Hi there,

Id very much appreciate your help on my problem with the mentioned interface on Windows 7 64 bit. For who knows this interface: the green led FW turns off every ... sec and my audio drops out. So I cant record anything. My configuration is as follows:

Dell Studio XPS i7 860 @2.8 GHz
8 Gb RAM
Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
FL Studio XXL 9.1.0
Audition 3.0
Sony Vegas Pro 9.0e (video-editing)

Ive tried a lot already to solve it:

- Downloaded and installed the new firmware (Saffire Mix Control 2.0)
- Working off-line and without VS & Firewall.
- Optimizing Windows for audio
- Trying the interface on another PC running Windows Home Premium 64 bit (interface and cable are working fine there)
- Downgrading firewire to legacy driver and software to Saffire Mix Control 1.5
- Bought a new dedicated firewire card with a by Focusrite tested chipset (VIA VT6306)

Can anyone think of a solution?

I believe if you need to go the dedicated card route you need to find one with a Texas Instruments chipset in it. That does solve alot of FW issues.
