pci firewire for Windows 98

  Newuser4274 16:45 16 Feb 2004

I should like to use my pc to edit my dv video camera. I need to use a firewire to download the data but they seem to require Windows 98SE as minimum system. Is it possible to use a firewire with my Windows 98 or do I need to upgrade my pc. Many thanks.

This was asked in PCA recently,and on searching it would appear that you need to upgrade to 98se then install another d/l.I have just been back thru my previous postings but couldn't find the previous thread.

This Startech product click here looked like it would work on Windows 98, but checking the makers website click here, it has to be 98se. I don't think Windows even worked reliably with USB until 98se, so I'm not surprised that this is necessary for Firewire.

Firewire support came in with 98SE. As far as I know, no manufacturer of firewire PCI cards supports 98 first edition. Certainly the belkin and nikon (nikon supplied, source unkown but device manager says NEC) cards that I have only work with 98SE onwards.
