Hi all.  Well, I thought I had revived my desktop but after two days of
installing and configuring everything, my system drive is shot.

So, I'm left with my mac book now.  I am having an issue with the FW1884
with it though.

I have the latest firmware installed, as well as the latest drivers, and
latest Sonar plug in.  Here are the mac book specs.  2.4gHz Intel core 2 duo
processor, 2 gigs of ram, 160gig hd.  I have a partition setup so half is
OSX Lepard and the other half is Windows xp pro service pac 3.  I've
installed Sonar producer 7.2 and the latest version of jSonar for Sonar

Anyways, whether audio is currently playing back or not, I am getting little
noises through my monitors every twenty seconds or so.  And then the audio
totally stops.  About six or seven seconds later, the audio continues where
it left off.  While the audio is playing, there are no cracks, pops, skips,
etc.  When the drop out happens, it's immediate and the same goes for when
the audio playback resumes.  This happens even when only listening to an mp3
or video using winamp for example.  It's not like I'm pushing the machine or
the tascam hard or anything.  I've disabled the firewire network adaptor and
that has made no difference.  There are also no other firewire devices
hooked up.  Just the FW1884.

The internal sound card on the mac book has no issues.

I am hoping that putting a new system drive in my desktop will allow me to
go back to that for my music work but it's not something I can take care of
soon so the mac book is my only midi/audio option at the moment.

Any tips on what I could do to solve this?
