IEEE 1394 adapter not recognized

I just bought a new IEEE 1394 Card Bus Adapter for my Vista laptop (Toshiba). The box says it is Vista Compatible but the instruction manual only goes up through XP. I put it in the card slot on the side of my computer (it only goes in half way...???), but the computer does not recognize it and the install wizard does not come up.

Again the product is a Dynex IEEE 1394 Card Bus Adapter (handed to me by the Best Buy salesman) with model number DX-FC202.

Greetings,
Assuming you have a new laptop (based on having vista) your laptop is most likely equipped with an express card slot instead of the older standard. Here is a link to illustrate what I am talking about:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16839147002
Note that it is a different shape than the card you purchased from Best buy. Hope that helped.
Take Care,
-WN

When I loaded the 2.0 cardbus on my laptop, the system recognizes the hardeware, yet will not accept it. My buddy says that there should have been a power adapater for it to plug into a separate outlet -...


The adapter should work directly from the bus internal connections. An external supply is not required (except for other devices plugged into the adapter that draw more power).

Not compatible with xp


Quite correct, it was manufactured for win95, 98 and NT 4.0 systems. It's about time you bought a new one don't you think?

Need to know if this adapter is compatible with this monitor.


Not in the way you describe. You would need to get a Mini DVI to DVI cable according to your description, they are cheap and available at any electronics store.

Is this the right product for me


Hello,

Yes, but make sure the model type is what is listed below although they should all be the same today as there are no standards war. For your PC you will need a video capture card unless your video card has it, chances are it doesn't. You would have an adapter already that came with your video card that has plugs coming out. There would be 5 or 6. If you don't go to tigerdirect.ca or newegg.com and do a search for "video capture card" Prices range from $50 and up. Get one with the best warranty is my advice and if you wish I will find one for you from a reputable card maker. Just ask me by commenting below. And if you have any questions about the details below just ask me by commenting back to me.

I just purchased a 2 port 1394 Card - Nexxtech


This seems to be a basic hardware conflict; shut down and UNPLUG the system, then MOVE the 1394 card to a different slot on the motherboard, then reattach the AC power cord, reboot the system, and see if the problem has been solved.

Let us know what happens...
