Need driver dwnload for a "1394 Net Adapter, v. 5.1.2535.0

by kimmyhead_oicu812 / December 17, 2010 11:10 AM PST


I'm looking for some help in locating a free updated driver dwnload for my Toshiba laptop. The driver needed is for a "1394 Net Adapter" for v. 5.1.2535.0. My OS is XP Professional and this Net Adapter is what was originally installed on the laptop. Any offer of help would be appreciated.

I didn't have to "ever" find or install this one. It would show up as I installed XP and the usual machine's drivers.

Tell more.

Thanks for your reply...the problem is that I can't locate my original XP disk. Any ideas how I might be able to do so, without it?

That's a problem.

Sadly you'll have to turn up a XP CD to resolve this one. If no XP CD, how about moving up to 7?

Beyond the firewire drivers that are fetched from the XP CD, the next hurdle is that many other apps may fire the "insert your XP CD" message. Some try to find the missing XP bits on the internet but it's rare to see that work out.

Having seen this problem many times I think it's best to find that XP CD or move to another OS.

One last question and I'll leave it at that..I promise! Although I'm not able to locate my XP cd, I do know my XP Product Key #. Is it possible to do something with that information, somehow?

"Will my product key work with any XP CD?"

The answer is no. Not only must the CD be a XP Pro CD but a whole list of other things like SP1, SP2, SP3, Dell or other maker and the list goes on and on.

In the future you can avoid vague replies like this by supplying system infor such as make, model, and so on.
