    I have the same issue. The IEEE 1394 device is connected and has the power light ON. However, the PC, MS WIN XP Pro 64 fails to recognise. I have some data which I need to run the program. Any assistance is sincerely appreciated.

Try hooking this drive up to another PC, if it works on the other PC, then you atleast no it works. If it does work on the other PC the problem is with your PC! You may need to install drivers! Sometimes updated firmware for these devices make them more stable. Company just do not tell people!
