I just installed a new PCI 1394 FireWire card. I followed the instructions given with the card, and had no problems. After I turned on my computer I attempted to use the port and upload video. A program I was using said that there was no sign of a device attached.

I looked at my device manager and saw that there was no sign of a PCI firwire card installed. After not seeing this I reviewed my installation steps and found nothing that I did out of place. Nor did I find that I forgot any steps.

I have tried many different attempts to install the card via the "install new hardware" feature in the control pannel. But I found no luck there or anywhere else.

Can someone please tell me how I can install the card or get it to show up??

Thanks for your time,
kurt

If it's seated properly then have a nose round in bios to see if it's been disabled. I'm assuming your xp and have sp's installed?

Try uninstalling SP2, installing firewire card, then reinstall SP2.

I haven't a clue then. See if there's a compatibility chart for your card as some firewire cards aren't good with AMD or Intel visa-versa.

Could be time to try a different firewire card.
