    I have the same problem.



  • Rambo noir Nov 03, 2008

    I have a problem with my firewire 410. I have left it on even when my G5 Power PC is off (Blue light stays on) because everytime I got out of Logic Pro 7 and turn the interface off, the blue light would start blinking.



    Now my interface completely crapped the bed. Don't know if it's because I always left it on. My computer just fails initializing core audio when I start up Logic. It made every software on my Mac run real slow and sometimes not even open when I kept the troubled firewire410 plugged in. When I disconnected the firewire everything runs fine exept for I can't record now. Is my recording interface trashed? Can anyone help?

It means its waiting for your computers operating system to recognize it. UNplug it. Update your operating system to the latest version ( free ), and then go to www.m-audio.com and download the latest drivers.

Do not ever install drivers for a device while its connected.
Plus it would help to know whatt kind of computer and what your operating systems is.


Keep me posted.

What does a orange power light mean

please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

What does theblue light mean when its blinking

the steady, blinking blue light means it is working. If the light blinks quickly, ususally 3 times, then it is either turning itself off or turning itself on. if you're getting a steady blink, try holding the button down long enough for it to flash rapidly 3 times in succession. after that, it should blink no more, because you have just turned it off. Want to turn it back on? hold the same button down until it flashes rapidly 3 times again, and you have just turned it back on.

When 1 is inop and the other rapidly blinks that generally means a bad ground to the front light if you can't find it just attach another ground wire to the bulb socket and see if the light blinks normal.

Rover 620ti

definately operated at 5400rpm, that should be minimum. Those all audio apps recommend recording at 7200rpm, ala 3.5 hard disks. It's the set standard for hard disk recording. The drive is spiining to slow to keep up with system clock speed.

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.
