You just need to plug one end of the firewire (IEEE 1394) cable into the external hard drive and the other end in the slot on the computer marked IEEE 1394. Sometimes you have a IEEE 1394 slot on the front panel, and sometimes it's just on the back of the PC.

If you find you don't have a firewire (IEEE 1394) port on your PC then you will need to get adapter that will change the firewire to a usb. If you have trouble finding one of those then install a card like this in your desktop:

see this topic and contact the supplier .God bless you

FireWire connection to computer keeps getting dropped. Check with manufacturer to make sure you have the latest driver and firmware updates for your camera and computer. Always turn the camera's power on before making a FireWire connection. Disconnect the FireWire cable before turning the camera off. Use the camera's AC adapter when making FireWire connections. Try a different FireWire cable and try connecting the camera to a different computer. FireWire cables and ports sometimes fail.

I need a hookup layout for audiofire4 connecting to a Roland XP 80 and to a computer


if your computer has a Firewire (IEEE 1394) port, you can use a Firewire cable to connect one of the AudioFire4's Firewire ports to the computer's Firewire port, then hook up your XP80 to the MIDI ports on the AudioFire4. Connect MIDI Out to MIDI In.

Lost conection firewire ,


Check you have the latest software or firmware drivers from their website at Focusrite.com

Check that the FireWire cable is connected properly.

Try using the supplied power cable.

Try using the other FireWire port found on the back of your Saffire product, and also try different ports (if you have more than one) on your computer.
If you have any other FireWire devices connected, try disconnecting them, as they may be restricting the FireWire bandwidth too much if connectedon the same bus.
NB: You may have more than one FireWire port on your computer. Note that they may be connected to the same bus, even though they appear to be physically seperate. This will be the case if you have a FireWire card with multiple FireWire ports on (all ports on the card will be on the same bus), and is also often the case if you have multiple ports inbuilt on you system.
Increase the FireWire buffer size on your FireWire card, found at C:/Program Files/Focusrite [Saffire product]/Driver/ASIOControlPanel.exe (where [Saffire product] is the name of your Saffire product). Its default setting is 2ms, but you may find that increasing it helps connectivity and will improve audio performance, at the cost of increasing latency.

Mac External Connection


Easy, FireWire.
Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. If reading off the laptop, for example, reboot it & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The laptop should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.

How do i get my FA-66 to work via firewire?? please help!!!!!!!


u're probably trying to connect it with a 4 to 6 pins firewire cable to your laptop right?
if so, the laptop firewire connection is usually the small type (4 pins). this kind
of connection does not give Power to the firewire device.
u can buy a pcmcia card with 6pin firewire connections and usa a 6 to 6 firewire cable
and that will work. i hope. :)

Two units conflict when connected thru Firewire 400


Windows XP and most pcs running it does not natively support firewire,as it was developed by Apple computers. Most Firewire ports on PCs are 4 pin. Your PCI card ( and I take it, its a desktop youre referring to ) should have a 6 pin connection. Firewire connections also have a 7 watt supply via the bus. You may need to open the computer and see if the molex jack on the card is being powered by your computers power supply. Two firewire drives, especially the power hungry Lacie quadras, may be to much consumption for the card. Hope this helps.

USB 2.0 vs. Filrewire - video to PC


Hi I have figured it out. Even if the USB 2.0 is faster than the firewire the camcorder itself do not transfer at the optimal speed when connecting with the USB (even id the USB can transfer faster). So the only fast transfer option is the firewire
