Easiest way is plug something into it and see if it works. You could look in Device Manager and see if it is recognized also:
"Run, devmgmt.msc" and hit enter.

The device manager has an 'OHCI Complient IEEE1394 Host Controller'. Could this be it?
When I plug my card in should anything appear in the tray in the same way as it would for USB?

Yes that's it. IT is quicker to recognize than usb so you won't see the long protracted hunt for driver but you should see a popup on screen with choices of how to view what's in the drive.
