I can't seem to get my brand new firewire 1394 card made by PPA Int'l to work. My old firewire PCI card was fried and so I got a new one. Can anyone walk me through the steps internally in the comp. to get the card to recognize my external HD and also my Digidesign Pro Tools 002 unit to work.
Check Device Manager to see if there's a resource clash. Try different PCI slot.
Go into BIOS and disable ports not in use -- COM ports, Parallel Printer Port, Game/Midi. That'll free resources, so restart Windows a couple of times to reassign them and try installing your card anew.
