So last year decided to try getting a used computer for the rehearsal studio and it came with Win 10 32bit preloaded. It is a bit old HP laptop but it seemed to work good and had the most important thing - a firewire port.
Everything installed and worked as a charm until at one point during rehearsal the FP10 won’t sync and Device Manager came up with the FP10 device or maybe 1934a device listed under as “disabled”. Enabling it continued to work. At about the same time it started causing the same issues with my Edirol audio interface and that one locked up and needed to be reinstalled. After reinstall it works.
The FP10 and firewire interface alas did not. So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the 1934a firewire controller drivers, even installing the 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy) as recommended by several sites and Microsoft and nothing. Reinstalled the FP10 interface several times.
The FP10 works without a hitch on a Win7 PC, so it is not that unit.
Only other thing I can remember is installing Kaspersky Total Security or something like that which has a software part that controls which apps run and are outdated, etc. I uninstalled that before trying to restore the driver installations.
At this point, honestly, I’ll take any suggestions.
I am thinking of rolling this PC to Win7.
