DeviceTuner was initially created to solve the problems of a particular
FireWire devices ability to transfer data reliably over a FireWire bus. Being unable
to copy files to or from a FireWire hard disk, for example, is a common symptom of a larger
problem: less than optimal signal quality on the FireWire bus. This can be caused by a
myriad of factors, but regardless of why it happens, DeviceTuner can likely help.
FireWire troubleshooting education can quickly become quite complex. Therefore, if you have interest in the "nuts and bolts" of how this product works, Intech strongly recommends that you download the Device Tuner User's guide from the link near the bottom of this page.
Important Note : Due to the dramatic improvements in FireWire hardware and firmware reliability over the
last few years, Intech has decided that it is time to stop development of this product so that we can focus
our efforts elsewhere. This product will still be provided in our installer software and can be used on PowerPC
based Macintoshes running 10.2 through 10.4.6.
