Topic: FF800 won't work with external FW bus. MAC OSX
I was really excited to set up my brand new FF800 I received today, and went through all the steps installing drivers, updating firmware, but as soon as I tried to play audio through the device ...I got about 1 second of audio before the unit tripped, and started flashing all of its lights. The device is no longer recognized by my Macbook until I restart the unit, and this happens everytime I restart the device and try to play audio through it. It will work only if i plug straight into the firewire port on the macbook itself. Am I supposed to believe I can't use the RME with an external firewire bus?
Macbook OSX 10.5.8 2.16ghz intel core 2 duo
4 GB RAM
Belkin 6-port firewire 400 bus.
Yes, the drivers are up to date.
Yes, I tried it in line with my external FW hardrive daisy chained.
I am pretty furious about this. If there is a solution to this I would be thankful. I really want this to work.
