Tough One... But I did manage to find where they went; it seems you need to be a member, for additional information. As a registered user of PPA International, you should be able to request a link for the driver. Give it a try, register for the newsgroup e-mail and then use the 'contact us' feature to request the location and or link to the archived driver, it never hurts to ask..
please try to clean the mouth of the PCI slot by wiping with a white paper..... re fix it, power the machine and allow the hardware to be detected... you can now try installing the driver software ....
What you want is a USB hub. That will allow you to connect more than two USB devices to your computer. There are two types, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. USB 1.1 will work for most slow speed devices, USB 2.0 is better for cameras and hard disks that have the support. You should confirm which version of USB your computer has, but you should be OK getting a USB 4-port hub, plugging that into your computer, then plugging your keyboard and mouse into the hub and using the other port for the new peripheral that you wish to install. Old PCI cards are problematic because you need the correct drivers. You also need to make sure you plug them into the proper PCI port. It sounds like the device you got from e-bay might be bad, so you shouldn't continue to use it. If you post the make / model of your computer we might be able to suggest a new PCI card that will work if you still want to add more ports to your computer.
1394 drivers should be native to XP, you may be able to correct this by running an SFC scan
Take out the IEEE1394 card Insert your Windows CD (if you do not have it order a backup from dell) Exit out of 'install screen' click Start click Run type 'sfc /scannow' press enter you should see a progress bar, when finished restart the computer
this compared critical windows files on harddrive vs CD, and replaces missing and corrupt files
Most likely the card is not being recognized properly. Try the following to try and resolve the issue.
1. Ensure you have all of Microsoft's Windows updates for your operating system, uninstall the drivers and reinstall drivers for the card IF you have Windows updates to download/install. 2. Install the card into a different PCI slot (again reinstall the drivers). If you do not have another PCI slot, swap it with another PCI card (if you do not need that other PCI card then leave it uninstalled physically to see if the problem goes away) 3. Update the BIOS on the motherboard. To do this you may need to contact your motherboard or system vendor to assist.
