Hello,
I have several external HDs that run actually via USB. These HDDs allow FireWire 400 and 800 (connectors are present);How and where can I control if these FireWire connections are supported by my system OSs.
I tried , I connected one of the HD's with the correct cable to the available slots, and as result receive the "blue screen"....
Do I need to install some software ? I already have a PCI card with this type of connectors installed.

Thanks in advance and Mery Xmas to all. :thumbsup:

There is no onboard firewire support. My personal take is that firewire is a thing of the past, supplanted by USB. USB has a higher data transfer rate, I believe....but that's not the complete story.

You can easily add a firewire PCI card to your system, obtaining said capability.

I thought a PCI firewire card was already installed. As to the root cause of the BSODs, no idea.

Does the firewire card show under Device Manager (without a yellow exclamation mark)? Are drivers installed?

Hello and thanks for replying.
Yes, there is a PCI card already installed .
On this card I have 2 USB connectors and 2 , I think , FireWire connectors .
In fact it says IEEE 1934 ans the format is almost like =
/-------I
I I
\-------I

Hope it is understandable...... :thumbsup:

My error for not reading properly...are the drivers installed for this PCI card?

Manufacturer and model for the card?
