Ultralite MK3 issues

Hi;

Been in contact with the Motu tech support for past two months now with no clear solution in sight! A quick rundown of the problem:

- Using the MK3 on my iMac running OS 10.5.4
- The unit worked when I first received it.
- two months ago I fired up my system to record some music and the trouble started

As soon as I turn on the unit, it goes into this "on/off" loop creating a pop sound everytime it does. I even recorded a video of that behavior:
http://www.synfony.com/temp/mk3.mov

I've tried basically everything: reinstalled my system OS, reinstalled my drivers numerous times, changed firewire cables, etc.. A few things to note: this unit works great on other machines. It only gives me trouble with my home machine, the iMac. This behavior happens even when the mac is shutdown, so as long as the firewire cable is connected, I have problems.

The firewire port on my mac works just fine. I can hook up hard drives to it, and I even connected a Prosonus Firebox with no issues.

I'm really stumped!! Hoping someone out there has experience this, or can steer me in the right direction.

thanks;
J.

The OS is now 10.12.3
An OS update may help. Unless it used to work on Snow leopard but now doesn't on Yosemite or newer. Apple will say that it is up to the third party software manufacturers to keep up to date. Arrogant or what!

Are you installing the drivers before connection the unit to the computer, because that is what the manual tells you to do. Otherwise I suggest you contact their help support.
