Using an external firewire drive while using my firepod or phonic mixer makes jack stop. Any ideas on how to get the two working together? I tried this on my laptop, dell latitude d505, using a TI chipset firewire card for the firepod and the built in firewire for the drive, didn't work on my ibm laptop either, but using both ports on the TI card. I haven't tried it on my rackmount PC yet. Any ideas as to what I should check? Using a usb drive is not necessarily a problem, but I want to know everything is working and firewire is better for audio drives than USB, though for my limited track count needs it doesn't make too much difference. Thanks.
