Saffire Pro 24 Windows 7 64bit Firewire problem - RESOLVED

Just a quick note to let folks know so that they can avoid similar frustration.

I was trying to use a saffire pro 24 with a newish gateway win7 64bit pc and onboard firewire. Did not work in any way shape or form after messing about with various settings for over 4 hours.

A half hour trip to my local best buy and 35 dollars later I found that this Dynex 3 port firewire PCI card works perfectly at the lowest ASIO buffer size of 64.

Granted I was not torturing it with a huge mix or anything. Steven Slate drums, groove agent, akoustik piano, couple tracks of guitars, bass and couple tracks of vocals. Some compressors, uad effects, etc.

Hope this helps someone somewhere :-)
