Default Thinking of selling my Digi 002, please Help :(

Ok, something has to be wrong with my settings. I cannot seem to get my digi to play back for more than 20 seconds before I get that annoying error about the whole "buffer size" thing. I'm sure everyone here knows about this. The thing is, i've searched on here like crazy, and I can't seem to find out how to fix it.

I have a Powerbook G4 1.5Ghz with 2Gigs of ram. That should be more than enough. I have tried every combination of buffer sizes and it still won't work. I tried playing back about 8 tracks, and it crashed. I use a Firewire external drive, not sure if it is supported but I don't know where I can get the perfect one. I read that Firewire drives only support 8 tracks of playback? If that is true, then why would I want to record anymore? I'm confused. Can someone help me? If someone can please recommend a firewire drive that actually works. Maybe the right settings. I was looking at getting a Korg 32XD. I really need help with this.

thanks in advance
-bobby

If your firewire drive doesn't have the Oxford 911 chipset then it might be the culprit causing the buffer errors. A properly compatible firewire drive can playback 48+ tracks easily, not sure where you heard it could do only 8. If you need recommendations on compatible firewire drives, just search this forum, the question comes up every couple of weeks or so, so there's lots of past threads with many recommendations in them.
