ioHD dead after firmware update
on Mar 3, 2008 at 9:31:20 pm

Has anyone had an issue with the ioHD after applying the latest firmware update? We did it because we were having the audio input issues the update portended to remedy...
We're running it on the new 8-core mac with FCP.

gee, if I had this problem (a dead I/O HD box), I think I might call the manufacturer, and not rely on the opinions of a user forum.

While I agree with Bob, I have to ask the obvious and asked if you turn off the io for 10 seconds then turn it back on after the update?

[Jeremy Garchow] "I have to ask the obvious and asked if you turn off the io for 10 seconds then turn it back on after the update?"

Agreed..

you did actually read the manual that tells you what to do to get the unit into Safe boot mode didn't you?

( there is a little hole large enough for a paperclip on the back of the unit, you can use that to set the machine into safe mode that will allow you to reinstall the firmware on the IoHD unit.)

Note that the process requires that the IoHD be attached to the computer so that all of the files on the unit update in addition to the software in the computer attached to it.

I did all these things. Thanks for the extra sarcasm. In "safe boot" mode the mac still does not see the ioHD. I'm dealing with there support people (Hector is quite helpful) in California (I'm in Texas) and the email back and forth is a bit sluggish so I sought the opinions of the Cow folk. I'll think twice about doing THAT again.

[Christopher Gomersall] " In "safe boot" mode the mac still does not see the ioHD."

The "Safe" boot mode on the IoHD should allow the Computer to reinstall the firmware correctly - Note that it is the IoHD in Safe mode not your Mac.


"I did all these things. "

you Rebooted the IoHD with a paperclip in the reset?

with it connected to your MAC you Rebooted that also - and the software does not see the IoHD?

Did you swap the FW cables?

Going to the network control panel I deleted the firewire setting and created a fresh one. Upon rebooting, the mac saw the "safe boot" mode IoHD and is resetting the firmware as we speak, er... type. Cabling was an issue the tech at AJA suggested but this seems to be working for now.
Thanks to all who tried to assist without indictment.

Negative-

Please - NEVER use or have the FW buss listed as a "network" controllable device in OSX - That will cause you any number of issues- your FW connection should never be listed as connection via IP or conventional network protocols.

The issue turned out to be a bad cable. AJA tech support was so responsive and helpful, as was our installer/guru Damon Black. He is a MacOSX/FCP/Media 100 deity from Dallas, Texas. Thanks, Damon!

PS
Thanks to all who responded with a civil attitude to my original call for assistance. That's what the COW is supposed to be about...
