My Capybara 320 is not working. When Kyma starts, it tries 2 times to initialize. (It writes "there are 8 processors with ... ") and then it stops. The error is "Capybara-320 is not responding. Unknown error. (22)".


Error 22 indicates a FireWire problem.

In this case, the problem was found to be caused by a bad PC-card-to-FireWire interface:

"I have found the problem! My LaCie PCMCIA-FW card is not working well. A student of mine gave me an other PCMCIA-FW card and with this Kyma is running well."

We do not know for certain whether this individual card was damaged or whether all cards of this brand have problems.

i'm getting a LOT of these errors as well. i've been talking to kurt and carla about it. things are not solved yet. however, my studio is currently completely disassembled while it gets remodeled... when i hook up everything next week i'm going to pay special attention to where my Capy goes. i too have a firewire card in my G5.. (forgotten what model it is)... maybe i'll make sure the Capy is in one of the stock G5 slots.

One thing, even on stock ports, is that if you plug in another firewire device after you have started kyma, it will cause the capy to lose its sync and pop up the error 22. This is at least the case with my powerbook and the firewire 800/400 chipset (the chipset is shared between both ports).

Plugging or unplugging devices on the FireWire bus interrupts the flow of data between Kyma and the Capybara, causing them to lose sync with each other. You can recover from this by choosing Initialize... from the DSP menu.

-- KurtHebel - 15 Oct 2005

my devices pretty much stay put... 3 FW hard drives, a powercore firewire, and the Capy. i don't un/plug them. my Capy error usually results in the entire mac freezing/crashing and needing a forced restart.. it can get quite ugly. i hope to get to the bottom of it once my studio goes back up next week.

This could be caused by a Sound with too many DiskPlayers or GenericSources (from disk) when using the old Flame firmware. You could try updating the Flame firmware at Know. KymaXUpdates.
