    This question might be more suited to a dedicated recording forum, but here goes anyway.

    I have a problem with my MOTU 896HD not being recognized by my computer periodically. System works fine one day, next day nothing. I have tried swapping out firewire cables, and that's not it. I know that some sort of interaction is going on between the A/D and the mac, as if I disconnect the firewire cable, the 896 goes into standalone mode. This problem always occurs when first firing up the 896 after it has been sitting idle/off.

    Any thoughts as to what might be causing this? I've contacted tech support several times, but that hasn't gotten me any results.
