Hi,can anyone help,
Just installed 1394 FireWire Card,apparently XP should automatically detect& install the correct driver etc.Wrong! nothing happens.
Have double checked card is installed correctly,& pushed fully home in slot,even tried different slot,still nothing!
Have checked in Device Manager,not listed,Add/remove Hardware,not there!
HELP,any ideas.

Just to confirm about XP I bought a Firewire card recently from dabs and on installation XP immediately recognised it and did the necessary.

It is conceiveable your card is duff.

Same as bremner

I installed my firewire card months ago. On bootup x\p found it, loaded the drivers itself and declared it ready for action.

Didn't even have to press a button. lol

You seem to have done everything possible, may be duff.

Good stuff.

PCW do have some good bargains that do work. I picked up an Epsom cx 3200 all in one yesterday. £99.99. Didn't have to pay postage or wait 2-3 days.:)

Had the usual hassle at the check out, over the price.

Works like a dream first time. Very impressed.
