Windows 7: IEEE Interface Problem with Windows 7 (64 bit)

IEEE Interface Problem with Windows 7 (64 bit)

Hello Forum,

I am experiencing what appears to be connectivity problems between my system and IEEE (Firewire) cards / devices. I have just purchased / installed a “SYBA Firewire PCIe x1, 3-port 1394a” card. My system successfully installed the driver(s) and detects the card in the Device Manager as a “1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller”. I have also purchased new IEEE cables to connect my devices.

My problem is that the devices I attach to the card either get an error code 43 (in Device Manager), or the device is not listed anywhere in Device Manager. The two devices I mention are; 1) SONY model DRU-510A, External DVD-RW – This device shows up in Device Manager with the Error Code 43. However, when I utilize the USB connection on the device, it works fine (which tells me that the device is working properly but the IEEE interface is not. The second device; 2) SONY DRC-TRV22 HandyCam - This device does not show up in Device Manager nor does my video editing software (Power Director) recognize the device.

Some previous posts with similar problems suggest installing the “legacy” driver for the card. I tried this but it does not change anything, neither device works vie IEEE connect. Any assistance with this problem will be greatly appreciated!!

You need to always mention the number as IEEE1394 which is Apple's Firewire, IEEE1284 was used for Parallel Port printers, and there's many other uses of IEEE. IEEE1394/Firewire is rated at 400Mbps [Mega bits per second] while USB 2.0 is rated at up-to-480Mbps.

Looking up your model Optical drive shows it as an Internal drive, do you have it installed in a box to use as an External drive? Product Details | Sony Storage Support
