Question about Dell 2-Port IEEE 1394 FireWire CardBus PC Card (NBFWPCMCIA2P) Serial Adapter
Hello, I am trying to use a SIIG 1394 three port low profile PCI card with my dell optiplex gx620. I have tried two cards already (one purchased from dell) with no success. The device does not show up in the device manager at all, and have had zero luck in getting the add hardware wizard to recognize the card.
When "manually adding hardware" in the add hardware wizard, i select IEEE 1394 controllers, and select 1394.inf somewhere in the windows folder. After selecting this I get a screen prompting me to select from a list of manufacturers and devices which are both empty.
If anyone would like to share any possible solutions, it would be VERY much appreciated!
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'
type 'sfc /scannow'
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
