I am guessing perhaps the driver will not show up. When you insert the card Windows should say something like "New Hardware Found" and proceed with prompts to install the driver. You do not let it install automatically; you select manual, insert the CD and wait a while for it to recognize the CD, and then direct it to the CD path and see if anything shows up.
Again, just a guess. Indeed there may not even be any drivers for such a card but it won't hurt to try it if you haven't already.

Unresponsive Firewire card.

Most laptops using WinXP have a hardware profile that is located in the control panel under System settings. Click on Start, then control panel and then the System icon. If you click on the tab labeled profiles there may be more than one listed. For instance there might be one for a docking station when the laptop is inserted and power supplied by the AC adapter. There might also be a second profile for when the laptop is on battery power.

In my experience, most manufacturers power off the PCMCIA slots and other non-critical adapters to conserve battery power and extend the laptops battery time.

If you look around the various profiles you might find that Windows XP is recognizing your PCMCIA Firewire card but the profile may be turning it off. In otherwords it gives you that wonderful sound that says it acknowledged your card being inserted but is powering it off right after that to conserve power.

Tinkering around in this area should give you the option to disable or enable the firewire card when on battery power.

Hope this helps.

Dell Laptop

Mine is a Dell and does this same thing. What could be wrong? The firewire card works fine with battery.

Hellooooo CJ!

Here is the very sorry tale of woah stretching back some 3 years. This is the last 6 months of it, well, up to 2004 anyways.

I stumbled on much of the solutions with a couple of fellows over on the Vegas Forum. Then I had a Dell Inspiron 8k - did my ediotng on that - it turned out to be the Dell Power Management!

So, from 16-10-04

. . and then from 31-07-03

Read the whole thing .. if it helps, great . .if not, then you can cancel it from the equation.
