Ableton Live 6 / Presonus Firestudio Issue


I'm using Ableton Live 6.0.1 with a Firestudio and have an issue with routing audio. When I goto audio options in Live to configure available inputs/outputs, whenever I select an input or output then click Ok Live just crashes and have to reboot PC. By default, inputs 1 & 2 are selected for input and output, but I try to select anything else Live crashes.
I've been using Live for years, never had this problem with any other card, SB Live, Audigy, M-Audio Fastrack Pro & Fastrack USB, and FirePod. But this Firestudio card doesn't seem to like Live for some reason.
I've tested all inputs on the card using the Firestudio control pannel and it seems to work fine in there. I've tried this on 2 computers, same issue.
Main PC:
Abit Nforce NF7-S
1GB Dual Channel RAM
AMD Athalon XP 2800+
Presonus Firestudio
1394 Chipset Texas Instruments

Did you try with the firestudio together with a previous version of live?
I was just imaging...

Live is currently on 6.0.5, and the FireStudio on driver 1.0.98. Get both of these then try again.

No luck with the Firestudio, just didn't work out. I tried on 3 different machines.
I ended up taking it back and getting a Saphire Pro 26 I/O instead, and man am I happy with this card so far! Installed no problem on 2 of my machines, 1 of them is giving me glitches but it's my least powerful PC so I'm not too concerned but it works great on the others. I've done 1 recording session so far just to put in the water to see how well it can swim (figuratively speaking of course) and it's been great. So far, so good.
