I have a related issue I am working on. I'd love your recommendations. I have an eSATA output on my laptop as well as USB 2.0, but I need to connect a recording interface which is a male Firewire 1394. So is there an adapter that can accomplish that? I purchased a Firewire/USB adapter, but it doesn't seem to be working. The software does not recognize that the interface is connected at all. Possibly a bum adapter, but maybe it wasn't ever going to work in the first place. Any thoughts?
I'm running Windows 7 and connecting to a Presonus Firebox, btw.
Thanks for your consideration,
