Hi guys!

I have 2 systems on my hack a 10.5.7 and 10.6. Under snow leopard my MOTU 8 pre card is not recognized although it should be according to MOTU. I've read many threads on many forums about that and no solution so far. Here are my specs:

Gigabyte P35DS3L - intel Q6600(no speedstep) - Nvidia8500GT(512) - Corsair 8 GIG 800Mhz - Belkin generic FW card

Any ideas?

Cheers!

My 8pre works great in 10.6.1. Have you tried a Firewire HD? Maybe your firewire ports are down?

I do not have a FW hd but i have checked With IORegistryExplorer It sees it without problem. And also i have a friend who has a genuine macbook and he has the same problem with his 828 Mk2. It has to be something else. Anyway i might just have to wait for a driver update.

hey slambucka,
Did you try it in 32 bit mode ?
My experience with my motu PCIe 424 was on 10.6.0 it worked on 64 bits.
but when I have updated to 10.6.2 my card was not visible by the system.
I have solved the problem booting in 32 bit (arch=i386 in com.apple.boot.plist)
Then everything works including my TC powercore FW....

all gigabyte motherboards have firewire port controlled by Texas instruments chip. Your Belkin pci/firewire have the same firewire chip? If your Belink have a VIA or NEC or LLC firewire chip....maybe this is the problem!
I use directly thr firwire port on biard or a pci/firewire "Exys" ( it have a Texas Instrument chip) and work perfectly on my MOTU 828mk3 friewire.
Then...try to upgrade your motu firmware ( if it's possible)
