Ive borrowed my mates Focusrite Saffire Pro40. Im using an iMac with Thunderbolt. Since the interface uses Firewire i had to purchase an Apple FW to Thunderbolt adaptor.
I have downloaded the latest mix control software but no matter what i do i can't get my Mac to see the interface hardware. Not real sure where to go from here.
Im using Mojave and have only really just upgraded to that. Starting to wonder if its my Apple adaptor. I have provided a couple happy snaps of said adaptor and Firewire cable.
Is anyone able to see by looking at them if something is not right? Do i have the corrects cable here? Is there a different cable i should had purchased?
Did you follow all the guidelines of how to connect the Pro 40 to the computer?

I can only speak from my experiences. Downloading the user manual is a must on the Pro 40. This device is capable of so much, but only if you know how to maneuver through its webs. If not you get stuck on some of the simple tasks.
Try using the other firewire port on the Pro 40 I know my computer like the 2nd firewire port better, the previous owner must of worn out the 1st port.
