i had this exact same issue...i called presonus' technical support who pointed me to presonus' website and FAQ section...number one on there is "should i update my firewire patch?" thats the solution...if youre running windows xp service pack two then you need to install this firewire patch from microsoft in order to get your presonus to stay recognized...it's easy to do and works perfectly!

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on
if you don't have a motherboard disk or the driver disk you will have to download one

IF YOU HAD ANY RECENT UPDATES ON YOUR PC.IT MAY HAVE CHANGED SOME DRIVER SETTINGS. UPDATE YOUR DRIVER ON THE PRESONUS WEBSITE. IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD CABLE.

Connection Through Hub


The hub is most likely the problem.

A lot of hardware doesn't like to be used with a hub (webcams, ipods, etc)

My best advice is use a PCI firewire card.

Sounds like you have a defective FireBox. If you can, exchange it at your retailer. If this is not possible, please contact techsupport@presonus.com to arrange for a return authorization.
Alternatively you can try to search out a solution to your problems on our forums HERE.

Vista and firewire 1394?


Firewire works fine under Vista, but it's quite possible your USB to Firewire bridge doesn't have proper Vista drivers. You wouldn't expect Vista to include these, they would be installed from a disc that came with your adaptor. USB to Firewire is a questionable option at best... there are often problems with it. You may be better off with a PC-Card or ExpressCard solution, if the laptop is your only computer.

Also, when the camera says "DV IN", it's expecting video from the PC to be sent to it, it's not in capture mode. Most camcorders must be in either "play" mode, or a special "link to PC" mode in order to even be recognized by Windows (any version) as a video input device.

However, until you resolve the issue of supporting your Firewire device in Vista, nothing the camcorder does will be an issue yet. You should check the documentation that came with your USB to Firewire device, the driver disc, etc. for information on Vista support.
