1394 Firewire Problem - Locks on Boot-Up When the cable is plugged in
Just added a 3-port 1394 Firewire to my ASUS A7V8X MB, seemed to install and get recognized by the device manager, but if the 3ft firewire cable is plugged in it freezes at the ASUS splash screen. If I plug it in after booting, my Canon Camcorder is not recognized by MS MovieMaker...I verified the cable is OK on another PC with a 1394 port and was able to download video from my Canon Camcorder from that PC. Could this be a BIOS rev issue, has ayone seen this before? I checked the BIOS settings on the ASUS, there didn't appear to be a 1394 Firewire port onboard...

You could try to reseat the card. sometimes the cards don't fit quite right and when you plug in the cable maybe it moves it enough to get a bad connection.

Interesting question. You made me go look it up. I am surprised to say that is does NOT have 1394 capability on the MB. It have many USB connectors. It seems that since Firewire never really caught on, the mainboard mfgrs have decided to eliminate the 1394 connectors to make space for USB3 connectors,
The unit goes in a spare 5 11/2" drive bay, same type as your DVD player/writer; it is held in place with screws provided.
The audio cable connects to the 'front panel audio pinout' on your motherboard or if it is a plug there should be a backside slot cover provided that has a hole in it. You pass the plug through this hole and plug it into your audio ports, the green hole.
The1394 cable is called Firewire and connects to the firewire pinout on your motherboard.
The USB cable connects to an unused USB pinout on your motherboard.
Do you need a map of your motherboard that shows where these are? They are labeled clearly. If you have never had your hands in a PC to connect things to your motherboard LET ME KNOW and I'll advise you on how to do this safely so you don't damage anything or yourself.
If you have any other questions I didn't cover JUST ASK ME by commenting below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Just because an installation may hang does not mean the board is dead. If possible I would connect the hard drive into another PC and check for a virus. While in another pc you can remove important data from the drive & copy to a CD/DVD. Than download the drives Mfg's drive software setup program that will run in Dos mode from a diskett. Reformat the drive and install a fresh copy of windows. You might find that is the only problem. Xp does not always install correctly. There may be a software or hard ware making windows hang.
You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check www.MyCableMart.com if you want an example.
Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394
If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-fw-byt.html) for more information.
