Question about ZT Group Cisnet T2060 Notebook Computer
I have just purchased a tascam FW-1804.. which is an audio inout device..or external sound card of types..now, the forums and sites are un-clear on any of the problems i have had..for starters, i want to run this hardare on my laptop..a compaq presario 2500 3gb 1gb ram, windows xp. the problem is, the manufacurer recommends a 6pin firewire connection, but my laptop has only 4 pin...i tried to use the device on my desktop which has 6 pin, the firewire seemed to work, and the device installed properly, but i still couldnt get sound out of it. the laptop goes to a bluescreen when i try to finalise the istallation after reboot...whch is my main problem....
I purchased a ZT desk top, that was my first mistake.
It never had audio from the get-go.
Second mistake was spending days on the phone and pc trying to reach the customer reps.
Never got answers from the phone calls or emails.
I am sending the piece of **** back.
A lesson well learned...
End of story!
Beware of the ZT"s..................

Bear in mind you need external power when using a 4 pin firewire socket.

Hi, What you probably need then is a 6 to 4 firewire converter (IEEE-1394). Should you want to build your own, this site offers the pinout connections > http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_Firewire.html Should you want to purchase a ready made converter/adapter, it is available at http://www.afterhours.co.uk/sitecom-firewire-64-pin-converter-p-497.html or google for "firewire 6 to 4 cable converter" Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
