Intriguing M-Audio NRV10 firewire/USB issue


I've recently bought a NRV10, and by the way am very impressed with it. There is however one issue, I know what the problem is, just don't know how to fix it..

Basically I'm using a Sony Vaio Noteboook to run my NRV10 and all is well and good until anything writes to my external USB hard drive... The firewire then turns off on the mixer.

The reason I think this is happening is that both my USB host controller and my firewire are assigned the same IRQ level. Although it's not flagged as a conflict I'm guessing that's just because the sensitivity of the NRV10 is higher than the computer expects....

Sooo, if anyone has any ideas, then I'm all ears, sadly I don't have a spare PCMIA slot for another USB host controller, and I don't think it's a processing issue - I've made sure I've got enough ram for even the heaviest task... (this happens even in iTunes!!)

I've looked into ACPI drivers, but haven't got a foggiest what they actually do...

If anyone has an idea or just wants to talk about how good the NRV10 is...
