Question about M-Audio FireWire 410 External Sound System
I have a Dell XPS 400 and a WD external HD. When I plug it in via firewire (1394, IEEE) the computer freezes on startup. Using the USB cable, the computer has no problem. I've been meticulous about narrowing this problem down. I first thought it might be the HD driver. Updated...no change. Updated WD software...no change. Tried the turning HD off prior to startup...computer booted normally. Tried with USB and HD turned on at startup...no problem.
Tried updating my VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller Driver. Couldn't find a newer driver than version 5.1.2535.0
Any thoughts b/c I'd really like to have the speed of firewire for my backup drive?
This sounds silly but its true...the m-audio 410 doesn't work with windows, especially not with vista. It works on mac but barely. I've been screwing with one for 3-4 yrs now and have gone through a few that died and never had one with 0 problems, always too many to count. It works on macs but barely. it still has tons of problems on the latest and greatest. Bottom line - m-audio is crying because they're totally incompetent at making cards... or they don't give a rats a** about anyone not spending over $500.
