Windows 10 & Firewire is a total crap shoot. My Win10 machine recognizes both my onboard chipset and my LSI PCExpress Firewire card BUT it will not recognize my Presonus Firestudio 26x26. I had to build a Win7 machine to keep using it. But that was cheaper and easier than buying a
new interface.

There's a LOT of frustrated firewire/Win10 users out there. A Google search will return a LOT of hits

OK....I was told the TI interface was the best for my Firestudio Project. I have it and it worked great until I whipped my computer and reinstalled windows 10/64. It sees my projects (two of them) but says driver error?

Did you install the UC drivers: https://www.presonus.com/products/FireS ... /downloads for Project from your My Presonus account or the Presonus page itself?

Just a quick update. It's not supposed to work but I got both a FS 26x26 & a FSM to work on a Win 10 machine using the OLDEST UC drivers.....1.1.1. This not only allowed both units to sync up but they were recognized in S1 AND I have working Mixer panels for both. I am one happy camper now.

And yeah, my LSI pc express card uses a TI chipset. I've always had the best results from TI based cards.

Shout out to Cristofe!!!! :punk: I couldn't get my FS2626 to link to my Win 10 PC. But after reading his post above, I went looking for the 1.1.1 version of the UC and found it. Now, I will tell you that if you have any other UC's on your PC, the FS2626 is a paper weight. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE UC FOR FS2626 THE SOLE DRIVER. Also, make sure you run the UC in Win 7 Compatibility Mode.
After my Win 7 PC did it's duty, I went to a Win10 machine thinking I would upgrade interfaces. Well, the Studio 192 is no longer available. And, I can't drop the few grand it would take on any Quantum stuff right now. So, I am still rocking the FS2626. I was at wits end. Cristofe pulled me from the ledge. Hit me up if you need any advice on how to do this. It may take me a little bit to answer as I do not frequent these forums, but I do check for updates from time to time.

Hey Presonus: You guys should really take a look at those who are still on Firestudio 2626, or can only get their hands on one. The 1.1.1 version of the FS 2626 UC does work on Win 10 ( or at least on Pro it does). Nobody is asking you to warranty the driver or the info. Just a release (FS 2626 UC 1.1.1) on the legacy drivers' page would be nice, maybe? - Peace Out, Chaos In - Blayniac

DUDE!! Hearing that makes me REALLY happy!! I'm glad I was able to help another user keep their 26x26 flying high!! I actually have three of them! And two FSM's. These were some of the best interfaces ever made by Presonus IMHO. And as you pointed out, replacing them with equivalent newer interfaces would be a costly proposition indeed.....especially in these extremely tough economic times. I'm happy just to be able to keep food on the table and gas in the car. New gear is just not in the cards right now.

Keep On Rockin'!!

Cheers.......Cristofe

Hi!

Is there anyway to get the UC 1.1.1 driver? I've been searching but I'm not able to find it anywhere.
Would be wonderful if I could get my Presonus firestuidio project again, and reading this thread got my hopes back a bit.

Cheers!

All I was able to get this to work using Universal Control v1.2.2715, Driver v3.5.5 running in Windows 7 compatibility on Windows 10. I also ran the installer in Windows 7 compatibility.
