Topic: New Mac driver for FF UC including error state detection
as we now have a small number of users suffering from (typical Windows) USB performance problems on their Macs we have rewrritten the Mac driver to be even more robust.
This new driver should fix problems after overload, standby and similar, which caused constant distorted playback for some users and required to reset the driver. The change of the transfer mechanisms affects both driver and hardware. So your FF UC requires a new firmware, and both new driver and firmware are not backwards compatible. You can go back to the old driver and firmware, but you can not use only one of both.
If you have problems and want to try this driver proceed as follows:
Download driver and new firmware:
New driver 1.40 and firmware 104 have been released on the website.
1. Update the FF UC firmware.
2. Update the driver.
3. Switch off the Mac and the UC.
4. Power-on the Mac and the UC.
5. Check firmware version 104 and driver version 1.40
6. Report your findings here.
