Hi there,

my Ubuntustudio 12.04 system doesn't recognize the Echo Audio Fire 4 interface.

The FireWire controller is recognized:
lspci | grep FireWire
04:00.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments XIO2200A IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link) (rev 01)

lsmod | grep -i firewire
shows the new firewire stack is loaded.

I checked with my Windows 7 system. Controller is recognized and Windows states it works properly. Echo provides a console program that should recognize the Audio Fire device. Well, it does and it doesn't. For a few seconds it's there, then it's gone again.

So, not the Linux firewire stack seems to be the problem, but somehow the connectivity between the controller card and the device.

Ideas, anyone?
