Cubase does Not Recognize Alesis Master Control

Hello: I’m trying to link my recently acquired Alesis Master Control with Cubase 7.5 and it isn’t acknowledged to exist in the device setup, mackie control menu. It sees my Babyface, but no Alesis. I’ve reinstalled the driver, replugged the firewire and power cord with no success. The one caveat is that yesterday when I first was setting this up, it did recognize the control surface and it worked, but when I plugged in speakers from the babyface to the Alesis, it stopped working and hasn’t acknowledged its existence since. I’m using a Mac 10.8.5. Any ideas will be most welcome.

Okay, I solved this. Everyone can stop worrying. Bad wire.
