SW1000XG breakout cable port pinouts

I think i haven't written properly what was my problem, so I'll try again.
What i need is infromation about what the pins of the miniDIN port on the card are for (which is for ground and which are for in/out signals)
I couldn't find that kind of information in any audio store nearby.

Regards, Adam K.

The cd audio lead won't fit into the socket on the card

CD audio cables are usually restricted to 2 or 3 types (there may be others - I just haven't seen it yet). They look like these:

The one on the left is the type most often found on the CD drive itself and motherboard header pins; while the one on the right is the style most often used to connect to the jack on expansion cards like yours. Many sound cards offer more than just one way of interfacing CD audio. Sabrent is not an exception. Depending on the particualr model sound card, you may find that it has two different jacks like those shown below:


Either jack will support audio input. If your cable is unable to use either jack, you'll need to obtain a cable that will connect from the CD drive to the sound card. Bring the old cable and the card with you so that you can select the proper cable.

You can of course buy a "universal" cable. it looks like this:

This cable should provide a way to connect just about every type CD audio connector to audio input jack on a motherboard or expansion card. It is available for as little as $1.49 here.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Lost conection firewire ,

Check you have the latest software or firmware drivers from their website at

Check that the FireWire cable is connected properly.

Try using the supplied power cable.

Try using the other FireWire port found on the back of your Saffire product, and also try different ports (if you have more than one) on your computer.
If you have any other FireWire devices connected, try disconnecting them, as they may be restricting the FireWire bandwidth too much if connectedon the same bus.
NB: You may have more than one FireWire port on your computer. Note that they may be connected to the same bus, even though they appear to be physically seperate. This will be the case if you have a FireWire card with multiple FireWire ports on (all ports on the card will be on the same bus), and is also often the case if you have multiple ports inbuilt on you system.
Increase the FireWire buffer size on your FireWire card, found at C:/Program Files/Focusrite [Saffire product]/Driver/ASIOControlPanel.exe (where [Saffire product] is the name of your Saffire product). Its default setting is 2ms, but you may find that increasing it helps connectivity and will improve audio performance, at the cost of increasing latency.

Protools mbox2 issue

it doesnt sound like its the mbox more maybe the protools install. But as far as the cable goes can you tell me if you can ping the mbox throught the 1394 connection. If you cant ping it then damage may have been caused to the unit and it may need to be serviced. I fix my own M-box's but in my store it only costs around $50usd to fix almost all problems with a mbox2
