    Sound card rec. by Alsa but not displaying in aplay

    Hi guys, I've been having a bit of trouble getting my sound card (Asus Sonar DGX) to work with alsa, I have already run through the troubleshooting guide twice and looked at numerous other threads but to no avail..The card appears to be seen by the system and alsa is saying that it is recognising it and activating it :
    Code:
    Sound cards recognized by the system:
    00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller [8086:1c20] (rev 05)
    01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be3] (rev a1)
    03:04.0 Multimedia audio controller [0401]: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio] [13f6:8788]
    Sound cards recognized by ALSA:

    and running lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio" shows that the system is also picking up that the card is installed:
    Code:

    However, it is not showing up in aplay -l, /proc/asound/cards or /proc/asound/devices ..

    Code:
    keegs@Media-Server:~$ sudo aplay -l

    Could it be because alsa is not loading a kernel driver for the sound card, and if so how can I fix this? It should be loading the oxygen-hd driver for it which I have on my system..Please any help would be appreciated!

    Reading further, my card is supported by Alsa 1.0.26, however I am only running 1.0.25 on Ubuntu 12.04, is there anyway to update to 1.0.26?
