Firewire audio problem

Hi, I have been trying to fix this problem, please help me. I recently installed a firewire pci card so i could download my sony digital camcorder and make dvd for family everything works great until after the burn when it plays back there is a loud clicking noise thru the whole thing.
my firewire card is nexxtech pci 3+1 port 1394 card model N3PFWPC.
I am using NERO 7 when it previews before burning it is fine it is during burn process.

Re: firewire audio problem

Please notice that the firewire 410 is known to have problems with firewire chipsets that are not manufactured by either Texas Instruments or NEC.

This means that it's not enough to buy a Firewire card or to make sure you have it on your motherboard. You have to make sure that the chipset (the chip that actually manage the data transfer) is manufactured either by NEC or TI.

It's not always easy finding out the manufacturer of the chipset, but it's possible (for example my GigaBute motherboard came with a TI chip and it was written on its spec). Good luck!

Re: firewire audio problem

Are you using the 410 for recording or as a playback consumer soundcard? Is it connected to external speakers and if so, what type?

Keep me posted.

If the port is built-in on a motherboard, then the best solution is to purchase a PCI firewire card, and dis-able the old one in the Bios. (if it is on a laptop, then it needs factory service).

Driver installation problem

Some computer firewire interface's don't work very well under Windows... However...

Make sure you follow the installation directions to the letter... especially in regard to whether the cable is plugged in while installing...

Also you MIGHT try installing the software in SAFE MODE.

Then in the audio editing software you often have to configure the audio in/out device.

This can realy be frustrating... I just fought a UA 25EX to get it to work and the problem was an incorrect switch to the sample rate.

Hi, The firewire connection on my tascam fw-1804 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried replacing the cable and re-installing the drivers and still haver the problem. Can anyone help please? I'm...

First thing I would look into is the machine that has the other firewire port. Many machines use firewire ports that do not work well at all with professional audio interfaces. I had to replace my firewire card with a better one on a brand new machine to get my software to work correctly.
You might try rebooting the host machine and checking its firewire ports.
Hope this helps.

Need sound card driver

Hi Rana,

Assuming you're running Windows XP or 2000, you can download the PCI 128 Sound Card Driver Installation programs here: (They are free of charge, of course).

When you launch the program, it detects your operating system information and automatically installs the appropriate drivers.

If you're running something other than Windows XP or 2000, go here: to find additional driver installation packages.

Hope this helps, and enjoy the sound and music!

Gail :-)
