Windows 7: PCMCIA FireFire Cards Error Code 12

PCMCIA FireFire Cards Error Code 12

I am having trouble getting my computer to recognize PCMCIA FireWire cards. I am getting error code 12, unable to allocate resources when I plug in the card. I have tried cards from several manufacturers and they all do the same thing. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 32-Bit on a Miltope MSD-V2-915 laptop computer. The chipset used for the PCMCIA interface is a TI PCI-4520.

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

Just curious.
Where did you find one of these? Did it come with Enterprise installed?

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Everything I find says it has a fire wire interface built in already. Maybe the pcmcia does not support it or it needs a different driver. But, it is a gov mil spec device and originally for military, aviation and tactical ops use. Good luck finding much more about it.

W7 and old PCMCIA cards - do they work
Hi all I've read in some threads about people installing W7 on older laptops. I'm just wondering if W7 still supports PCMCIA cards - modern laptops don't have these anymore but these were standard in older laptops (often had 2 of these). I've got an old Sony GRT VAIO laptop (?) - huge and...
