I just recently got the rest of my rig together, and am having troubles getting my hardware to be recognized. Here's the set up: Presonus Firepod > 6p-4p firewire cable > laptop (running 64bit vista). I also have an external hard drive, so sub that in for the Firepod when called for. The Firepod driver installation software won't recognize that the Firepod is plugged in, or that's what it seems like. Thusly, I get no driver. I was thinking that maybe I'm just really dumb and got some incompatible hardware, but just the same, when I plug in my new external hard drive, it doesn't recognize that either. Maybe both are incompatible with vista64? I happen to use a 6p-4p cable because my laptop only has one firewire port, and is 4p. Would this cause any adversities? I was told it would be seemless, but obviously something is amiss. Any help will be appreciated. I've been dying to get to this point and I'm super bummed now. I will clarify anything if need be, I'm mildly audio jargon learned, but ONLY MILDLY. Thank you in advance.
