    Is There anyone out there that has been able to Get the Console and the iMac with High Sierra
    to work together. We have tried everything including the new Drivers from 2014 which said
    Mac OS 10.10 or higher.

    All is well here indeed, on a Mac Pro 2010. Your mileage may vary as there are some with less luck, even on the latest MacBook Pro.

    I'm having no issues with High Sierra and the DM4800 running Logic. Smooth as can be.

    If we are keeping a tally...High Sierra not working for me. Simply not recognized as an audio device by the system.

    Upgraded to Mojave today, and have found no issues with my dm4800 and dm-fw/mkII
    Be aware that these firewire cards are very sensitive. Don't ever plug them in while the gear is on. Had mine repaired twice. The Computer will tell you that there is no device connected, even if the Mixer tells you the Card is present and running.
    When upgrading, i always keep a backup, so i can rollback if any issues.

    Hey all, just purchased my DM4800, but having a really hard time finding the FireWire Card (mkII). Anyone have any suggestions on where to find one? Thank you!

    @SeafoxMusic Those treasures are going to be harder and harder to find. Sounds crazy but sooner than later the only way to get our hands on one is to actually purchase a used DM that comes loaded with the expansion card.
