Hello to everybody

Once again, and sorry if I'm annoying some of you, but I request your help
about following problem.

I have a LaCie d2 external dvd burner with both usb2 and firewire
connection ; my laptop is only usb1 compliant ; when connecting the burner
on the usb connector, it works ... I can write cds and dvds, but slowly ...
the firewire connection does not work : nothing happens at all, although I
tried to push the button (according to the LaCie support team !).
I tested the burner on the firewire connector of 3 different laptops,
running all 3 Windows XP, but without success ... the firewire connections
of the 3 laptops were tested OK (network and recorder connections).
If anybody got the same problem, tell me please how it could be solved (or
not).

Thanks.
