[QUOTE=Kerry56;2671786]Windows XP has support for firewire with no need for extra drivers. ][/QUOTE]This is true for the most widespread chipsets. On my old Dell Vostro 1500, there is a Ricoh chipset that is a combination of card reader and firewire controller. I had to install the drivers from Dell in order to get the whole stuff up and running.
@“sister”. If the generic Windows drivers do not serve the purpose, so please check with the manufacturer of your computer (or motherboard) for drivers.
