Reading some of the forums, I figured my problem might be cable-related. The device is known to use Core Audio driver so no additional installations were needed. The cable was of Belkin, the same brand that Apple Store sells, and it was three times as expensive as my previous ones but I guess it was woth it. Apple Mac OS X So I did what seemed like a good idea and shut the computer down and removed the AC adaptor and battery and let the machine “cool down” for an hour or so.

Posted on Sep 10, I tried re-connecting the device but nothing happened for a while and suddenly after 15 minutes or so, the computer found the device again. So if you type audio in your spotlight click on audio MIDI setup and make sure all devices are on the same sample rate you should not have this problem again well I haven’t yet anyway. Apple Mac OS X It said on the manual of the device that you can just plug and play when using Mac.

Could this be SL-related? I checked from System Profiler and it had the notorious warning: I need to get this thing working and I’m starting to panic Reading some of the forums, I figured my problem might be cable-related. Could it be that the interface is somehow not supporting the port and that’s causing the problems? I read somewhere that not-so-good cables can cause the FireWire-ports safety fuse to go off and mess up the bus, or in my case, the whole computer.
Once again device worked fine for the first two minutes but then the real problems started: You’ll need a six-pin connection to power the device from the FireWire bus, but a mains adaptor is included if you have a four-pin.

So I did what seemed like a good idea and shut the computer down and removed the AC adaptor and battery and let the machine “cool down” for an hour or so. psx
Indeed, the switch in FA’s back panel should be set to same sample rate as the computer’s. Short explanation, f6a6 case someone faces the same problem in future: I have a major problem: Naturally, a unit of this size and price is going to be limited on features, but it does provide enough for basic recording sessions on the hoof.
