Question about Canon FireStore FSC-HD100 100GB DTE Recorder for XL Series 100 GB Hard Drive
The implementation of the firewire 1394 driver in Windows 7 is different.
Read this document at the MSWindows 7 site.
Also see if these instructions help with your existing firewire card.
Alternatively check if the firewire card has got a Windows 7 driver from the manufacutures. If this is not possible then buy a firewire card which is Windows 7 compatible.
Please rate the solution

This almost sounds like an IRQ conflict with the firewire card. You say Best Buy installed it for you? I would take it back to them and tell them the situation you are having and tell them you need it to work, or to have them somehow prove the firewire card is working. I am guessing you are probably running Windows 7 on this new machine, but that shouldn't be a problem since you had it working fine before with Vista..
This is what I recommend you do, it is very complicated to resolve irq conflicts, especially helping over a text based help system, but that is indeed what it sounds like.
You can try moving the firewire card to a different slot on your computer's motherboard (hopefully it has another slot... unless it's a lower end model it definitely should) and that will usually clear it up. But if you are uncomfortable doing this I would definitely take it back to Best Buy and tell them it is not working.

There's an error in the communication between the pc and the firewire card.
Take the card out and run a system cleaner - one like
Then find out the exact model of your card (it's printed on the card) and go to the site of the manufacturer and download the latest driver for it - download as in Save, not Run.
Once the download is complete shut down the pc and install the card. When the pc starts it will be automatically detected - close all the windows that will pop up and launch the downloaded installer.
By the way Sony Vegas crashes because the RAM memory of the pc is too little - for such large files you will need at least 8GB of RAM
