    I'm thinking about moving my CPU into the other room....
    how long can a firewire cable be with out causing problems?

    I can't get past 12'. I tried 25', but got no connection. 15' only holds the connection for about 30 seconds. Now I'll have to drill thru a block wall to get my controller into the drum room.

    I'm going from a Tascam FW-1082.

    Hope this helps.

    you might consider getting that looked at... the original spec called for 15 meters... so depending on if you round up or down thats about 15-18 feet...
