    FIREWIRE Cards............... Kill (help) ME!!!

    Here's the story -

    Bought a nice DV Camcorder, Canon Optura Pi. It came with IntroDV firewire card. I installed it myself, windows would not recognize the 1394 Firewire card after I rebooted.

    I then took it to a local tech to have it installed, he charged me $50cnd and told me "windows doesn't recognize the Firewire card" and said the firewire card was a dud.

    I went back to the camera store and had them replace the IntroDV card.

    Took it home, installed the new firewire card, booted windows... and what do you know? didn't work. Big fawking surprize. I tryed reinstalling windows ME, still didn't recognize the Firewire card.

    Went back to the camera store, returned the 2nd IntoDV card.

    Today, I bought a "Dazzle" Firewire card, cost me $170cnd brought it home, installed the new Dazzle Firewire card, booted windows..... and what do you know? didn't work. Big goddamn FAWKING suprize. I tryed reinstalling windows ME, still didn't recognize the Firewire card.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Please help me!!!!!

    what makes you so sure it's the OS?

    is there no way it could be the mother board?
