Ive read this with interest after battling and failing to get fireface 800 working on Belkin 1394B firewire 800 card Card Part # F5U602. Can you test on this card please and determine if it should also be a blacklisted interface?
(I successfully got ff800 to work under Windows XP SP3 using a different onboard FW400 port.)
I have now ordered a Lacie FW800 card to see if that makes a difference.
The firewire 800 behaviour is curious. I have no other device to test FW800 and I notice that upon reboot , XP resets the sidspeeed for the belkin card to 2 (ie 400/800). At no stage was I ever able to click on the 1394b network adaptor in network connections and see any speed other than 400Mbps.
In device manager , upon clicking on the fireface 800, the usual message was ; 'the device is enabled but not functioning properly'
hardware rev: 2.7
driver date: 30-1-09
Operation system (version/service pack) : windows XP SP3 (with hotfix from article 955408) running on Gigabyte EP45 extreme motherboard with Intel quad core.

Graphic card ; Gigabyte gv-3d1 dual 6600GT 256Mb
Other installed soundcards ; 2 x M-audio 1010LT, and driver for MOTU 828MkII is still installed though no longer used except through fireface ADAT.
A native instruments USB audio device is installed
5 x MIDI USB devices are installed (2 x CME, 1 x emagic, 1 x akai mpd24, 1 x Yamaha 256)
Which audio software (version) shows the problem?; I dont even get that far. THe problem is erratic but either I cannot boot
the PC, or Adobe Audition 3/ Ableton live 7.14 hangs when it tries to access fireface or clicking on taskbar fireface icons has no effect. sometimes the interface does not initialise correctly (red light still on when windows has booted)
