Ive tried alot of stuff to try and get it working but I still keep getting BSOD -.-
I would be so freaking happy if there was a way to make it work higher bitrate without getting BSOD.

There could be many reasons but first try this with two other computers. Try it fully, as in try 96KHz through Windows or Mac Audio Midi setup settings as well if you have a Mac. This is to root out if it is device or computer problem.
At the moment, you could try
uninstalling the E17 USB driver in device manager WARNING. If you have no idea what this is, don't attempt it. Uninstalling the wrong thing will cause massive system failure. It is not as scary for advanced users..as you know which ones not to touch and generally the device will give you the full name.
Installing the updated or newest audio, or USB(Southbridge) driver. Warning, this may also cause errors if not done right or if the driver has problems.
