Windows 7 and Firewire
Today I finally got the last piece of gear I needed to start recording, I thought I had done my homework and planned well enough.
During the setup everything went fine up until I hooked up my audio interface (Mackie Blackbird) to my laptop (running windows 7) via firewire. After I did this my laptop would crash with a blue screen everytime it was connected by firewire.
I read up on it and I found many people having similar problems, some of them found that switching to a Legacy driver sorted their problem. So I gave it a try and it seemed to have done the trick, but once I started my software (tracktion 3 for now) everything seemed to be running really slowly and it wouldn't even display my interface as an input/output option, so I switched back to the original driver and I was back with my original problem of the laptop crashing.
If anybody might be able to help me sort out my issue(s) it would be appreciated massively!
Thanks and Merry Xmas!
