Can't get Firebox driver to install on Win 10, just get a list of devices which work with Win 10. Blue light on but can't select Firebox as it's not showing in sound card option, so no audio. Help!

Please, please help Presonus!

Sorry, not going to happen. The Firebox has been discontinued for a looonnng time. It is no longer supported by Presonus. However, as has already been mentioned the Firebox driver can be installed on Win10 in compatibility mode. I've had a Firebox, Inspire & Firepod all working on Win10....but that OS is not officially supported for any of those devices. It may be that your firewire chipset is not compatible.....here is a list of compatible firewire devices:
