    M-Audio Firewire 410 installation or compatibility issues
    Has any one ever used an M-Audio Firewire 410 with Logic Pro 8? I'm running mac osx.4.11 w 2.4duo processor with the a bran new AI. My computer doesn't recognize the firewire device and keeps telling me to shut down and try again. I've tried reinstalling, repairing permissions, restarting, and everything else I can think of. Should this be happening?

    Ok, I read a lengthy, and helpful, but depressing thread from a while ago . . . Sounds like the MaudioFW 410 has given many people issues. Please respond if any of those people came to a conclusion. I bought this thing like 5 hours ago. I'm going to cry myself to sleep now. blake

    Hi Blakeloud Unfortunately, there have been complaints from many mac users about the m-audio 410. Apparently it's drivers are not well written for the mac? I've never used one on my system but have met a few unhappy owners. My advice would be to go to m-audio website and download the drivers: [url]http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support&tab=driver&serie_ID=2&PID=5f35def5b4107998b11119907053a313&OS=47[/url] Although from what I can see they only provide a driver for 10.4.10 ! Alternatively, as it's so new, return it to the shop in exchange for a different branded audio interface. Rounik

    Hi there. I started a thread a while back about my 410, which was giving me grief. I ended up going through a lot of time-consuming steps (going from 10.4.11 on my pre-Intel IMac to 10.3.9, reloading the corresponding M-Audio driver, not getting good results... Finally, after putting 10.4.11 back on, I began trying each of the drivers, to see whether one might work better than others. And for some reason, a recent one, maybe even the one I had on originally, worked. I can't tell you specifically which it was, or why it suddenly worked, but it did. The tech support suggested waiting for the driver update, though they couldn't say whether it would be released this week, or at earliest in the fall. Yeah right. Since then, I had a power interruption, which seems to have caused bigger problems, beside frying my hard-drive and blowing a nice pair of headphones, which I wasn't wearing at the time. So I'm using a temporary Presonus Firebox, and it has no issues at all (so far). I almost hope the M-Audio folks decide my 410 is beyond repair, even though it's past its warranty date.... I had that unit for one year, and had problems with drivers at least 3 or 4 times. M-Audio won't be getting more of my business. Good luck.

    Yea, it's weird how this has played out. I was using a borrowed m-audio solo (pretty sure) that worked fine. I mentally noted that m-audio seemed to be easy to use and compatible with logic. So, I thought I'd be upgrading when I bought a firewire 410, but like you said, no luck. I'm already returning it after a day of researching how many people had issues with it. I'm not even going to waste my time. thanks
