    So I just got a pre8 along with my new rig. I'm using it for my everyday audio on the computer as well.

    Everything worked fine when I hooked everything up yesterday, but today in the middle of watching something on youtube, the sound cuts out and I get nothing but static. Now whenever I try to turn on the pre8, the lights kind of faintly blink and my speakers pop until I turn it off.

    I have so far: Turned it off and on a few times. Tried to turn it on with only the power cable. Unplugged everything a few times. Still the same results.

    Guess I should send it back???

    I would definitely give tech support a call. Check the troubleshooting part of the manual. It may be that your firewire card is not fully supported but it sounds like a faulty unit to me.
