I suspect it is a power issue.

Try plugging a powered usb hub into the PI and the sound card into that.

The recommended power supply is at least 1amp for the Pi but it only
supports powering a level less than that for devices.

Other people with similar problems have cured it by replacing the power
supply or using the powered usb hub.
