Re: 1394 PCI card freezes my Dell D600 when detected
Well a little investigation revealed that there are no 1394 controller drivers. The driver, per the IEEE 1394 standard, is part of the operating system. This would explain why my previous 1394 card worked without instalation of a driver.
The card in question is an adaptec DuoConnect 3020. Adaptec does have a driver out there for the USB side of the card, but installation of this driver had no effect on the problem. I'm beginning to believe that this card is simply incompatible with this specific application, as the card works fine in a desktop.
Unless anyone has any clever ideas, I think I might just resign myself to finding another use for my PCI slot.
Thanks to all who pondered for me.
