SSL Duende a "no-show" on Mac? Dynamics Plugins

SSL Duende a "no-show" on Mac?

Just bought a new Duende, installed software, hooked up firewire and turned each piece (Duende and computer) on in the correct order (and every manner/configuration since) and my Mac does not see the Duende...

Not just in software, but even as a firewire piece of hardware, not even to run the firmware updater... just says "Does not see valid Duende" or something.

I know these have been known to be picky... tried it on EVERY firewire port, it's own port, different port and even as the ONLY firewire device...

Nothing!

Anyone? Ideas?



Thanks,

I'm also on a mac G5 with a Duende. It's very stable now but I find the initial start-up tricky. I get the same error message. This is what works for me -

1. Duende connected to built-in Mac FW port and no other fw-equipment on these ports.
2. Duende bus-powered, i.e don't use the wall plug
3. Start computer
4. Turn Duende off for five seconds, and start it again
5. Repeat step 4: off five seconds and start again. I know, it doesn't make sense, but it seems like the only way to get it started properly on my setup.

Once started it's very stable, haven't had any problems at all.
