Most likely it's your drivers, try updating them from the manufacturer's website. If you can't find the particular driver, try updating your motherboard/chipset drivers as the Firewire driver is often included in there.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123 also gives instructions on updating the driver using the Update Driver tool in Device Manager.

We'll need the make/model of your motherboard to determine this. Here's a link to a free program that'll give you that information: http://www.gtopala.com/index.html

Sometimes it takes a while for us to get back to you. In my case, I've been working a lot and haven't had time to get here since yesterday.

Anywho, I presume that this is an Acer computer. Am I right? If so, go to the Acer website: ( http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html ), enter your make/model and download the motherboard/chipset drivers.

If it's not an Acer mobo, then it's most likely this ASRock mobo: http://www.asrock.com/product/K8%20Combo-Z.htm

I'd try the USB drivers first, then maybe the IDE (I've got no experience with Firewire and have disabled it on my system).
