FireWire: Echo Audio Fire 4 not recognized
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.
