Master Control not showing on firewire bus, numbers on bootup

I have a master control that has issues appearing on the firewire bus. It hardly ever shows up in the system profiler on mac, thus fails to connect. I've tried it on a number of 2008-2012 macs without success. It was showing up on a 2009 macbook several times and was working fine but can't get it to show at all now. Any ideas? Also does anyone know what the numbers are that flash up on the display on bootup, I've seen a number 1, 2 and 3 show up on the display immediately after hitting the on switch, then goes into the usual boot procedure.
