FireWire card manufacturer and model?
I wonder if anyone can help me with this one.
I recently purchased a Canon digital video camera. When I went to transfer from the camera to my PC I realised that I had to acquire an IEEE 1394 firewire PCI card because my PC had nothing built-in to allow me to transfer the data.
I subsequently bought the firewire PCI card over the internet. When it arrived I opened up my PC box, easily connected the card into the free PCI slot and then started up the computer (my operating system by the way is Windows XP). However, when I did this nothing would show up on my flat screen monitor. I tried putting the new firewire card into another PCI slot but still the same thing happened.
When I disconnected the card and restarted the computer the monitor worked absolutely fine again.
Can anyone offer any advice on what might be happening and how I can correct it? I would be extremely grateful.
