M-Box with brand new Logic Express on brand new Mac Pro quad
Downloaded stand alone Driver and it crashes with crazy white noise every 5 mins (or a random)
Same when I use iTunes but less frequent
when I change to the internal sound card It works fine
No decent support from M-Audio and nothing written about this problem on their website - I've been going round in circles for months with these thieving MOFO's and have had enough.
Does anyone know what's going on?

Installed the new M-Audio FireWire 410 1.8.2 drivers, updated the system to Mac OS X 10.4.9 PPC, and everything is working as it should on this G5 Dual 2.3.

I tried to use this for quite a while in my G5 dual 1.8 ghz... worked like two times , sold it and bought a MOTU. Everything is fine now.

The 1.8.1 drivers are working flawlessly on my G5 Dual 2.3 under MacOS 10.4.8. The reviewer below does not specify whether his Mac is PPC or Intel so I can only assume there are problems with the latter.

Couldn't agree more - this unit is very poor with the Mac. It worked ok on my PC.

After suffering months of intermittent functionality (crackling/loss of connectivity etc.), I was forced to splash out on an Edirol FA-66: about a million times better. It just works. No drivers needed. NO hassle.

If you have a Mac, avoid the Firewire 410.

M-Audio, it's now nearly three months since Mac OS X 10.4.7 was released -- and no driver updates. I'm beginning to see why some of your customers are angry.

Frankly, I don't know why all the negative reviews. What's the problem?

I've owned the FireWire 410 for two and a half years and it's been a joy. I've run it in 10.3.9 on a 933 G4 and currently in 10.4.5 on a Dual 2.3 G5. I use MIDI from a keyboard controller, analog IN from a guitar, mostly listen through headphones but occasionally send the signal line OUT to external powered speakers. On one early occasion launching Logic Express 7 resulted in a kernel panic, but then I was using the wrong drivers. The 410 is built rock solid and the feel of the controls is superb. And although it's not my DAW, I'm happy to see that Pro Tools can now be run on M-Audio hardware.

I bought this from the web believing it would do what I wanted. I am so disappointed with this unreliable and overpriced piece of equipment. It's almost unusable with the current drivers and 10.4.2.

DON'T BUY IT! You'd be better tying two cocoa cans together with a piece of string - and the sound quality would be better. M-Audio, you have screwed up bigtime with this product. I hope you guys are reading this.
