Firewire not regonised

  jukebox 13:45 28 Apr 03

I have just installed a pci firewire port to my Packard bell Pc (windows XP)to use with Creative J/box 3. When it would not work, I checked the Device Manager, but could find no reference to IEEE 1394. Jukebox is only new and works fine via USB. Anyone help?

Look under Network Adaptors, 1394 Adaptor.

XP recognises that Firewire can be used for networking, so lists it as a network interface.

If it is not there, physically remove the card and try it in a different PCI slot.

As a general observation, this sort of query is better posted in the Helproom, rather than ConsumerWatch.

Thanks for the reply

This was my first journey inside my computer and maybe I was a bit too cautious. After re-seating the card it now seems to be working fine.
Thanks again

My Firewire purchase advised me to keep the pci card as far away from the graphics card as it could cause probs.
