Hi.. I'm facing a similar problem with my ultralite being connected to the PC.. A lot of threads that i refered to, mentions that the ieee 1394 card needs to be a texas instrument compatible chipset. Are you using a fw card that is TI compatible? I'm getting horrible pops n crackles at possibly all the samples per buffer (128, 256, 512 and 1024 as well !!)

You can try the legacy IEEE 1394 driver on your system already.

But ya, I'm guessing you've had bsod issues since most do at one time or another that aren't stability experts.

C:\Windows\Minidump

If you have that folder, I can look over your system and tell you everything you need to do to stabilize the machine to be perfect. That also usually goes a long way to stabilize the audio too.

You can copy files in there to any other folder then zip or rar them. Upload to http://www.Rapidshare.com or similar and paste a link here.

Other than that, I would make sure there is not overclock on the cpu/ram (as a test). Even more important than even that is to make sure that the ram timings are not advanced past the SPD spec of the memory. Lower values than intended can cause negative consequences here.

Mine is a TI chipset. I've submitted a tech support request to Motu, but it's been a few weeks and they still haven't gotten back to me.

I'm completely torn as to whether this is a hardware issue, a compatibility issue or a driver issue.

If I hear back from them, I will post here to let you know. In the mean time, post the stuff that torrentg asked for. He has some great tips on stuff that will, at the very least, help to streamline things to run a bit smoother.
