Problems with FireWire Audio Devices (Windows)
Text size [-] [+]

If you are experiencing problems with your M-Audio FireWire device such as pops, clicks, dropouts, buzzing, or distortion; or if you are having problems installing your M-Audio FireWire device, we suggesting connecting your M-Audio device to a FireWire expansion card with a Texas Instruments chipset.  This generally remedies most problems experienced with built-in FireWire ports (even those with Texas Instruments chipsets) or with FireWire expansion cards using a different chipset*.

Also make sure you are not double powering your device.

Plese refer to the Firewire Troubleshooting Guide for help with troubleshooting these problems further.

* If you are unsure as to whether a specific FireWire card uses a Texas Instruments chipset, please contact the manufacturer of the card.
