Evergreen IEEE 1394/USB fireLINE PCI Combo Card

I have an Evergreen IEEE 1394/USB fireLINE PCI Combo Card (older USB 1.1 version) that worked well in a Mac Yikes G4. When I installed this card in a Mac Digital Audio G4, I could not start the computer. Nothing happened after the startup chime. Is there a firmware update for this card?

Re: Evergreen IEEE 1394/USB fireLINE PCI Combo Card

You might need to update the NVRAM that stores the PCI configuration that is read at POST. This is done by pressing and holding the so-called CUDA switch on the MOBO for for at least 30 seconds or so. The  eraser end of a wooden pencil makes a useful tool for this ;-) It sometimes requires unplugging the computer and removing the small battery that maintains the memory so that it is completely cleared. Please check that no connections, especially memory cards, haven't been disturbed during installation as well. HTH.

IEEE 1394 card will not install in windows XP SP3. There are no drivers available from the company.

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..

ppa Int'l or cut/paste the link into your Browser:

Pci card doesint work

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.

Iogear gpu 202 cardbus not working with mac powerbook osx 10.4.11

Try the TechGear USB 2.0 cardbus. There are some available on eBay for $10.00. Item number is 250394104416. I bought two for older Titanium 15" PowerBooks, one on 10.4.11; one on 10.3.9. The cards works perfectly with no software drivers. I just inserted them into the PC slots and they work fine. In one case, one computer had a bad factory USB 1.1 slot, so the card does well for extending the comuter's life. The card included a CD with drivers for older versions of Windows and Mac 10.1 and Mac 10.2. I would NOT install drivers for newer systems.

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

Cannot retrieve video from miniDV camcorder using Adaptec Fireconnect 8300 firewire card on Windows XP Home SP2

I have found you a Manual if that is of any help? All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?
