channels available. I for example never could get my existing
home WinXP system to work with two sound cards because of hardware
conflicts. (but then I also have other h/w in that box)
Sure, the o/s detects the hardware. But the hardware itself cannot
function due to hardware conflicts.
I suggest first confirming that this is not the case before continuing
to look in Ubuntu for the problem.
