Hi Tony,

Sorry you're still having some issues.
If you have already been in contact with Focusrite Support, please can you let me know your email case number? This way I can check what troubleshooting you have already undertaken.
Scarlett software and drivers are fully compatible with Windows 8.1 64, however with most PCs having very different setups and hardware configurations, it stands to reason that in some cases there can be small issues crop up.

If you would prefer, you can PM the details here so I can check your email case.

Best regards
Simon // Focusrite Technical Support
And Thanks ;)
