Default Unable to Find audio interface attached to first HD Card

This is the message Im recieveing on my system. Have checked power, connections, ( it could be bad digilink cable??) have booted up after all peripherals are connected, checked flex cable to HD cards.....What am I missing? One of the users said that if you run HD8 you have to run OS 8..I checked that and that was not true, HD 8 will run on leopard..I am wondering why it says "audio" connection??
Im running a Roland C7200 with 3 DIF-AT light pipe interfaces..and this is where the audio actually passes from console to A/D interface...??

Here's the set up:
Roland C7200 V-Mixer
DIF-At light pipe
G5 powerPC
Pci HD cards
10.5 Leopard
Digi 192 with 3, 8 ch, digital cards (no analog card)
Dual 2 GHz

Are you very sure you have the cards connected correctly? Ribbon cables must go from B to A and not from A to B as you would guess. Double-check that and reverse the ribbon if that is the problem.

(if the ribbon cables are backwards, then the first interface has to be connected to the last card. that too would work, but is unsupported configuration)
