TASCAM FW-1804 FIREWIRE PROBLEM

MY TASCAM JUST USED TO WORK GREAT.
BUT LAST WEEK THE FIREWIRE JUST STOPED WORKING.
I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. I USE MACBOOK WITH MAC OS 10.4... I HAVE REINSTALED ALL THE DRIVERS FROM THE TASCAM WEBSITE...ALSO THE APPLEFWAUDIO AND REINSTALED THE MAC OS TIGER...WITH NO SUCESS.
MY FIREWIRE PORT FROM MACBOOK ITS FINE, I HAVE TESTED.
THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE FIREWIRES PORTS FROM THE TASCAM, BECAUSE I HAVE TRIED TO USE WITH A PC/ WINDOWS...AND DOENST RECOGNIZES THE FIREWIRE EITHER.
THE PROBLEM, I THINK, OCCURED WHEN I TRIED TO USE AN ADA 8000 FROM BEHRINGER...FOR ADAT WIHT THE TASCAM FW 1804. THEN MY TASCAM FIREWIRE PORTS STOPED WORKING.

PLEASE HELP ME, I'M FROM BRASIL AND OUR TASCAM SUPORT JUST SUCKS.
THANKS

    The Firewire port on my 1804 is faulty. I have tried the Mac Firewire downgrade ( available on tascam .co.uk). The firewire LED comes on briefly and then dies. The LED doesnt stay on long enough to update the firmware. If anyone has solved the same issue please help.

I have a Tascam 1804, and i've had the same problem. Mostly with Latency issues. For me, replacing the firewire chord with a gold plated one worked. PLUS, remember that the firewire connection is technically considered a NETWORK connection which is modified by whatever controls your network activity (ie. Firewall, Anti-Virus). Whenever i start to use my Tascam, i make sure I disable my WiFi and other Internet/network related items so they dont cross interfere with activity in my firewire port. hope this helps.

I had the same problem after re-installing windows. The firewire just didnt work on the tascam interface. I managed to solve the problem by upgrading from windows xp to windows vista. I downloaded the vista drivers from the tascam site and everything sprang back into action. Problem solved! Hope this helps.

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.

FW-1804 sounds keeps skipping and cutting out!


I've tried multiple times to set up the 1804 with my mac pro...so far no go...the computer hasn't been recognizing the unit. I've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled a few times, made sure I had the right 6 pin fw cable, plugged it in when prompted, and still, the control box of the 1804 states there is no available device. I did downloaded the most current version. Before I go through this process again, do you have any advice on some more possible kinks?
