I bought 3-port 1394 FireWire Cardbus card and plugged it into the PCMCIA slot on my laptop (hp zv5340us) running Windows/XP Service Pack 2. It is not recognized automatically, and I don't know how to cause it to be recognized. When I attach a device to it with the firewire cable, I get nothing -- no recognition, no activity. HELP!

Your old Toshiba laptop most likely does not have a firefly port.
The only way to use your firefly device on the Toshibe is to purchase a firefly PCMCIA adapter card and plug it into the Toshiba's PCMCIA slot and install the card driver.

For your camcorder, your computer will need a simcard slot or you will have to order a cardbus with IEEE1394 connections.

The slot you looking for is on the top right of the picture, there is a lil button u press in, it will pop out, push it again and it will eject a sort of blank card, this is make sure nothing accidentally gets into the laptop when a card is not in use.
