Profire 2626 on XP HELP!
Okay, so I have a macbook, and a PC running XP with SP2. The profire loads up and works beautifully on the macbook, but I can not for the life of me get it to work on my PC. Trying to open the m-audio software it just says "no device found" every time.

Yes I've:

-re-installed the driver (many times and it's the right one)
-restarted the comp and turned it on with the interface already hooked up and powered on (many many times)
-tried a new firewire card and every port
-tried different firewire cables
-hooked a firewire external drive up, and it worked just fine!

so.... microsoft? My install is fairly fresh (few weeks old) and It did actually work a couple times a few weeks ago when I had just gotten the unit, though it was being stubborn then too...
I have also noticed that I can not get a USB hub to recognize on this PC either, could that be any relation?

I'm a nerd, but I need a super nerd to help me with this one!

Read my sticky on the m-audio forums for a work around to this.... I also posted it here on GS awhile ago. I don't know the chipset of that model, but my fix works for TI... I'm coming out with a via / agere fix soon. My user name is Blakegaston on M audios forums.
