Vista - recognize IOGEAR GHE135C 40GB HD on Firewire Port

In reply to: IO GEAR External Hard Drive Install

Looks like this discussion has been dormant since 2004. My HD has worked well, with some minor OS tweaks on a Toshiba 1905 Satellite for several years using the Firewire port with XP SP2 OS.

Now trying to get a new Gateway laptop to recognize (running Vista OS)on Gateway firewire port with no luck. Have read the referenced link but does not appear to apply.

Open to suggestions.

Hint: Windows? Use USB.

Mac? Use firewire.
Linux? Use either.

Microsoft didn't embrace firewire...
