    Hi all,

    Not sure if this has been posted before but i couldn't find it.
    Here's a solution to use the DM-24 IF/FW with DM OS X El capitan.

    Download here:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    With this package the drivers install in El Capitan friendly /Library/Extensions/, rather than /System/Library/Extensions/.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    INSTALLATION:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    (1)
    Remember that the signed driver requirement of OS X must be disabled.
    In recovery mode in El Capitan (CMD+R at boot):
    "csrutil enable --without kext" at the terminal.
    or
    By 'nvram' boot-flag in Yosemite:
    "sudo nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1" at the terminal.

    (2)
    Reboot.

    (3)
    Double click installer. Follow instructions.

    (4)
    Shut down.

    (5)
    Connect and turn on device.

    (6)
    Boot up and be happy. Enjoy!

    I have to thank the guy.
    In hope your search is a little shorter than mine,
    Enjoy cheers.

    Well I'm confused! I have been running my DM24 on El Capitan, on two different computers and it just works. On the Macbook with firewire 800 I used a hard drive with both FW 800 and FW 400 as a go between, on the iMac with FW 400 I had to use a shorter cable. But on both Macs it just worked, and showed up as a coreaudio device.
    Am I missing something?

    Even on High Sierra it just works plug and play. Hadn't time for a stress test, but it looks promising.
