Disk Cache Overload

so for the past hour I’ve been mixing a really cool song… 10 minutes will go by and I’m really getting into it, and then BAM. no sound. disc cache overload light comes on, and stays on for about 2 minutes, completely killing my groove. every 10 minutes. for an hour. it’s making me want to rip my hair out.

I’m using an OWC Mercury AL-Pro firewire drive into a lacey firewire PCI card… I’ve tried using the texas instruments drivers and the windows legacy drivers and its the same problem either way. I can use this same drive on my studio PC for 12 hours straight with no problems at all… what’s the deal?

Check if the reply i posted here helps:
