    After installing SP3 my firewire card stopped working even though it is still showing in windows XP system devices. So must be a problem with SP3

Will it support a IEEE 1394 firewire card?


Yes, it can, but it needs to be a low-profile PCI board. Here is a link to a site that can sell you one. There are other sites as well.

I have a acer aspire, ,what kind of pci card do i need so i can have a firewire port ieee 1394


Hi John,

The Acer Aspire 3502WLCi does not has the ability to use any PCI which can be compatible with Firewire IEEE 1394.

The model was designed not to support such type.

Need a 1394 firewire port and suitable software like Corel Videostudio. Then no problems. When no 1394 port thoes pci cards come cheap, $15 or so. Video studio retails about $100 I think, you can download a free limited 30 day trial from Corel. Please uninstaal that demo after 30 days with the same install programm otherwise deep ****.

Dell Optiplex GX620 will not recognize firewire controller card


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

Firewire and USB are not the same things
You will need a Firewire host adapter installed in your PC - such as Q-Tec PCI card (IEEE 1394 compatible) which comes with software / drivers

Good luck

My computer doesn't even recognize my camera


if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.

I have found you a Manual if that is of any help? www.adaptec.com/en-US/support/firewire/FireConnect/AFW-8300/_docs/afw8300_ug_pdf.htm All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?
