I had this same problem, I contacted MOTU's customer support and it is caused by the firewire chip being blown. They said this is most likely caused by someone accidently plugging the firewire cable in upside down. Have a look to see if you firewire ports on you traveler look split. Its a hardware thing and you'll have to contact MOTU to get a repair done. They will probably just send you a new unit.

How to do factory reset


a sudden power-outtage "lock up" a MOTU audio interface.
In this case, the power switch was engaged when power was lost... and when the power came back on (power switch still engaged), the 896HD was locked up.
After powering down and back up... the 896HD worked as expected.
HOwever
after more chasing today I found out, when the 896HD firewire cable is disconnected from the computer, the 896 initializes properly. So then I tried plugging the firewire into my 8Pre. That unit then didn't initialize properly.

In addition, I noticed an external firewire/USB hard drive was not being seen either. When I hooked it up using it's USB port, it worked fine.

So, at this point I'm guessing it's an issue with my TI Firewire card. I have one in another machine and will cannabalize it tomorrow and report back. I hope that's all it is.

As it turns out, it was a bad fire wire card. Put a new one in this evening and, voila! She worky now

It seems the new macbook pro does not support the firewire connector. Is there a different wire available? It looks like the macbook pro has a firewire connection but it is much smaller than the original...


The problem lies in your cable!

The new macbook pro still uses firewire and will be compatable with your drive. It just uses a 4-pin instead of a 6-pin connector. You can get an adapter or new cable that goes from 6 to 4-pins.

They did take away firewire from the new line of plain macbooks though (shakes fist at steve jobs)

Problems with a motu 828 audio interface


I have the same model. Mine is has never had any problems other than latency issues. BUT just now I have blinking led lights and it has no sound and does not even get recognition from my computer now. I dumbfounded cause its been in the same spot with never being dropped or bumped so I'm gonna take off the face and air clean it. Crackling I did have and as soon as I or sprayed air on the "open" pots it went away. This first generation in my belief should have some sort of recall or refund at a trade up value. I'm now a recording studio with no anolog to digital converters cause my FIRST GENERATION motu 828 is all fritzed out man. It's pain full. I swear when I go to their site they recognize your system and blast at your computer to make sure its all legal which in turn destroys your software and epuipment. Every time I've been to their site. I've had to reinstall all my softwar which I bought from them, re input my serial #'s and last site i went to was the Digi page and blam. anyway, I suggest to just open it up, spray the insides to clean it and pray. lol...

Lots of noise when laptop power cord is plugged in


You must be running on pc, or it sounds like you may have a ground loop issue. If you are running a mac, then bus power over the firewire should be enough. If your running on a pc, try getting a pcmcia card with 6 pin firewire ports. If not then your pc laptop will have to power the 410 via ac adapter. That means both should be plugged in tot he wall. Ive gotten that interference before, and gett it on any audio, whether im producing or playing itunes. I find the trick is to reset the 410 via the output window in the top right. It's right above the level knob. Also, try just installing the latest driver, with the 410 disconnected, then launch it from a different file path than the icon.

I still use it for the macbook pro, and its not always top notch. I bought it 3 years ago for 500, and i see what 500 buys nowadays.......MOTU!!!!

Keep me posted.
